|If you're gonna hold a press conference to shame a district attorney into filing charges against someone, you might want to make sure charges haven't already been filed.|
The Horse and Carriage Association held a press conference this morning to "say goodbye" to "Oreo," a horse that got spooked earlier this month and raised a little hell in midtown before he could be captured. Three people were injured.
The union also used this morning's press conference to attempt to call out Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance for not prosecuting a female protester who assaulted a carriage driver a few days after the incident with "Oreo."
"It's time for DA Vance to send a clear message to NYCLASS that the harassment and attacks on hard-working, law abiding carriage drivers must come to an end," HCA President Steve Malone says in a statement.
Only problem is, Vance already sent that message -- when he filed three counts of assault and one count of harassment against the woman the day of the alleged assault, which happened nearly two weeks ago.
Seems like a rather significant PR oversight when calling out the D.A. for failing to file charges against a person whom...well...he filed charges against.More »
