Government dismisses charge against gun owner
July 2, 10:43 AM
The government has thrown in the towel in its prosecution of Albert Kwok-Leung Kwan for possession of a short barreled rifle. A June 25 order dismisses the indictment against him "based on the government's motion."
Go, read the rest, and the court documents attached. Kwan's reputation, his fortune, his military career and his faith in the US system of justice have all been destroyed. At last report, the naturalized US citizen who was born in Hong Kong is working in China translating for US-based Christian mission organizations, preserving his little remaining assets by living for a quarter what it costs over here and reportedly sleeping easier in the PRC dictatorship than he does these days when he's in the states. He tells a friend that at least in China, you have to DO something to bring the coercive power of the state down on you. Here, you get it thanks to a hungry US prosecutor's fishing-expedition whim.
