Whitman County (WA) Prosecutor Denis Tracy: Worse Than Kim Davis
Whatever you think of Kim Davis, at least she had the integrity to stand up and say she was going to willingly violate the law. She went to jail and didn't care if she became the world's laughingstock.
Same with pharmacists who refuse to sell birth control pills because it violates their religious beliefs. Yes, they're assholes and should be fired for refusing to do their jobs. But it would be even worse if one of these pharmacists said “OK, here are your birth control pills” and handed the woman a bottle of placebos instead.
And that brings us to Whitman County Prosecutor Denis Tracy (hereafter referred to as Kim Davis without the balls). If Denis Tracy had Kim Davis' balls, he would have come right out and said “I think chasing a wolf in your vehicle, and then shooting it and having orgasms while you watch it die, is the manliest thing I've ever heard of, and I will not prosecute Jonathan Rasmussen even though he's a pitiful ball-less coward who has broken the law. Send me to jail if you must.”
But NOOOOO. Instead, Prosecuting Attorney Denis “Dude, Where's My Nutsack?” Tracy pretended to go through the motions of prosecuting Jonathan Rasmussen for chasing a wolf in his vehicle, catching up with it and shooting it. This is a crime punishable by a $5,000 fine and up to one year in jail. But instead, Denis Tracy gave Jonathan Rasmussen a stern lecture, said “Bad boy! Don't let this happen again [wink]” and gave Jonathan Inbred Rasmussen a suspended sentence and a $100 fine.
You may remember the movie Cape Fear, where Max Cady, a rapist who had escaped from prison, was determined to get even with his defense attorney. He had found out while in prison that his defense attorney had purposely thrown the case. When he cornered his attorney, he said he didn't have any grudge against the prosecuting attorney or the judge. “They were just doing their jobs. But YOU...”
If anyone in or near Whitman County thinks Denis Tracy is beneath contempt (and deserves to have a real-life Max Cady stalking him), perhaps they could pay him a visit and “talk to” him [wink] about it.
