Applause for USA in Detroit

In a rare move, the United States Attorney in Detroit, has informed the court that it does not want to proceed on felony charges "against a state senator and a county realtor.  See Detroit News here. Co-editor Peter Henning is quoted in the article, praising the prosecutor. 

It takes guts for a prosecutor to say he or she will not proceed with a pending case.  That's what you call a true "minister of justice."
