"Albany County District Attorney David Soares said he would not prosecute anyone for trespassing in the park and an assistant district attorney followed through when the first of the protesters made an initial appearance in City Court on Monday."

Looks like David has his lackies in line.

He (Soares) said he wasn't going to prosecute and if the Gov wanted to he would have to appoint a special prosecuter. Like him or not he for once is actually doing what he said he would (or in this case wouldn't) do..

Now lets see if the Gov makes his move, or shall we just waste more of the taxpayers dollars
