DA Nancy O'Malley receives award for "contributions to the field of victims’ rights"

Original post made by Jtjh, Vintage Hills Elementary School, on Apr 14, 2014

IT seems that the Alameda County District Attorney Nancy E. O'Malley has won two national awards. One is for her "contributions to the field of victims' rights".

Nancy O"Malley is, of course, the DA who decided it was inappropriate to bring any prosecution in the case of David Lamont, who was left in a coma after confronting rowdy teenagers outside his Pleasanton home.

There is currently a link to the press release about the awards on Alameda County's home page for the DA:

This news should be on the PW's front page. It's a shame to be notified of this by such a knucklehead as JTJH.

Once again folks, if O'Malley had enough evidence in the David Lamont case, she would have prosecuted. She did not so she could not. I appreciate, especially today, April 15, that my tax dollars are spent on cases the D.A. knows she can win. Congratulations on your award Ms. O'Malley. Well deserved.
