Democrat Prosecutor David Leyton is Debating Whether to File Charges in Macy's Attack

"I will make a fair and just decision as to whether charging, or not charging after I have all the information."

It has been ten days since the brutal attack on a white Macy's employee by a black suspect occurred at Genesee Valley Center but Genesee County prosecutor David Leyton (D) said Tuesday he still hasn't decided whether he'll file any charges in the case.

Damire Palmer, 18, and Damarquay Palmer, 22, shared video of the June 15 attack themselves on social media and it was picked up on Monday by President Trump.

Conservative Matt Walsh highlighted prosecutor David Leyton's dillydallying Wednesday on Twitter:

"All the materials from the evening have been reviewed and it is clear that the attack was unprovoked," Macy's said in a statement on Tuesday.

"I will make a fair and just decision as to whether charging, or not charging after I have all the information," Leyton said in an interview with ABC 12 WJRT on Tuesday.

Leyton claimed he wants "more information" as their police reports are not "complete" and suggested Trump should "send more resources" to Genesee County to speed up the case because it's "not the most wealthy county."

This is beyond parody.

Leyton last week decided to back off prosecuting criminals for low-level crimes "in light of the very important social conversations currently taking place across the nation."

Leyton in 2010 was accused by Debbie McIntosh, the mother of 2006 murder victim Adam McIntosh, of letting her son's killer and his accomplices off easy.

McIntosh said in an ad aired in 2010:
"Our son Adam was brutally murdered by drug dealer Horatio Brown and two other gang members.

"David Leyton promised he would prosecute those responsible.

"He promised us justice.

"Instead, he cut an outrageous plea deal with Brown and then he refused to press charges against the other two killers.

"David Leyton lied, tricked and conned us.

"Then, his office told us to get over it. How do you get over the death of your son?"
Leyton dismissed her claims by accusing her of "anti-semitism."
