Update on Tank

Just when you think the Tank Johnson issue is close to being finished it refuses to go away.  Tank's lawyer has asked for an extension to file a motion to dismiss charges.  The two points he makes are:

  1. Johnson is a legal resident of Arizona, therefore  the Chicago rules do not apply.
  2. He also questions the validity of the search of Johnson's residence.  He believes the police went outside the limits of the warrant.
Honestly, I don't know enough about law to know if he is just blowing smoke or if he has legitimate claims, but the fact is he had the guns and regardless of whether this is dismissed or goes further, the tarnish is already on Johnson.
