So…. he didn’t hurt anyone.

He was put away for a victimless crime

For having antique guns in a locked safe (while having a felony in his past), which hurts no one.

For selling cannabis, which hurts no one, and is now legal in his state.

60 YEARs in prison for not hurting anyone!?!?!?!?!

Thompson had no guns on him during the marijuana deal for which he was arrested in 1994. Police searched his home and found 13 firearms, which he wasn’t legally allowed to own because of his prior felony convictions. Many of the firearms were antiques and were stored in a locked gun safe, according to Nessel’s letter.

Thompson said Tuesday that he accumulated the firearms over several years, put them in a box and forgot about them.
