You know that guy, Gregory Graniss, who smashed the bus window after the Giants won the World Series? Oh, I’m sorry ALLEGEDLY smashed the bus window? Yeah, he pleaded not guilty.
Which seems like a stretch given the photographic and video evidence showing him, you know, smashing the bus. But despite the plea, it’s not like he and his lawyers are denying reality here:
“The San Francisco Giants’ victory was amazing, and it really brought out the best in San Francisco and, unfortunately, the worst in Gregory,” his attorney, Doug Rappaport, said outside court. Graniss stood next to him holding his mother’s hand, his lips trembling. “He is very ashamed of his actions and very, very sorry. And now he’s going to set an example by making amends, and he only hopes that San Franciscans will find it in their hearts to forgive him.”
Obviously they just want to make a deal and negotiate the charges down some. Not that that will be easy, given that the D.A.’s statements suggest that an example is going to be made out of Mr. Graniss. A pretty righteous example, if you ask me, but an example all the same.
