Madonna DA admits to goof

Manhattan prosecutors admit they made 'a dumb mistake' for letting a Madonna-besotted ex-firefighter slip through their fingers by waiting too long to try him - but they want another crack at him anyway.
Robert Linhart had been busted in September 2010 after he twice parked outside the singer’s ninth-floor, Upper West Side apartment, opened cans of paint and started crafting poster-board professions of love.
He was charged with felony weapons possession - for a gravity knife and an awl - and spent several weeks in Rikers, unable to post bail.
The case was dismissed last month for prosecutors’ failure to meet speedy trial deadlines.
A judge yesterday agreed to give the DA another shot.
'If this was John Q Public and not Madonna, they wouldn’t be pushing so hard,' Linhart’s lawyer, Kevin Kitson, told The Post.

Umm, yeah, she's an icon and needs to have her safety protected. We don't want this to be a story of 'they should have done this in order to avoid that from happening'. Celebrities need to be protected, as do regular civilians, but celebrities have a lot more of these issues than the everyday person.
