Amanda Bynes

City Atty PISSED After Actress

Skates in Hit-n-Run Cases

Amanda Bynes
is a danger to the public ... and a judge should NOT have let her off the hook in her 2 hit-and-run cases after she paid off the victims ... this according to the L.A. City Attorney.

We broke the story, Bynes was charged with two counts of hit-and-run stemming from two separate incidents over the past year in which she allegedly plowed into cars ... and fled the scene.

But Bynes has since struck a financial settlement with both sets of victims ... and Amanda's attorney went to court this week and convinced the judge to throw out the criminal charges against the actress.

The decision INFURIATED the L.A. City Attorney's Office, which STRONGLY objected based on the fact that there were multiple incidents and that Bynes has a DUI case pending, stemming from an incident in April when Bynes allegedly crashed into a cop car.

As for the DUI case, the District Attorney's Office is still moving forward with that case -- which is scheduled to go in front of the judge next month.

I just do not have much respect left for the California judicial system. It's becoming a sham.

The USA social and economic systems are geared to protect that small minority above the masses of common folks.
