D.C. sinking to new lows - arrested for having an empty casing?

Emily Miller, a Washington Times editor, is coming out with a new book and recounts seeing a D.C. police roll call advisory which directed officers to overlook a spent shell casing in a car if the driver had a registration certificate with them, despite an apparent law to the contrary. Thus, if you don't have a registration certificate, you can be arrested for a completely spent shell casing. I don't have a link to the law but here's a link to the story -- http://washingtonexaminer.com/warnin...rticle/2535216.

I can't believe such a law would pass any level of scrutiny, even rational basis. It is WAY overbroad. I mean, how much more harmless can you get than a spent shell casing?
