The 'Big Story' Returns

Charges have now been laid in last month's 'big' story from Digby.

Both an off-duty Halifax officer and the black youth that was tasered and arrested have been charged with creating a disturbance.

And, alas, it appears that numerous independent witnesses have now stepped forward to say that they did not hear any racial slurs uttered that fateful night. Kind of makes you wonder why we hadn't heard from them at the time, doesn't it?

Personally, I would be real interested in sitting in the front row watching both of these charges being tried. Assuming they ever will be, of course. What do you think are the chances that the officer might just decide to plead guilty in an attempt to lessen any more adverse publicity from the event?
