Smellie acquittal.

Enough has been written about the unfortunately named Sergeant Smellie, his asp wielding, backhanding panic attack a year ago and his acquittal yesterday without me adding to it. I was there last year but did not see the incident, but I do know that from the morning of the previous day the cops had been hyped up by their superiors to a quite dangerous level. The end result was that a totally innocent man lost his life. I will just add that there's a very fair and balanced piece over on the Fitwatch site and you might find some of the police blogs worth a look.
