Miscarriage of Justice--Mayerthorpe/ 2

Peter Bowal has been on the radio.  His article is being debated on the opinion pages.

After watching the CBC videos, which Mary kindly sent the links to (couple posts back).  The one video deals with the sting operation against Cheeseman and Hennessy.  That video makes them indeed look like scapegoats, victims of both Roszko and the police.  The other video demonstrates how unprepared the junior officers were to deal with someone like Roszko, how the system failed to put Roszko away and emboldened him further, how people demanding accountability were silenced.  Hopefully, all this leads to some improvements.  About Hennessy and Cheeseman, you wonder if they should be in prison at all.
