These arrests happened because there was video evidence and were circulated already. However; they will come out in bail easily as we have a special/lenient law for politicos and their henchmen

It's not a 9mm pistol. It's a 38 or similar revolver. A sidearm probably issued to a cop.

Two questions that may hinge on my ignorance - 1) are they given the special treatment in remand prison and, are they put together. If this the case then might as well release them.

How these people become PC members..it's because we elect them. It's not entirely our fault , it's the party who let them represent them is also in fault. Will the party sack home?
