Evidence, what evidence?

It should be clear by now that there is NEVER enough evidence in the entire Universe EVER convict a BC Liberal of ANYTHING. Remember Jane Thornthwaite, when she got busted at a road block coming up from partying at the Olympics and blew .30 over? Remember what she said?

(Jane Thornthwaite)...admits she was impaired when caught in an RCMP roadblock last night. North Vancouver-Seymour MLA Jane Thornthwaite says she was returning from some events when she was checked by North Van RCMP.

Thornthwaite claims full responsibility for her actions and expects to be charged with impaired driving.

She must have woke up sometime since then and remembered that she was, after all, a BC liaR and thus there was no reason to admit to anything. She went to court today and according to the CBC Drunk-driving charge dropped against B.C. MLA:
B.C. Crown prosecutors have dropped a drunk driving charge against Liberal MLA Jane Thornthwaite, following her arrest at a roadside stop last year during the Olympic Games...../snip

But on Tuesday in court, that charge was dropped by Crown prosecutors who said they had insufficient evidence to proceed with the charge....../snip

Instead Thornthwaite pleaded guilty to a Motor Vehicle Act infraction of driving without due care and attention.

Immediately upon posting the story was followed by:

"This story is closed to commenting."

I guess the CBC was afraid their servers would go down from the heavy traffic like a DOS attack, just from the rest of the poor souls in British Columbia who have had their car towed, stored for months at their expense and had to pay a fine for blowing about HALF of what the Queen of the North Shore blew. Today our friend Laila pointed out that our unelected premier is busy renaming ministries in her spare time, some of which have been renamed two or three times already in the last year. Custom Stationary providers must be big donators to the Liberal Crime Family too!
While you're at Crusty, perhaps you should think of a new and more appropriate name for the Ministry of Justice!

This, like so many other apparent travesties, leaves me shaking my head. I had a look at what was posted on Straight Goods yesterday, and I could feel the pain, I was the pain. Your rather calmer look is great, but there can be no balm for the open wound, festering with the uncertainty brought on by the sense that there is no civilized recourse to such uncivilized behaviour.

It is pretty clear there was little evidence, other than testimony of the arresting officer, the roadside testing, the two breathalyzer tests at the cop shop, the police station video and the widely reported public confession. Other than that, not much evidence.

If this precedent applies to everyone, let's drive down to the local bar and have a pint or six. Just drive home with due care and attention.
