More Charges Dropped

A quick and happy note: More charges against Glenn Stevens have been dropped. Allen County Kansas has dropped the charges against the Raymore man. That leaves just one county in Missouri, and they still want to look at the events in the Wal-Mart in Maryville. Hopefully it won't be long for that case to come to a conclusion.

No apologies as yet. No monetary recompense. Yet.


Author's note: In reviewing the report linked in Mr. Hart's post, it appears that the Maryville charge has been dropped for now and that an incoming county prosecutor has retained the right to review the case and renew charges according to his judgement. So no charges right this minute against Mr. Stevens, but small town/county law in one area, perhaps feeling pressure from Wal-Mart, is continuing an interest in prosecuting the case next year. (Boo hiss on them.)

Dear The Observer,
I am glad to hear more charges are dropped, at least for now.

FOR NOW-- it could be special interests. It could also be a prosecutor who wants
a. press time
b. not to apologize
c. to look "tough on crime"
d. to screw around with people

No no, I'm sure he's a loving, principled guy. Such insults from me. I don't know how I do it.

Oh, how funny! LOL!

Maybe just intimidated by the bullies from Bentonville...

Meantime, The Observer is not shopping at Wal-Mart. I don't know how long I'll avoid the place but for now it's Target, K Mart and other non-Wallyworld venues.
