Justice for Some

Phillip John Walsham, originally uploaded by ddbsweasel.

Phillip John Walsham died a short time after being beaten up. It was said that three men who assaulted him also came back to him later, and threw him from a footbridge. Phillip died of injuries sustained, later.

The three had been convicted on circumstantial evidence. They had been guilty of the first assault, but denied the later one. The result was DNA evidence that tied the aggressors to the victim did not place the three at the place of the second assault.

HP Lovecraft described a horror scenario. A man was faced with a liveing horse. It had the head of a horse, and the body of a horse, but it wasn't THE SAME HORSE! Doesn't that describe those three thugs?
