The Constable's funeral is tomorrow. They announced on the news tonight that one of the two who were apprehended will be tried for first degree murder. As well he should be.

An aside: the two guys were stealing airbags when this happened. And they were out on their own recognizance for the crime of stealing airbags.

Imagine that.
