putting teeth into law enforcement, and common sense into prosecution

a brief post, with a link:
as some of you may know, there is a trial coming up in iowa city,
involving a bicyclist who has been charged with assault,
following an altercation with a motorist who assaulted him with his car.
[see, charges DO get filed in some instances. ask ME,
and i'll tell you first-hand how they seem to get it fucked up.]
donald baxter is the defendant, and there is a movement afoot
to pressure the county attorney to drop the charges.
read all about it here.
we'd all appreciate helpful comments, both on this blog,
and directly to the iowa city press-citizen.
