The Herald is up in arms today about a manslaughterer who was "released from prison on a technicality" (to quote their front page lead). Except that when you look into the story, you discover that he is currently suspected of arson, and the "problem" is the inability of Corrections to recall him to prison on the manslaughter charge because he had legally completed his sentence.

Next no doubt they'll be complaining about people being set free on the "technicality" of being found innocent...
