The media here made a big deal about this because the guy is an MMA fighter. Front-page headline, 3rd page full-page story, interview with Shawn Tompkins..the whole deal.
If he was a Tim Hortons employee I wonder if it would have received so much exposure.
What a joke.
Having said that, if he's guilty, I hope they come down hard on him.

I thought it only fair to post up that this guy was acquitted.
