So, Erik Walden spends the weekend in jail, but is released today with no charges filed against him …
Wow, not a glowing illustration of a great system of justice.
Two questions come to mind at this point: Is there enough evidence to charge Walden, the Green Bay Packers linebacker, with battery against his girlfriend? and what do the Packers do at this point as to whether to play him in the next game against the New York Giants?
Walden’s girlfriend, the woman who was treated for injuries at St. Vincent Hospital early last Friday morning, now claims that she started the fight with Walden.
The district attorney has said that until police determine who initiated contact in the conflict, charges are pending.
It will be interesting to see what transpires in the next few days.
