Your premise seems to assume that the police had no evidence before going to the trouble of waking these dudes from their slumber at 6:30 in the morning.

I wouldn't be so sure.

Time will tell of course.

At what point do I assume the police had no evidence? I don't get where you get that from. Having evidence and making it stick or getting confessions are two entirely different things. Made all the harder by "no comment until I see my lawyer". That's all I'm saying. You would be surprised how many times the police think they have evidence only for the Procurator Fiscal to say "we wont have a chance of a guilty verdict based on lack of evidence so we cant waste public money by taking it through a protracted court case with little chance of a guilty verdict".

Lets not get carried away. It hasn't even got near a PF yet.

I wasn't trying to start a row :laugh:

 

You are correct of course we shouldn't get carried away.

 

My point is simply that staying silent is not necessarily enough to let them walk.

 

It is just my personal opinion that these arrests are a significant development in the process of finding out what happened in this debacle...
