Attempted Execution Foiled
Fast-acting police foiled Blake's attempt at self-imposed justice and pulled him from the icy water. As of this writing he was resting comfortably in a hospital bed, having been arraigned gurney-side by District Justice Rich Capelli.
It will now require a jury of Mr. Blake's peers to adjudicate his guilt (or innocence) in the matter. Unless, of course, he pleads guilty. In a way, he already has, hasn't he?
