Rebekah Brooks and husband arrested in new twist in phone-hacking inquiry. Yes, Rebekah Brooks was arrested again! For a different crime! Along with her husband! And what was the offense? Why it was suspicion of conspiracy to pervert the course of justice, and four other people were also arrested. I'm just guessing here, but I recall reading that Brooks' husband was alleged to have ditched (or attempted to ditch) a briefcase in a dumpster shortly after the phone hacking scandal exploded, so my gut says his charge has to do with destruction (or attempted destruction) of evidence. Might be the same for the rest. And prosecutors and courts hate that. They really do.
If I seem gleeful, it's because I am. Not just because some filthy people may finally get their coeuppance, but for the bigger reason--if these miscreants actually are convicted and see jail time, yes News Corp. suffers a blow, but more importantly some justice will be served. And in a world where war criminals go unpunished and Wall Street bankers are lauded for looting the treasury, any act of justice, however small, is so very precious.
