109. I don't know, that article doesn't say why they dropped the charges

It is entirely from Hess and Stern's point of view and gives only their accounts of what happened.

Charges get dropped every day and it doesn't mean the police arrested the people just to harass them - by that standard the police could only arrest the guilty and we wouldn't need trials or legal proceedings or anything. So that does not prove Hess and Sterns are 100% correct and telling the entire truth.

The article does say they are suing, so it will be interesting to see if the jury awards them anything or if they get a settlement.

And some board is looking into the police conduct, so it's not like the cops always get to do whatever and not get questioned or held to account.
