Protectorate Protection Racket?---
We spoke with Protectorate Chief Hell Guard yesterday, on exactly what happened leading up to the Suspect known as Glacier being found on the steps of the Protectorate headquarters.
Her story of the events seemed to change, as the interview progressed, at first she stated "The injuries she [Glacier] sustained were caused in our attempt to arrest her as she attacked the fire station and killed everyone inside" Later going on to describe someone with injuries no where near what she was later found with, Stating that she was interrogating the suspect in a room with multiple officers present, then had this to say on the injuries "I can only assume she attempted to attack my officer, who was forced to defend herself. " and later, "the defense of my officer occurred only minutes before she was released. I know the officer who removed her from the station also called an ambulance to pick her up. The fact she lay there on the steps is not because we booted her out and left her to die, but because we did not wish her to remain in the station while the ambulance took too long to get there." this indicates she was less than forthcoming as to why the suspect was injured and left on the streets, for an ambulance that was going to take a long time, even though, as she mentioned later was "yes, I said it took too long to get there, and then that it should've arrived in a reasonable amount of time. "
The Chief seemed to avoid many questions, and when pressed, stated a few times, as a reply "For reasons of security, I will not be going into the full analysis of what occurred" When asked about the charges, the Chief replied that the charges have not been dropped, and that a trial will be scheduled. Later on in the Interview, she left us with this jewel "If you are hurt by metas, come talk to me."
We also spoke with Glacier's Defense Council, only identifying herself as 'Clarity', who had much to say... including "So we're going to have a police force that can yank any citizen off the street, trump up a couple charges, and beat them to death for the fun of it? That doesn't sound like any sort of civilized society to me" and "I think everyone should be a little frightened of this... this was a metahuman left in this state. If these acts had been done on a normal human it would likely have been a delivery to the morgue rather than the ER"
Mutant Mayhem --
Explosions in the sewers drew out officials to investigate last night, the noise seemingly caused by someone's science experiments attacking homeless living below ground many were killed at the fight, and the attackers were not entirely dealt with.
Condiment Kid Relishes a short lived comeback--
Condiment Kid was involved in a brawl in the bowling alley early this week, where he ended up in a jam, flashed his hot dog at the crowd, and had his meatballs targeted more than once... guess he just couldn't cut the mustard. He was taken into custody, where a well seasoned officer would most likely pepper him with questions.

Latest update on the Protectorate cheesecake calendar.. Hell Guard, Chief of the Protectorate claims she doesn't know anything about the calender, while in a cryptic remark had this to say "guess if I were to choose a cheesecake, I'd go with Oreo cream since it's a nice mix of chocolate and creme and works well in a cheesecake" if we read between the lines, chocolate and cream... sounds like she will be Miss February, as it is the month of chocolates, and may actually be taking a milk bath! How about that for a shot to stare at all month?
