Despite damming photographic evidence Judge Dredd has been cleared of two counts of murder. Presenting the head of a robotic replica directly to the Council of Five as proof he had been framed Dredd was acquitted by Chief Judge Goodman.
Why and who perpetrated this incident is still unclear but speculation is rife that it was an inside job.
Dredd was heard to say “You came after my head – instead I got yours.”
