Still, how powerful do you think the police mages are? It's not like real world, where more people=more weapons=better chance of winning. If a mage guild hoes rouge, I'm sure even the police force would be at a loss and needed to recruit another guild or two for a somehow fair chance. Otherwise, if the police mages were that powerful, why wouldn't they compete in the tourney or... something? Fiore is clearly strongly dependent on the goodwill of the guilds.

He killed a cat. Talking cat, but still a cat. Yes it wasn't nice but in response Sting killed a man. And not an ordinary man - a leader of strongest guild in Fiore - so he was somehow influential. Killed in a town full of Rune Knights - a magic police force. No, I don't think he will be able to escape it in any legal way.
Are you seriously implying an Exceed, a talking, sensitive, intelligent cat is inferior to a human in a legal sense? You're kidding, right? Yeah, what Rogue did was not okay but it can be justified. And it wasn't worse than what GM did. Cold blooded murder against... well... kind of revenge or possibly self-defense.
