American Samizdat

Monday, October 16, 2006. *
A US civil rights lawyer Lynne Stewart convicted of aiding terrorism by passing messages from a jailed client to his followers has been imprisoned for 28 months.
The rest of us won't get anything like the consideration Lynne Stewart got. She had an extraordinary support system. 1100 letters written to the judge. Judge was one of the few who shouldn't be thrown off the bench & he didn't buy any of the govt. garbage. She faced 30 yrs. in jail, and could have been thrown in the slammer instantly. She's still out on bail, can travel etc.

I guess we can expect more of this. At least she had a trial, something they don't have to afford us anymore, as of tomorrow anyway.
