Prosecutors Persist in Retrying Liberty 6

Two mistrials due to deadlocked juries. Slim evidence. An unconvincing case. But the government won't give up on the Liberty 7 —> 6. Details, such as they are, at Southern District of Florida Blog: Liberty City to be tried a third time.

I never thought the prosecution on the most serious charges should have been brought in the first place, so you'll not be surprised to know I think this is a travesty of justice.

It couldn't possibly have anything to do with the great fuss and froth this administration originally made about its giant terrorism bust, could it? Which turned out to be a bust.

There are very very few cases that deserve to be brought again after two mistrials due to deadlocked juries (as opposed to witness tampering, error, or something else). There is simply no way at all that this case is one of them.

    May I be so bold as to assume that they have been in custody for this entire time?

    Or perhaps that would be presumptuous. They are ‘terrorists’, after all.
