300. Thanks!

Unfortunately it seems a lot of people don't care about the constitution, due process, or principles, when the result doesn't meet their media-driven preconceptions. I for one am glad she was judged by a sequestered jury who cared about following the law and our most basic principles above some right-wing-style drive to be seen as "tough on crime". I'm afraid that with even the people on DU not holding such basic things as sacred, we'll soon see the day where it's ok to keep accused terrorists locked up forever because hey, the government says they're guilty based on a small amount of circumstantial evidence, and they look/act "suspicious" (which is effectively little less than this case boiled down to)
