Finally, al-Arian is Released

I have followed this case from the very beginning, a case which has many implications for all citizens concerning undue detention because of certain political leanings.

5 and a half years of imprisonment ... several years after he was acquitted on all 17 charges by a jury of his peers ... after being wrongfully imprisoned with no charges against him and 2 hunger strikes he is released.

Regardless of the man's politics, regardless of his background, how does this case comment on our judicial system? Very poorly I am afraid.

And what about this guy's lost time? How could he made whole by this ordeal?

Who's next? Me or you?
