Now It's The Liberty City Six

After a joke of a federal trial, a beleaguered federal jury acquitted one member of the Liberty City Seven and failed to reach a verdict on the others (here's the Sentinel version and Herald story).

Now Judge Joan Lenard has called for a new trial on January 7. Seriously, we're going to start this farce up again in three weeks? Is the jury going to hear the truth about the informants this time?

Government, do us all a favor and give it a rest. The people have spoken: Your case isn't convincing. Go catch some real terrorists and put this sad saga behind you.
