And these are the people who are protecting our country? Scary

This is one of the cases where I'd sincerely wish that the press would have declined to post this story...

In my view of the world, no man of right mind would allow himself to be in the position that this defendant was claimed to be found.

This guy needs some care from the country that he is defending along with the opportunity for a fair trial.
