While I'm sorry that Mr. Cruz was wrongfully imprisoned, and thus his rights were infringed upon, I am not totally sorry this happened. Perhaps we should all take a look at Mr. Cruz's criminal history. I assure you, it is extensive. I feel a little safer knowing that this man was not roaming the streets of Bladen County for fifteen months. Even now, Mr. Cruz still has charges pending against him from Driving While Impaired, Reckless Driving, and No Operator's License. YES, I KNOW HE SHOULD NOT HAVE BEEN IN JAIL FOR A CRIME HE DIDN'T COMMIT. But chances are, if it wasn't this, he would have been in there for something else.
