The arrest and conviction of Muslims on flimsy conspiracy charges often instigated by FBI informants reveals the spreading corruption in the American legal system.
“After 9/11/2001 the Bush/Obama administrations have constructed an American Police State using Arabs and Muslims as their pretexts and scapegoats,” says Francis Boyle, distinguished international legal authority and professor of law at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. “It is reminiscent of the Nazi government’s persecution of the German Jews before the outbreak of World War II. Arabs and Muslims have become the New Jews in Police State America that is now slouching towards a military dictatorship and World War III.”
The unlucky Muslim prisoners may be held illegally for years, denying them their constitutional right to a speedy trial. During this detention period, they may be the victims of sophisticated torture techniques such as isolation. And they may be convicted by compliant judges who mete out stiff sentences utterly at variance with the alleged conspiracies plotted, much less actual crimes committed, if any.
