15th July 2006

I know that I'm about to upset our "dear" USA people but you know what? I beginning not to worry about that.

How can any civilised country shackle people being taken to court to face trial in the way that the "NatWest Three" were shackled today as shown in photographs in the English press?

These people, according to the system (English and Welsh Law) that the USA bases it's system on are presumed innocent until proven guilty; how would the pictures influence any elected jury? Would they tend to think "these people must be really dangerous to be shackled in such a manner therefore they must have done something wrong"?

I do think that given the USA is trying via both peaceful and aggressive means to democratise the World and "civilise" it that it is incumbent upon the USA to treat people within it's jurisdication in a civil manner. The more especially when those people have been extradited under a one way only treaty with the USA's most staunch ally.

Check tomorrow to see what pissed me of since this blog
