What's being said

  • Common Sense

    When the government limits the amount of access by such a defendant to his attorneys and the public and vice-versa, it only causes suspicions about the government's case. If everything that is currently in the public domain already is true, the government's (prison's) absurd controls can only flame incendiary and conspiracy theories that undermine our system of justice and the trust in our system of justice held by the average citizen. Wise up and stop being so mean-spirited Warden and Federal Prosecutor. The guy doesn't have much time left anyway. Keep it all clean and wide open. Don't be jerks that raise doubts.
