“Mr. El Halabi, who has been detained since June, was officially charged Thursday at a court in BeershebaThe benefits of being an American pop up all around us and we don’t even think about it. It is now August. He was “detained” in June. We have at least a month of incarceration with no charges being filed. It could have been two months. The family claim they have not been able to visit him but he does have a lawyer. In theory this could not happen in the United States. The Constitution declares that we are supposed to be arraigned and charged with a specific crime or set free. In most states that must happen in a few days, not months.
So be glad you have a lot of rights that are guaranteed by the Constitution even when you are not paying any attention.
