your case thrown out of court but your butt thrown in jail as well.

But other than that, it's really troubling....

um, have you been off planet for the last 8 years or something?

No.  But I can distinguish between an American citizen and someone living in 
America who may be involved in terrorist activity.  And so can the courts.
