Now while I think the long arm of the law should get the Lakeland 8 into a head lock and give them all a noogie. But life sentences? Seems a bit excessive. (<----Understatement of the month.)
But what I want to know is...where's Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton? There should be a march or something to answer this injustice!
An update on the Olympic protests: Just days after IOC President Jacques Rogge used the word crisis to describe the effect of the torch protests, he admits that they still won't (can't?) do anything about Tibet.
Asked specifically whether he would encourage China to open dialogue on Tibet, Rogge said that was "a political matter in which the IOC cannot enter."Which just goes to show you the limits of symbolic gestures.
"This is a sovereign matter for China to decide," he said.
