Cecily McMillan Conviction A Travesty of Justice

Pussy Riot Supports Cecily McMillan
This is not justice.
Cecily McMillan was on Monday found guilty of deliberately elbowing officer Grantley Bovell in the face, as he led her out of a protest in March 2012. She was convicted of second-degree assault, a felony, and faces up to seven years in prison. She was denied bail and is being detained at Riker's Island jail. However, nine of the 12 jurors who unanimously reached the verdict have since taken the unusual step of writing to Judge Ronald Zweibel to request that he not give her a prison sentence on 19 May…

Hard to believe this is what passes for justice in NYC.  It is a travesty.
