Again. he's a United States citizen. You go down a very VERY slippery slope if our government decides when to pick and choose taking away our rights. And no.. you're rights as an American citizen don't magically disappear even if you kill people in the name of Islam.

Now.. if he was here on a visa, that would be a totally different story.
This... It was the right call.
And I truly don't think anyone truly thinks the guy shouldn't have a trial... I think they're just fed up with the justice system and even more so with the penal system.
