Holder: Civilian courts best to try terror cases


With guilty people like Casey Anthony and OJ Simpson getting off scotch free I somehow don’t think I want deadly terrorists in the hands of our crazy system.
Check it out:

Attorney General Eric Holder says those who argue that civilian courts are incapable of handling terrorism cases “are simply wrong.”

He says that after Sept. 11, members of Congress “placed unwise and unwarranted” restrictions on where certain suspected terrorists could be held, charged and prosecuted.

In the wake of the Boston Marathon bombings, Holder says “many of these tired and meritless political arguments” about the effectiveness of civilian courts have come up again.

On Saturday, he told law school graduates of the University of California, Berkeley, that federal courts have shown a “robust ability to stop terrorists and collect intelligence,” and he contends that any move to limit their use would be counterproductive.
