Okay, that might be a bit of hyperbole. Canadian author Peter Watts was found guilty of resisting arrest while returning to Canada in December. He faces a felony charge and up to two years in prison. As far as I can tell, he’s only guilty on a technicality, but I’m not a lawyer. There are plenty of more comprehensive articles on the net.
I’d like to extend my condoloences to Peter, who handled the jury’s decision very well, all things considered. I hope he recieves leniency. A suspended sentence would probably the best we can hope for.
God bless America.
