Cape Cod Guantanamo?

Federal charges dropped against N.J. man arrested at Bush estate
June 1, 2007

PORTLAND, Maine --Federal charges are being dropped against a New Jersey man who spent more than four years in custody following his arrest near the Bush family estate in Kennebunkport.

Theodore Miller approached Secret Service agents on Sept. 30, 2002, outside the home of former President George H.W. Bush to complain that he was being followed. He also said he wanted to talk to the president about a disability claim.

Miller was taken to the Kennebunkport police station, where a previous commitment to a mental hospital and two boxes of shotgun shells in his truck were enough to charge Miller with violating federal gun laws.

Miller, now 40, found himself in what his lawyer described as a legal "black hole" for more than four years because he was considered too ill to stand trial but he refused to cooperate with mental health professionals.

4 years? Four freaking years for mental incompetence?

This looks to me like a liberal dose of our stoopid legal system with a huge dollop of "You scared the Bush" on top.

What a horrible miscarriage of justice.

He's lucky he didn't end up in Guantanamo, poor guy.

If mental illness will get your four years in jail, Bush should get least.
