Portland Lawyer ReleasedThe People's Republic of Seabrook Reports on an news item
A Portland lawyer arrested in connection with the Madrid terror attacks was set free Thursday after evidence pointed to another suspect.
The thing is that there was very little solid evidence to hold him in the first place. Not only hadn't he left the country for more than 10 years, he hadn't left the state of Oregon in 10 years. Apparently he was guilts only of being a Moslem convert. It wasn't untill the Spanish authorities found the fingerprint pointing to an Algerian living in Spain. Mayfield was arrested on a material witness warrant, under a statute that allows the government to hold a potential suspect without formally charging them. The statute carries a high-level of secrecy.
