A call for reason and fairness in the case of
U.S. vs. Walter Anderson

"No nation on earth goes to such lengths or takes such pains to provide safeguards as we do, once an accused person is called
before the bar of justice and until his case is completed." – Chief Justice Warren E. Burger, from a 1967 speech

"The Government. Serving and protecting faithfully.

Until the evil in those who wield power deem the probability of their crimes being discovered small enough to abuse their positions for personal gain. Or, worse, they're blinded by ambition.

If you've never been the target of a government conspiracy, you can't truly comprehend the frustration - and, ultimately, the fear - involved. If you have, you know that despite your innocence, you're very vulnerable. Because the government can do almost anything it wants in its pursuit of you - legal or not. And you can do almost nothing to stop it."

UPDATE: On July 13th, 2006, Mr. Stanchef appeared in court, and was finally released after more than 45 days in  jail for simply drinking a beer in public. We do not believe that anybody in the criminal justice system ever apologized for this gross miscarriage of justice.

Correction: In the published Jan/Dec op-ed pieces (see links below), it was stated that Walt was a "lifelong resident" of the Washington, DC area. According to Walt and his attorneys, this is "technically" incorrect, as between 1994 and 1998, for example, he spent more time in Europe working with Esprit Telecom, and therefore less than the 183 day minimum annual residency requirement for DC. He has, however, certainly spent most of his life in that area and maintains strong business, personal and familial connections. The columnist regrets the error.
