Charlie Lynch was found guilty in a federal court today. He faces a minimum of five years in prison.

I blogged about the Charlie Lynch case here. Reason Hit and Run has an extensive coverage on the matter, which I highly recommend.

I don’t have much to say. It’s one of those deeply jarring events — so unjust and wrong that words are pretty nigh superfluous.

In the beginning of the last century, when my country was strugling for her independence, there were brave men and women who fought the good fight for all of us. Some of them went to prison, some died. Every war for freedom that has ever taken place has had its martyrs.

This is a war too, a war to end the most absurd war ever conceived. Charlie Lynch is not its first casualty, nor will he be the last. However, Charlie’s suffering will not be in vain, for every miscarriage of justice they commit strengthens our cause. In the end, the forces of reason and freedom will win, as they eventually must.
