This will make you angry.

Have you heard about the Kirstin Blaise Lobato trial yet? I found out about it years ago, and it has troubled me ever since. An 18-year old girl defended herself against a rapist. Because she had apparently struck him in the "groin area," a detective named Thomas Thowsen arrested her for the murder, mutilation, and sexual assault of a homeless man she had never met who had suffered a "groin injury" post-mortem.

Today, in testimony you can see on Court TV Extra, this detective could not even defend the reasons for why he had arrested her at all. We are attempting to rally both national and international support to ensure that she gets a fair trial this time around. Articles, websites, and wrongful conviction sites from Canada have not been enough to convince the world to give this young woman a fair trial. From previous blogs, to current ones - from international support to radio and national justice conferences, Kirstin has still not received the support, encouragement, and the justice that she deserves. Your voice *can* make a difference in her fight for justice.
