At least one more person has laughed off Johnny Walker’s claims that he is not a flight risk:
U.S. Magistrate Judge W. Curtis Sewell found that John Walker Lindh, 20, “has every incentive to flee” because he is facing up to three life sentences plus 90 years if he is convicted of all 10 counts outlined in a grand jury indictment yesterday.
Sewell also noted that Lindh, who had not seen his parents for two years before his capture, has extremely weak ties to his family and this country. “While it has been stated . . . that the defendant is a loyal American, the evidence before the court belies that assertion,” Sewell said.
That is judge for ‘I fart in your general direction.’
