Some good news:
Jurors found humanitarian aid volunteer Scott Warren not guilty Wednesday of intentionally harboring and concealing two undocumented migrants from the Border Patrol in the remote Arizona desert.
Warren, a longtime volunteer with humanitarian aid group No More Deaths, faced up to 20 years in prison. It was his second trial stemming from his January 2018 arrest in Ajo, about 100 miles southwest of Phoenix.
The 12-person jury in Tucson took just more than two hours to reach a not guilty verdict, striking a blow to federal prosecutors who opted to retry Warren after the first trial ended in a hung jury in June.
“The government failed in its attempt to criminalize basic human kindness,” Warren told supporters outside the federal courthouse.
The bad news? We live in a country to racist and afraid that we charge citizens with felonies for feeding desperate people. And try them twice, just because we fucking can.
