Malaysian blogger in trouble

Raja Petra Kamaruddin has been arrested and detained for his blogging. He supposedly criticized the Malaysian government as well as "insulting" Islam. No trial dates have been scheduled for him, meaning he must wait two years in jail before anything happens. They detained him without any official charge. A little unfair?

This is a scary thing for any upcoming journalists. But remember, we live in the United States. We are lucky we can speak our mind on many issues, to a certain extent.

For a more detailed interpretation of his "charges" visit and search Raja Petra Kamaruddin.
