Interesting to see various perspectives. I for one am inclined to put the US judicial system into question. Not about double jeopardy. As for bailing, according to Manichi, California state law says you have not right to bail when the alleged crime is serious. What happens to "innocent until proved guilty"? As for the warrant, in Japan the prosecutors need to renew it to prevent the abuse of power. As for conspiracy, it is still being discussed in Japan, the proposal to enact it was rejected once because it is too easy for the power to abuse it. Provided there is a new evidence, unless it is decisive, if he turns out to be guilty, it'll show how roughly a person can be convicted in the US, which is against the spirit of the principle "innocent until proved guilty and will be likely to lead the false conviction. I consider dialogue between J and NJ important. Show me the reason if you block my comment.
