Kristen Miller replied to Travis Powell's discussion Punctuation

Kristen Miller commented on Travis Powell's blog post How Stuff Works: How Habeas Corpus Works
"This talk about Habeas Corpus was really interesting I had never heard of it until now. From what I understand Habeas Corpus is the rights to a speedy trial and a fair trial. A really good example they used was during World War 2 when the Japanese…"
