Only in the U.S. Attorney arrested for representing client. Detention without trial a human rights violation.

The attorney is Michelle MacDonald who was ordered by Judge David KNUTSON to complete the Grazzini-Rucki custody case in Minnesota while in handcuffs and with no client present. Then Ms. MacDonald was jailed for another 36 hours. The actual arrest is captured in the video below. The United States engaged in sanctions against South Africa, during the Apartheid years, for exactly this type of practice as it declared detention without trial practices a human rights violation. Yet the United States daily violates the human rights of its own citizens and attorneys who represent their clients.
