Notes on the 1st Week of Trial for the NATO 3

The first week in the Trial of the NATO 3 concluded on Friday and it seems that they case they have is not that strong. The evidence was weak, and mostly pointed to coercion on the undercovers’ behalf. Publicly, the NATO 3 have been demonized for their attempted use of Molotov cocktails, however it’s been revealed that these were only brought up because of suggestion and encouragement by Gloves (one of the undercovers).

The state also used a GPS tracking device that had been installed in the car of Brian ‘Jacob’ Church (one of the defendants) as evidence of searching out targets downtown, and yet admitted that the tracking device does not show who was in the car at specific times or why the car was in motion.
