More Cory Maye stuff

Radley Balko has been tireless on the case of Cory Maye. Just go to his blog to check out all the good work. I find this post documenting the heavy-handed practices of the local narcotics force particularly interesting -- Balko is finding more instances of injustice -- a man was held for the better part of a year after a raid that found nothing but an unused bong and a bottle of vodka and then released without charges (or explanations)..

I also found it quite affecting to read a letter Cory Maye wrote to his lawyer and pictures of his family -- his son and daughter are growing up quickly.
