\”David\’s detention was unlawful and inexcusable. He was detained under a law that violates any principle of fairness and his detention shows how the law can be abused for petty vindictive reasons.
How can being detained under a law be unlawful?
I could understand unfair, or that the law itself violates human rights, all that sort of stuff. But if a law expressly says that they can do this something (which it does) how can that be unlawful?
