Free Jude Shao - An American Unjustly Imprisoned in China: "Jude Shao, an American citizen, is unjustly held in Shanghai Qing Pu prison after wrongly being convicted for Tax Evasion and falsely issuing VAT invoices. He is serving a 16-year sentence. "

A friend mailed me the LA Times article on this man. I don't know if any of the major blogs happened to notice this story, but I think it deserves some attention. I'm as big a proponent of free-trade as you'll find, but in our efforts to open up trade with China, we can't moderate our stance on their treatment of their citizens, or as it turns out, their treatment of OUR citizens.
