Criminal justice system

There's a lot of outrage about the collapse of the Limerick murder trial in Dublin the other day. The Irish Times has a poll running on whether "you favour the use of the non-jury Special Criminal Court for gangland cases"? Nearly three quarters of respondents have said yes. I wonder how many of those are opposed to the US's use of Guantanamo Bay as a holding center for Al Qaeda operatives?
