How can cartoonist Matt Davies compare incarceration in the United States with incarceration in Cuba [Opinion, July 22]?
Many arrests in Cuba result from peaceful political dissent, and those arrested have no recourse to legal representation, fair trials or other civil rights. Family and friends visiting prisoners here are not harassed or beaten up -- unlike the Ladies in White in Cuba, a group of wives and female relatives of jailed dissidents.
There have been hundreds of arrests of dissidents in Cuba without charges or probable cause. And there is no attempt in Cuba to change this situation, nor media coverage of abuses, like in the United States.
