Like any institution...

...a grand jury can be corrupted, sure. But I'd rather have a system which includes juries than a system which does not, all else being equal. And anyway, my main point was simply that this girl is not, as far as I can tell, being treated especially unfairly. It's not like they detained her without trial, or shipped her off to some Egyptian prison to be "interrogated." She's experiencing the legal system in its usual operation. And also, it sounds like she's being investigated for actual crimes: i.e. destruction of property.
