Speedy trials

Ordinarily,  a sports clip wouldn't catch my attention.  But this one did because in France,  you can apparently get arrested and convicted in a week.  Why can't we do that?

http://sports.yahoo.com/news/latest-tomas-rosicky-scan-thigh-injury-091433186--sow.html The Latest: 20 Russian soccer fans deported from France

A group of 20 Russian soccer fans have been deported from France, leaving on a flight to Moscow after French authorities accused them of being involved in hooliganism.

The 20 were part of a larger group of Russians who were detained by French authorities on Tuesday following violent disorder around England's 1-1 draw with Russia last Saturday.

Three others were convicted of offenses related to the violence and sentenced to prison terms of between one and two years
