"Judge Releases Eight Americans jailed in Haiti" by Simon Romero and Ian Urbina from the New York Times.

In this article it explains how a judge in Haiti has ordered the release of eight of the ten Americans who have been in jail; charged with child abduction. The other two remaining American prisoners were kept in jail for further questioning. This is proving some Americans are taking matters, in Haiti, into their own hands. Some of the American people are going about the Haiti chaos in the wrong perspective. This is important to know about because Haiti is recovering slowly from the disastrous earthquakes and children are being relocated by few American citizens in an attempt to be heroes. Haiti needs more awareness from the American people, but the people also should not be taking matters into their own hands and making an attempt to "rescue" the Haitian children.
