Go, Read: AAEC Statement On Musa Kart's Imprisonment

The AAEC's statement is here. It is indeed worth noting that we in the USA are closer to following the same path than we were ten years ago, although there's plenty of outrage to be had just on this specific case: it's wrong because it's wrong, not because of what it portends.

Another thing that's changed is the kind of international pressure that can be brought to bear. That changes with the political realities in other countries not Turkey. There was a long moment a long time ago when people thought Turkey's desire to interact with the west could lead to change; I don't know anyone who thinks that any longer. This is a horror-show for Kart, his friends and his family; any way this might go away is welcome.
