Because freedom can't protect itself
I recently came accross your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I dont know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog.
Agree 150%. And while we're at it, maybe do something about solitary confinement, both on and off of death row. If a thirty day limit on close confinement is good enough for the Geneva Conventions, it should be good enough for American prisons, too.
Actually, we wouldn't be having such an uphill battle fighting off torture if our own prisons and immigrant detention facilities didn't soften the public up on abuse.
One more infrastructure that's falling apart - as our bridges go, so goes our rule of law. Who's to say when neglect finally decays into cruelty.
It is true. Unless you have a really good lawyer you could be sent up the river. Some in the field of law and order do not care who you represent God or any other cause. Up the river you could go.>>>My question is, why do we allow these types of individuals in these jobs? Is it because they are smart? Or is it because jobs needs filling and we can not do any better? What is it?
