Because freedom can't protect itself
Padilla was broken down psychologically until he would plead guilty. The whole thing is such a travesty of justice. The idea that the executive branch can lock up anyone indefinitely with no charge or trial - I don't think this should be allowed even for non-citizens. The right to a fair trial, to counsel, to face your accusers and cross-examine them, these are fundamental human rights.
God does not belong in the US. The day religion is extinct, is the day man will truly spread his wings and prosper. Habeas corpus must be maintained and the right to trial must be presented to all US citizens. This is an abomination to the US legal system.
Because god believes in unjustified torture without due process and is against human rights. Yep.
fuck off person above me
a helpful christian
Leave god in the USA? How can something that doesn't exist be left anywhere?
Yes, because god was SO good to our friend Mister Padilla. Grow a brain cell. Half the people who are responsible for this shit sleep soundly at night and go to church on Sundays. Yes the government is full of corruption but I hardly think "leaving god in the USA" is going to do anything to help.
Thank you, Anonymous, for that entirely on-topic and not-at-all-insane-sounding comment.
"THE ACLU NEEDS TO LEAVE GOD IN THE U.S.A AND THROW OBAMA AND THE REST OF THE THIEVES IN D.C OUT"
Very good. Exactly what is written in our constitution.
Thank you ACLU for your undying patriotism and for protecting my civil liberties for so many years.
Dear first post,
You are an idiot
That is all.
Anyway, what can we do to help Jose?
What is this I don't even
The all caps commenter needs to stop yelling and start thinking quietly in a library about the issues instead of simply accepting what they have heard at church and on fox at face value.
I am actually for throwing the previous write out and keeping the ACLU, Obama and the rest of those thieves in DC. BTW using all caps make you sound like a screaming lunatic.
I AGREE. BUT ALSO WE SHOULD NOT TORTURE PEOPLE. GOD WOULD FROWN. CAPS LOCK.
And in all seriousness thieves in D.C. is a big problem.
That was relevant...hR
Anonymous, you are a disgrace. Please crawl back to whatever shameless hole you came from.
God doesn't exist.
