American Justice : Due Process of Law


America has set new precedence for Due Process. As we move further and further away from the Constitution of the United States, we move further and further away from the American Dream.

Traditionally Due Process: A fundamental, constitutional guarantee that all legal proceedings will be fair and that one will be given notice of the proceedings and an opportunity to be heard before the government acts to take away one’s life, liberty, or property. Also, a constitutional guarantee that a law shall not be unreasonable, Arbitrary, or capricious. : has been usurped.

Under the George W. Bush Presidency, the Patriot Act ended all of the personal freedoms we so much enjoyed as a society. That snowball has now turned into a full on avalanche.

In today’s news : U.S. missiles kill 4 suspected militants in Pakistan, was not met with much opposition. Typical Americans only read headlines, so you can be sure that 90% of America read this story headline and said, “Great…we killed more terrorists”.

Wrong.

For those of us who have read the story, the horror of our new definition of “Due Process of Law” is now quite evident. As the story states, “The specific identities of the suspected militants were not known, but the town is a stronghold of the Haqqani network.”

To put this in other words……Because they were wearing traditional Muslim clothing, and because they were in this town, they are hereby sentenced to death by the American military.

American Due process is now : Capital Punishment by Association as seen in this example.

This is identical to a warlord legal system where if you look at the warlord the wrong way he shoots you in the face. In the case of the US Government, these men were in the wrong place so we shot them in the ass with a missile.

Just documenting the backslide of my great country. Watching our freedoms disappear and the dictatorship of large corporations begin. Someone in some large corporation made more than $50,000 from this murder. Don’t you think that they like the new definition of Due Process? Drones are high profit centers for America’s corporations. They shoot very expensive munitions. They are loving this “shoot everything that moves” war.
