Oh goodie. A judge has determined that a Jose Padilla doesn’t have a right to a trial because he’s an enemy combatant.
So, riddle me this, Federal Court of Appeals. We live in a society that supposedly has this quant maxim of law “innocent until proven guilty”. You have thus made the determination that he is an enemy of the state, and is thus guilty of treason against the USA. However, if guilt of a Citizen can only be determined by a 12 member jury of his or her peers, then we have a good ole fashion catch 22 don’t we.
Are you telling me you wont’ give the man a trial because he’s guilty? Well hello fuck-tard, then try him and make it official. We have no problem putting OJ on the stand, or Clinton on the stand, or Michael Jackson on the stand… and yet we are scared of this one person with no power, fame, or money? Give me a break. Ya know he’s innocent, and you don’t want a media explosion in your face.
Doesn’t it make you feel all warm inside, that you too can be held without trial? Whatever happened to “due process of law?” You’re life is in the hands of a judge that was probably appointed by the same branch of government that is prosecuting you. Well my my my, that separation of powers idea doesn’t seem to be working anymore.
