Comment: The Constitution

(See in situ)

The Constitution

Are you stupid? Read what you just posted. The writ of habeas corpus can *only* be suspended when either the nation is being invaded or a full blown rebellion is occuring. BOTH of those occasions are war times, and then only when armies are actually on national soil, and then the power to suspend habeas corpus isn't garaunteed as it still has to be occasioned for the need of public safety. So not even invasion and armed rebellion is quite enough justification by themselves. Rights to trial by jury, speedy trial, evidence, etc are all right protected by the Constitution as well. Rand's amendment to the NDAA 2011 merely reaffirms those for US citizens. It doesn't even go nearly as far as The Constitution which grants it to every person. Do yourself a favor. Go read The Constitution.
