Habeas Corpus (Latin for you should have the body) is the name of a legal action or writ by means of which detainees can seek relief from unlawful imprisonment. With that being said, I would like to remind you that this is not a right against unlawful arrest, but a right to be released from imprisonment after an arrest. Resisting arrest is a crime. You can only uphold Habeas Corpus after you have been detained.
To me, it always seems that guilty until proven innocent is the way it really is. If you are a suspect you are detained until you’re innocence can be proven. If that’s not the way it works can someone please fill me in.
After seeing a movie last night I had a revelation about our government, so I pounded away at the computer this morning doing research on many of the ways that we Americans have had to fight against our own government for our freedoms and fundamental rights.(This is all related, just stick with me here).
Some of these wars were fought to gain our freedom and it was clear that this is what these wars were about. There was no confusion to some wars as to what we were really fighting for. Once the wars start to become unclear as to why they are being fought, it is no longer about the Americans freedom, but is then over a need to control and have power. Since we have “earned” our right to be free, our battles have been against our own government to keep our freedom and fundamental rights as American citizens. I am doing research so I can present the facts on a later post.
The American Revolutionary War allowed the United States to gain it’s independence.
The Civil War between the North and South, abolished slavery and united this country as one.
World War II Originally Germany invaded Poland and somehow spilled onto America.
When we go into a country declaring war on them because they won’t give us something that they have, is that morally right?
Let’s see an example on smaller scale:
Your little sister wants something you have. You won’t let her have it. And you really have no valid reason for it, except you just don’t want to. Does that give the little sister the right to then go into your room and take it anyway? The little sister has justified it because she really needed it, but does that make it right?
I just don’t understand how killing people will bring about positive change. (oxymoron)
It seems to me that we have many issues to resolve as a country within itself. Is it condusive to America to focus so much on what everyone else is doing?
Two movies that I recommend are American History X and Pirate Radio. When watching these movies, look at the bigger picture. Tell me what you think.
