“New York Supreme Court Judge Rules Protesters Can Be Detained Indefinitely”
What the hell?
This particular situation seems complex. You can hold them for 24 hours without charge, but without being able to gather evidence, which you can't because it's fucking chaos, how do you charge them?
Maybe they should have said "1 month" .. there probably isn't enough evidence, but at least you can prevent rioters for continuing to rioting for 30 days and calm the situation.
@mewmew @Gargron I think in this instance .. it might. These aren't just riots. This is some CIA/COINTELPRO/Operating Mockingbird shit. Someone(s) are funding this .. it only takes a few people to light the match; and other useful idiots.
People are going opportunistic on this. Cities just want the violence to stop; so they're trying to stop everyone. Abraham Lincoln suspended Habeas Corpus in 1863 during the Civil War. There is precedence for suspending rights for order, even in America.
@Gargron yeah it’s massively fucked up, though I wonder if it’ll be upheld on appeal.
@Gargron 😅 😅 😅
@Gargron fucks sake...
@Gargron State judicial elections matter is the message sent here.
@Gargron "supreme court" doesn't mean the same thing in new york as it does in the rest of the english language, but, yes, it's fucked up for sure
@Gargron under laws passed after 9/11, terrorists are not entitled to the protections of the Constitution. This is how President Obama assassinated an American without him ever being charged, repatriated, or tried. This is why President Trump declared Antifa a "terrorist organization." They know damn well Antifa isn't an organization. That just gives them more leeway to arbitrarily revoke basic human rights.
@Gargron USA looks creepier and creepier
@Gargron This is one state from where I live. The seeds of fascism are bearing fruit.
@Gargron meaning? minimum sentence or maximum sentence or for life? you're paying for their everything in jail including healthcare
