Not just no, but OH HELL NO!!!

The Justice Department has quietly asked Congress for the ability to ask chief judges to detain people indefinitely without trial during emergencies — part of a push for new powers that comes as the novel coronavirus spreads throughout the United States.

No, no, no. This bullshit is just that – bullshit. Not only is it so unconstitutional it’s not funny, but there’s just too many possibilities for abuse of power. Hell, the whole thing is an abuse of power from start to finish.

Not on good terms with your local sheriff, Chief of Police or neighborhood cop? How about disagreeing with the cop that pulled you over? Off to the jailhouse with you for a few months. See ya, wouldn’t wanna be ya.

I was reading just about a week ago that Tennessee is suspending jury trials HERE because of this Chinese Flu deal and was wondering how that was going to affect somebody that was arrested and chose a jury trial, then didn’t waive his Right to a speedy trial.
Looks like I got my answer.

    Never miss a chance to capitalize on a disaster. That was supposed to be just a Democrat saying. But we know that there is no difference between Democrats and Republicans. They both want the same thing. Power.

  2. WDS says:

    Once instituted (as was the NDAA/Patriot Act) this shit will be forever expanded and never rescinded by the UniParty.

    The Bastille was stormed, the prisoners released, and the prison dismantled stone by stone because the French rulers thought this was a good idea.

    Also free shaves from the National Razor.

    I think that actions such as these – asking for indefinite detention powers, suspending jury trials, etc. – are counter-productive, because it brings us closer to the day when the public says “Hell, No!” to any and all police activities. Someone is going to get arrested for demanding police stop violating Rights, and will fester and boil in the jail. After they get out, though . . . The smart ones will reach out and touch long distance. Only those overcome by emotion will insist on close-up and personal encounters.

      CarlS, can you think of any major nation that has managed to reverse the march toward totalitarianism, I cant. I’m hoping someone can point to something that will give me hope that this can be reversed.

        The Soviet Union, East Germany, Poland. Granted, they all bottomed out for a few decades first.

        At this point the Onion is probably the more reliable news source.

        • enn ess says:

          “The Onion”, maybe, maybe knot, have any semblance of what you could consider a “news source”. But if all else fails, at least you could use it when your asswipe runs out…..

      How’s this? took all of 4 sec’s to type: DOJ suggests judges allow indefinite incarceration

    • Mygirl says:

      This is a bullshit article from Politico. They make claims about ‘letters and documents’ but they publish not one thing relating to those letters and documents. Besides which, the government ALREADY HAS the ‘right’ to detain you without trial, charges, legal counsel and said detention can be indefinite. It’s called the NDAA, the Patriot Act, the AUMF and another one I can’t think of off the top of my head.
      Getting freaked about this now? Go back to 9-11 when you should have freaked out.

    I would not want to be on a jury right now. I’d pay a doctor for an excuse if necessary.

  7. Sanders says:

    Politico is about as reliable as the National Enquirer or CNN.

  8. Gordon says:

    We are seeing many infringements on liberty in the name of “security”. Curfews, not allowed into the courthouse, can’t buy weapons to defend yourself or liquor to just get drunk on. They will use this as an excuse to tighten up on freedoms and all too many will go along with it for the promise of a $1200 check and a case of out-of-date MRE’s.

  9. Sedition says:

    This shit will lead to, and rightfully so, shootings against .gov.
    Between this and the likely “papers please” martial law that could be upcoming, shit’s gonna get real.

    Getting close to time to mix up a batch of shit-show.

  10. CC says:

    It hasn’t been this administrations DOJ, EVER.
    IT’s still Jugear’s DOJ.

    Zero Hedge post. I trust The Burning Platform more than Zero Hedge. So here’s TBP’s post.

    “If you love wealth more than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, depart from us in peace. We ask not your counsel nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains rest lightly upon you and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen .” – Samuel Adams

      The Beer Guy said all that?? Wow! Maybe his beer makes ya smart,huh? Hell, I can’t even afford the tall price that is asked for the Mexican Beer Virus beer.

  13. Buddha says:

    On a related note, the “patriot act” was due to expire March 15th. I have heard no mention of it getting extended, nor can I find anything online. Anyone here have an update? Thanks

    If they try that crap here…they’ll experience a REALLY BAD day.
