The supreme court decision giving inmates of Guantanamo prison the right to challenge their detention in American court room is the correct one. One might argue that this decision will undermine America’s ability to fight the war on terror but the fact is that by being in Guantanamo they inmates were already on American territory so they do have the right to American court room.

They are foreigners,terrorist and thugs. why this right? Well again Guantanamo is American territory because America is paying the lease in order to use it. The bush administration tried to used the circumstances and the fact they are foreigners to justify their detection and refused to allow access to American court room. But i will state this fact for you,this is not the first time foreigners have been given the opportunity to defend themselves in American court rooms. Second fact,almost all of these people granted the right to American court rooms which by the way have been going on for years were foreign terrorist thugs who killed people for a living, so by saying these inmates at “Gitmo” cannot use it is a double standard.

The Supreme court decision,the correct one again because the bush administration cannot pick and choose which laws they want to follow. Many of us will not agree on this but many people didn’t agree with Brown vs. board of education, roe vs. wade and many other decisions that have shaped this country. We need to look at the issues objectively and without the cockeye.

In times of crisis the constitution still have to be followed. If you give up your freedoms in the name of security, you will get neither.

According to a CNN report,  The state of Texas should not have removed children from a polygamist sect’s ranch because it didn’t prove that they were in “imminent danger,” an appeals court ruled Thursday.

In the ruling, a three-judge panel did not order that the children be returned to their families on the Yearning for Zion Ranch in Eldorado, Texas.

Instead, the judges gave the lower court 10 days to vacate an order placing the children in state custody.

Damn well what the %^$# just happened? Maybe they judges are deaf because why couldn’t they hear the part about pregnant teens? Idiots, damn idiots I tell you…damn…that all for now because I really need a drink to relieve me of this stressful situation.

 If you were surprised, then you are dilusional. Why can’t you get it through your head, the police is always right. It doesn’t matter whether or not they jump out of the bush and you didn’t hear them. You’re supposed to know  who they are even if they didn’t say so and your supposed to respect authority or you are going to get shot. In the supreme court case of VIRGINIA V. MOORE, http://www.supremecourtus.gov/opinions/07pdf/06-1082.pdf this result is very troubling for our future!!! Now the Sean bell case i can assure you is not going to go over well. Firstly in my humble position, why does it take 50 shots to stop a car? maybe i need to go back to college to equip myself better so that i can answer that question. Secondly, why did the principal shooter had to reload his gun, wow he reloaded his gun-stunning? no, not when you have to stop a blackman.

Some people are waiting for something, some people are expecting violence and something to put on t.v, how sad,how sad that it have come to this. I can assure you that louis Farakhan will be mobilizing people, look what the white man have done again, the hateful/racist white man. And not forgeting Al Sharpton gets more airtime. I know for sure it is not over!! something will be done and it will be on television. I will be there waiting as the other white folks glue to the television to see what hell will breaks loose. Another riot?

Rozita Swinton 

The moment i heard about the raid something struck me as odd. The authorities said that they recieved a phone call from a 16 year old saying that she had been abused etc etc. This was the reason why they raided the place. Now CNN is reporting that the phone call was a hoax by a black woman. The authories said they are not going to persecute the woman because they have evidence of crimes committed in the compound. See link–> http://www.cnn.com/2008/US/04/18/polygamy.fri/index.html?iref=newssearch The woman, Rozita Swinton of Colorado Springs, colorado is in custody for making a false report to authories in an unrelated case. This reminds of my law class when my profesor said, if something is true then it is not a lie. Obviously some people are praising this woman because they claim Warren Jeff and his church are racists. Breaking up hundreds of siblings and people you call family doesn’t make me happy. I wonder, what would jesus do?
