Prolonged Detention: The Constitution's Death Blow

Watch this.

Preventative Detention. A separate "legal regime" to ensure the new system works.

Under this new "law" (and I use that word in the absolute very, very loosely), you can be imprisoned solely on the theory that you might commit a crimes. There will be no trial, because there has been no crime committed. You can remain incarcerated indefinitely, for having done nothing. Only because some bureaucrat somewhere feels that you might be a threat.

Are you scared yet? I'm terrified.
