Terrorists are not Americans

Mark Easley | Thursday, November 19, 2009

 American Civil Liberties are for Americans.

Terrorists who have commited acts of war against the United States should not be protected by our sacred rights. No American should have to be assigned to defend the likes of those evil men, and no city (especially the place of victimization) should have to waste precious time and resources trying to get proper justice served. In fact, it is digusting. Terrorists demote themselves to second class citizens the moment they carry out their plans, and we should treat them accordingly. They had no respect for human life or human rights as a combatant, so why should we respect theirs? Justice given should be the justice served.
