Does the killing of U.S. citizens suspected of terrorist ties without criminal proceedings violate constitutional law?

  • Yes in a large way

    If the person is a US citizen and they are killed for a crime without a fair trial then it is a clear breaking of the constitution. If you feel they should be killed then you need to change the constitution. To argue it doesn't break the constitution would be insane because anyone not given a fair trial is against the constitution

  • The killing of U.S. citizens suspected of terrorist ties without criminal proceedings does violate constitutional law.

    The killing of U.S. citizens suspected of terrorist ties without criminal proceedings does violate constitutional law. Everyone in the United States should be able to have a fair and just trial because that was what it was set up for. Killing people just because they are suspected of terrorism is wrong.

  • Completely Un-American In Every Way

    I believe if a United States citizen is killed because they are suspected of having terrorist ties and this happens without criminal proceedings, it clearly violates constitutional laws. This act would be completely un-American and I believe it would really display the downfall of the United States. Our criminal system is in poor standing as it is and fair trials are becoming almost impossible, given the system. To kill someone prior to trial wipes out everything in the justice system that is American and fair.

  • The killing of U.S. citizens suspected of terrorist ties without criminal proceedings does not violate constitutional law.

    Terrorists who are actively trying to kill innocent people have relinquished their rights as civilians, no matter what country they are from. The United States is justified in using military weapons, such as drones, to kill combatants who are on the field of battle. Civilian laws should not apply to military situations.

  • The constitution doesn't apply.

    No, the killing of U.S. citizens that are suspected of having terrorist ties does not violate the constitution, even without criminal proceedings, because the constitution does not apply to someone who chooses to engage in enemy combat with the United States. At that point, the person needs to be treated as an enemy, not a citizen with constitutional protections.
