Can the American government be trusted to respect habeus corpus in difficult times?

  • It is each court's job.

    Yes, the American government can be trusted to respect habeus corpus in difficult times, because we learned our lessons from the Japanese internment camps in WWII. We know how terrible that was now. We will not keep anyone. It is up to each individual judge and court to make sure that habeus corpus is respected.

  • The American government

    The American government can be trusted to respect habeus corpus in difficult times. The government will be reliable when working with other countries during this time because they do not want to create more problems then need be for our county to have to deal with. So yes the governemt can be trusted.

  • Look At Our History

    During the Civil War, Abraham Lincoln suspended habeas corpus for people suspected of aiding the Confederates. We also detained Japanese-Americans out of fear during World War II. In the War on Terror, Guantanamo Bay is more or less the place where habeas corpus goes to die. The Supreme Court tried to keep us in check with Lincoln and Bush, but neither attempt worked. Congress and the President passed laws to limit the Supreme Court's habeas corpus jurisdiction both times. Lincoln even tried to have the Chief Justice arrested for going against him.

  • No, America will throw out habeus corpus if it needs.

    No, the American government does not care about the rights of anyone when it comes to difficult times, and they've shown that time after time again. I only hope that truly difficult times never arise because, if they do, we'll all be subject to the atrocities that our government has become accustomed to doing.

  • I Don't Think So

    I do not believe the American government can be trusted with much, especially not habeus corpus in difficult times. I believe many American citizens are coming to understand the threat our government poses to our own freedom. We realizes we are not as protected as we would like to be.
