state to make it a felony to cooperate with Obama

Postby saxitoxin on Thu Jan 31, 2013 6:26 pm

A coalition of 12 Republicans and 12 Democrats in the Washington legislature introduced a bill today that would make it a felony for police officers in that state to assist federal troops in executing Obama's recently-enacted NDAA authority to arrest and indefinitely detain U.S. citizens without trial if he suspects them of disloyalty/terrorism.

http://apps.leg.wa.gov/billinfo/summary ... #documents

The full text ...

15 NEW SECTION. Sec. 4. A new section is added to chapter 42.20 RCW
16 to read as follows:
17 (1) No state or local official or employee, or agent of the state
18 of Washington, or employee of a corporation providing services to the
19 state of Washington, or member of the National Guard or Washington defense
20 forces acting in his or her capacity as a state or local official or
21 employee, or agent of the state of Washington, or employee of a
22 corporation providing services to the state of Washington, or member of
23 the National Guard or Washington defense forces, shall knowingly cooperate
24 with an investigation or detainment of a United States citizen or
25 lawful resident alien located within the United States of America by
26 the armed forces of the United States of America, except for (a) an
27 investigation or detainment by the United States Coast Guard when it is
28 not operating as a service in the navy, (b) an investigation or
29 detainment by National Guard units or Washington defense forces while under
30 the authority of the Governor of the state of Washington, or (c) an
31 internal investigation or detainment by the armed forces of the United
32 States of America of active duty members of the armed forces of the
33 United States of America.
34 (2) A violation of this section is a class C felony.

Hmmm...

I live in Florida, which is where the dudes supposedly trained for the 9/11 acts. If I understand it right, most of those were not citizens, but were legally here, legally taking their pilot training. So, what if someone had got wind of what they'd planned. Well, by then they'd probably learned enough to do what they planned... so deporting them as undesirable (revoking their visa) probably wouldn't have prevented what occurred. Maybe delayed it, maybe not.

Detaining them on suspicion would probably be the only thing that could prevent what occurred.

That makes me lean toward Obama.

Our rights, however, are to a speedy trial. I personally don't believe those rights of citizens of the United States should apply to non-citizens; so again, as far as those legally within the U.S. suspected of these sorts of things, I lean toward Obama.

Citizens, however, are covered under those rights, one of those, "the right to a fair trial" - as well as "speedy" although legal speed and my speed don't usually agree. That makes me lean toward "civil rights" so my tally at this point is 2 for Obama, 1 against.

Thing is, it's awfully hard to "prove" something that didn't happen yet. Who would they call as witnesses for the prosecution? I'm sure Bin Laden, when alive, would've willingly come over to testify that, "yup, he's one of mine," and so forth. So, what, we have to wait for these acts to occur before we act on them? Because if you don't detain the terrorists, the plans will be carried out, and unfortunately some of them succeed. So, that makes me lean Obama again.

Tally is now 3 against 1, for Obama.

Except, it's not really "for Obama." See, the legislature "Obama" is operating under to detain etc. etc. stems from Bush, not Obama. Bush's regime started Gitmo, Bush's regime started the detaining without trial, Bush's regime started the telephone tapping without warrant.

Obama wasn't "for" all that. If you recall, Obama had wanted to close Gitmo and bring the folks that committed the acts to trial but no one seemed to wish to cooperate with that, for fear of further reprisal from terrorists and whatever other reasons they may have had.

So, Obama's wish to follow the Constitution, including giving rights to probable or possible terrorists, was nullified by the majority, not just Federal (Congress, etc.,) but also states like New York and others which refused to be the site where the trials could be held.

One other thing I dislike about the law these Washingtonians just passed: It's a felony not just to cooperate with the detaining, but ALSO a felony to cooperate with an INVESTIGATION? Jeesus, that's whacked!

Read backward and see where it all began, dear. Remember, US "law" is based on precedents, and Obama didn't establish the precedents, Bush did.

I'm sorry, but I'm not 100% sure you know what the word "precedent" means. I think you may have jumped into the 12-foot end of the pool on this thread. Here's a life preserver.

Best of luck with all your endeavors in life,

9/11 was an inside job. 7 of the 19 hijackers are still alive. They went on BBC and major networks and said, wtf, I have been here the whole time, I was never on the plane. We have 3 buildings that fell in New York at free fall speed, from only 2 planes, the one that didn't get hit fell for no damn reason. The part of the pentagon that got hit had the records on their $2.3 trillion dollar unaccounted for spending. No plane has been seen at all in any videos filming the pentagon. Nearly 2,000 professional engineers and scientist have joined together to say the official story is scientifically impossible. Osama Bin Laden was never even charged and when asked why, we are told that there was no evidence. We can attack any target in the world in minutes, and you're telling me we couldn't shoot down the second plane in the WTC?

We then spent trillions, where do you think that money goes? Do you think it vanishes? And now your willing to give up more and more freedom for a your potential security? The TSA is going to be on the roads soon, teaching your kids that everywhere they go for the rest of their lives they should expect to be searched and groped and silent.

Also, I'm pretty sure it's precedent, not precedents.

Also also, I didn't know "the other guy did it first" was a viable defense to civil rights violations.
