That’s how I see constitutional principles. You either believe in them for all Americans or you don’t. It’s just that black and white. You may hate, despise or simply disagree with what a person does in life but we should all except them as having the same rights.
In the case below, many draw the line. They’re willing to look the other way. As bad as the crime was, you can’t do that.
If you think the rights of a few will be all that’s infringed upon and your rights or those of the next generation will be safe. That it’ll never go that far, then you’re a fool who hasn’t learned what history has to teach.
Give harsher sentences if you must but never trade anyone’s rights for a false sense of security. We are guaranteed liberty, not safety.
