RIP: Fourth Amendment


The Defense Authorization Bill amendment allowing for indefinite detention of American citizens is described by  William Fisher in Law Professors Outraged by Senate Vote on Indefinite Detention [1]  as “Ambiguous but alarming new wording, which is tucked into the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) and  is reminiscent of the “extraordinary measures” introduced by the Nazis after they took power in 1933.”

This is certainly no laughing matter, but satirist Jon Stewart brings home the point very well on The Daily Show. See his comments HERE [2]  (Caution, viewer discretion advised: adult language and extreme sarcasm.)
