Kevin Felts political commentatorSince when is it ok to kill US citizens without due process?  With the assassination of Anwar al-Awlaki, I guess its open hunting season on people who speak out against the US Government.

Where do we draw the line?

Was Anwar al-Awlaki on the street shooting people? No, he was not. He was on the internet, talking. Since when is talking a crime? I thought political speech was protected for US citizens? Maybe freedom of political speech is only protected when its not “too” critical of the government.

Maybe the government has a sliding scale to judge if someone is “too” radical. If the person scores high in the scale, they will be put to death like a rabid dog? Who gets to make the scale? Who gets to determine who lives and who dies.

Whats next, the government shooting people for voting third party? How about arresting bloggers for telling people to resist the government? Is the army going to get called out on #occupywallstreet?

No exceptions should be made in due process for US citizens. We can not pick and choose to whom the law applies, and who the law does not apply to.

“Every” citizen is entitled to equal protection under the law. That is the very foundation of our legal system.

The assassination of an American citizen can not be tolerated.

Today, I am ashamed to be an US Citizen. Two US citizens were assassinated by the US government, and the people applaud.

Whatever happened to being innocent until proven guilty in a court of law? Whatever happened to due process? The right to a speedy trial, and a trial by jury are the cornerstones of our legal system. We can not allow the government to erode those rights.

President obama took an oath to uphold and protect our Constitution. Assassinating US Citizens is not what I call upholding our laws.

Everyone that voted for obama, your president just wiped his ass with our Constitution and flushed it down the toilet, I hope you are happy.
