Since 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.
