NEW YORK (AP) — A judge on Wednesday struck down a portion of a law giving the government wide powers to regulate the detention, interrogation and prosecution of suspected terrorists, saying it left journalists, scholars and political activists facing the prospect of indefinite detention for exercising First Amendment rights.
U.S. District Judge Katherine Forrest in Manhattan said in a written ruling that a single page of the law has a "chilling impact on First Amendment rights." She cited testimony by journalists that they feared their association with certain individuals overseas could result in their arrest because a provision of the law subjects to indefinite detention anyone who "substantially" or "directly" provides "support" to forces such as al-Qaida or the Taliban.

This government is doing "the frog boil" on the constitution. A little chop on this law here, and a little chop there on that law, and pretty soon the whole Constitution is in a pile of trash ready to be swept into the garbage can while we the people go into internment camps, get disappeared or to re-education facilities while smiling to the beat of our puppets in goverment. The NEW World Order moves on slowly with deliberate steps to give us what Germany had before WWll. I hope that the judge is wearing her body armor and pot helmet. The Govermnent is pissed at her for upholding the law of the land. We do not want to see another Judge Roll and Gabby Giffords conspiracy played out because of their constitutional beliefs. Peace
