Who Needs Martial Law?

Posted by Terrible on March 27, 2007 – 7:49 pm

According to U.S. District Judge Thomas F. Hogan government employees can do anything they want to you including torture and not be held responsible. Sweet.

U.S. District Judge Thomas F. Hogan threw out a lawsuit brought on behalf of nine former prisoners in Iraq and Afghanistan. He said Rumsfeld cannot be held personally responsible for actions taken in connection with his government job.

    How very intersting! Seems judge Hogan has quite a history of screwing America and American ideals of justice:

    Seems he’s a Reagan appointee(surprise, surprise) and was involved in the Iran-Contra cases that went nowhere. And then there’s this:

    ho ho and involved with Delay and Boehner in the McDermott case cocerning Ginrichs lack of ethics. Guess which way he decided:

    And he was involved in the Valerie Plame case. He’s the one who wasted all that time screwing around with reporters instead of having the known criminals in the White House arrested.

    In his defence it does seem he made a few decisions that weren’t politicly motivated.

    I wonder if this half wit Hogan understands the future reprecussions from setting such a precedent?

    Why should he care? None of it will affect the wealthy or the powerful, they live in a different country than we do. The law does not apply to them, they can take or leave the Constitution at their convenience, and take it away from the rest of us at their whim.

    It’s a scary fucking world these days isn’t it. The evil motherfuckers continue to triumph, and the regular people, the poor & working-class, the disenfranchised and disadvantaged — we continue to be fucked by these bastards.

    Makes one wonder if there’s any point to any of it, if there’s any point to trying to save this country anymore, if there’s any of it left to save.

    It seems odd that this idiotic decision comes on the same day that a spokesman for the UN says torturers should have to pay damages to torture victims.

    I have to agree with the UN on this one. Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld should have to pay substantial damages to the thousands of people they ordered to be tortured!

    Let’s see…. I think I said:

    What’s strange to me is that based on his comments Hogan doesn’t seem to have ever heard of the Neurenburg Trials. I have every intention of writing to whatever “law school” he went to and asking them just what kind of kangaroo kindergarten they’re running there! And notice how the government job angle didn’t exempt enlisted men from being held personally responsible?

    I think that was pretty much it.
