I am curious if there is currently a list available of any all all limitations to Constitutional rights throughout U.S. history. If there isn’t, would it be possible for one of the faculty to create one?
Looking at a historical timeline, it is clear that we have had moment in our past where whether it was habeus corpus, free speech, or whatever- that there have in fact been incidences in which the federal government has taken our rights secured by the Constitution away.
Well, here is one for last week, the Right to be Secure in your home. That didn’t work out so well in Boston last week did it? Due Process didn’t work out so great for the kid that was suspected in the bombing. This whole ordeal is such a tragedy, I am sure you could take the Bill of Rights and not find one that they did not violate. But what’s new?
And are Rights granted by the Constitution?
