Question for Today: Did your government just add your name to its list of "enemy combatants,"
because you clicked on "Civil Rights"?
One would hope the answer is no. Especially these days, there may be only two reasons the
answer is no:
First, while the government might wish it could monitor everyone's Internet use, the odds are in
your favor that it does not yet have sufficient surveillance resources to have picked up your
activities at this time.
But more importantly, our Constitution has a Bill of Rights that provides its citizens certain
reasonable expectations of privacy.
Our Constitution provides all citizens certain civil rights: freedom of speech; freedom of religion;
freedom of the press; freedom against unreasonable searches and seizures; the right to bear
arms; due process; privacy; trial by jury; rights of the accused; property rights; prohibition of cruel
or unusual punishment; equal protection of the law; the right to vote; and habeas corpus.
Every level of government - school, local, county, state and federal - must respect these rights. If
you ever think anyone in government may have violated your civil rights or the civil rights of
someone you know, do not hesitate. We can answer your questions, and we can help you protect
your civil rights.
