Why isn't he being tried as an "enemy combatant"? WHY? Really?
He's an American citizen accused of a violent crime ... we have laws to deal with this. He's entitled to every right afforded by the Constitution.
Period. He has the right to a fair trial by an impartial jury of his peers. It's not the media's job to issue death sentences. It's not Reddit's job.
It's not Lindsey Graham's job. It's the Court's job to establish guilt. Due process is fundamental to human freedom and dignity. We forfeit this, we
forfeit our identity as an equitable Republic, as a moral land under the rule of civilized law.
It seems people are all about the Constitution until it inconveniences their blood-lust. It's absolutely devastating to see how some people are
responding to this, how hastily they are willing to take life. Thank God for the Bill of Rights.
As the previous poster underlined, US citizens cannot be tried under military commissions. WHY this was ever called into question I do not know.
