With a few pen strokes, Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder took the first step in getting the Great Lakes State out of the indefinite detention business.
On Thursday, Snyder signed bill prohibiting any state agency in Michigan from cooperating with the U.S. military if it attempts to indefinitely detain a U.S. citizen without due process.
SB094 bars any state agency, employee, agency of a political subdivision of the state and members of the Michigan National Guard from aiding “an agency of the armed forces of the United States in any investigation, prosecution, or detention of any person pursuant to section 1021 of the national defense authorization act for fiscal year 2012, if such aid would place that state agency, political subdivision, employee, or member of the Michigan national guard in violation of the United States constitution, the state constitution of 1963, or any law of this state.”

Good news for those in Michigan....................or NOT? The totalitarian environment of this country when it comes to States rights and the voice of the citizens whom vote doesn't seem to matter anymore!
Hell, just look at the states whom the people have voted to legalize a certain noun that we are not aloud to talk about and how the FEDS seem to think they have the authority to OVERRULE the wishes of the people......
Time for the States to have a Constitutional Convention to take away the overstepping authority that the Feds have deemed they know best don't you think?edit on 27-12-2013 by seeker1963 because: (no reason given)

The Michigan law seems to only stop their guard units from "aiding" the U.S. Military etc. etc.
