Justice Antonin Scalia predicts that the Supreme Court will eventually authorize another a wartime abuse of civil rights such as the internment camps for Japanese-Americans during World War II.

"You are kidding yourself if you think the same thing will not happen again," Scalia told the University of Hawaii law school while discussing Korematsu v. United States, the ruling in which the court gave its imprimatur to the internment camps.


Justice Antonin Scalia says World War II-style internment camps could happen again

Well, here is another timely headline, one in which I thought
the headline would lead to a far out news site, though turns out its real.
From The Washington Examiner, and Associated Press.

Speaking to the Universtiy of Hawaii law school, Justice Scalia used a Latin
phrase that means "in times of war, the laws fall silent,"
in explanation as to why the court erred in that decision and could do so again.

In Latin: In Bello Leges Sileant

While his focus was on Japanese internment camps, put together with
his other comments one must wonder if he is purposely delivering a message to us?


1944 decision in Kore­ma­tsu v. United States, which upheld the
convictions of Gordon Hira­ba­ya­shi and Fred Kore­ma­tsu for violating
an order to report to report to an internment camp. www.staradvertiser.com...


Scalia is 77 years of age, and did not take questions from the press.


Avi Soifer, the law school's dean, said he believed Scalia was suggesting
people always have to be vigilant and that the law alone can't be trusted
to provide protection.


The law alone can not be trusted, and people need to be vigilant,
well I do not disagree with that.

Thoughts on this?

WEll Scallia was a scary choice in the first place as he is a supporter of doom and gloom. I am not really all that knowledgeable about him but I really trusted my Mom and she was freaked that he was commissioned.

Well, one thing for certain no one knows the SCOTUS like he does,
he has been around for a long time, and I am sure he has heard things
that would make most of us look very sane.

So it seems anyways by his comments.

Thanks for your comments Antar, hope you doing well.
*hugs

We sure missed our boat in not electing him,
I must say. A great time of regret is coming.

We're not that far from it now. Liberty or security. You can't have both. Internment camps are in the name of protecting us from threats.

This has happened, yes.
A few journalists come to mind.

Some scattered info says there are existing camps,
certainly not saying that for gloom and doom,

I was rather shocked to see this actually.

Wise man he is, he is up there in years and being the senior associate,
well maybe he figured it was time to say it.

Me as well. Seems just dumb for people to do this.

Interesting article none the less.

This statement brings up some questions.

He spoke of "internment camps".

He mentioned "wartime".

The camps he referred to were directed towards specific nationalities.

I wonder who would be the "new" targets?

Would a "wartime" be internal or foreign?

Is he *hinting* or *predicting* or *warning*?

Hmmm.

My thoughts as well;
he did say this in preface "your kidding yourself if you dont think this
could happen again" and then said the court erred.

Hmmmm.

We will see if he makes a retraction, or clarifies.

Scalia is the person known for saying that writ of habeas corpus is an aberration, and does not belong in the Constitution.
