Open Letter to Senator Collins
It has been very distressing to see you on TV, in your capacity as a United States Senator, disparaging the US Justice System, the Bill of Rights, and the rule of Law.
If you cannot read the Bill of Rights and understand our way of life, perhaps you should STFU and get the heck off my TV until you can have it explained to you in simple words :
We do not hurt people that are in custody. (only barbarians do that)
We explain to people in custody the rights that they are entitled to in our system of justice. (In order that we can prosecute them without their calling a mistrial and being set free because of official police misbehavior).
Our government, and by extension our Police, considers those who have not been proved criminals in a court of law to be innocent of wrongdoing until such time as they have been proven guilty.
Our government has successfully prosecuted all the terrorists that we have caught with the exception of those that the Bush administration stuffed into GITMO.
You ma'am, are an embarrassment.
