RTF 9th Amendment

…the Constitution doesn’t say every individual in the United States or every citizen is hereby granted or assured the right to habeas.

The best reaction to this attitude towards habeas corpus I can imagine is Mark Jaquith’s: it wasn’t long before he went from “pedantic tool" to “the reason for the 2nd Amendment" in my mind.

I posted this in February 2007 during week 1717.
