Yes, a violation, but that's not what you
You called it an "erosion", and as we both know, that's two different things. I get your whole "defender of the constitution" persona thing...but in this case, being inflammatory doesn't really serve your cause to bring debate to the issue does it...
I would think that this is one violation in a process of erosion. Does that sound OK? The thread title does say Futher
Erosion. Erosion happens over time.
OK, enough with the "did he use the right word" deal.
Oh, and by the way, I am not sure what my "Defender of the Constitution Persona Thing" is, I just happen to have a strong opinion that the government has no right being involved with my business, and has limited powers to that effect. These powers and limits are defined in the Constitution, and I don't like it when the government steps on them.
As an aside, I'm having trouble veryifying this story. Any help would be appreciated.
I too have been looking for further proof. He did an interview on Democracy Now, where he mentions the ACLU is working on it for him. However, the ACLU doesn't mention it on their site. Mr. Jarrar also says he does not know exactly who the "government agents" were, although he says he has their badge numbers. Every badge I have seen has a title on there, such as "Los Angeles Police Department" or "U.S. Marshal". So I don't know what to make of that.
It could also be that the ACLU is preparing a case and doesn't want to talk about it yet, which could also be why we haven't seen anything else about it, as the ACLU lawyers may have told him not to speak to anyone about it until they file the suit.
JetBlue has nothing on their press releases page, but why would they?
But these are all theories in my little mind... who knows what is really going on.
