SCOTUS Kills Habeas Corpus

SCOTUS has just declined to take all seven of the pending Gitmo habeas corpus petitions, including Latif and Uthman.

This effectively kills habeas corpus.

Consider what SCOTUS just blessed:

  • Holding a person indefinitely for being in the wrong place at the wrong time–including a school, a road, and a guest house–where suspect people are.
  • Holding a person indefinitely based on an admittedly error-ridden report the government wrote up itself.
  • Holding a person indefinitely based on pattern analysis.
  • Completely upending the role of District Court judges in the fact-finding process.

bmaz @adamjohnsonNYC Actually, the local DA, Bill Montgomery, is close to Arpaio. It is a federal judge who has him tied up in knots.

emptywheel @NC_Prime If you make clients cut bread subsidies at a time of already high unrest you're going to necessitate further repression.

emptywheel @NC_Prime That's part of the reason I said our neoliberal ideology can no longer work to ground imperialism.
