A federal court just ruled indefinite detention UNCONSTITUTIONAL

Here's some good news for a change:

A federal court in New York just ruled indefinite detention UNCONSTITUTIONAL and issued a permanent injunction against use of that law.  It would have allowed the military to detain civilians -- even Americans -- indefinitely and without trial if they're accused of certain crimes.

All right, added a link above.  This information is from Demandprogress.org of which I have been a member for some-odd years, they've been fighting this for a while among other things.

I also added a link to a more detailed article below the first link, thanks to James' comment.

It may not change anything but it's still a good thing because it focuses attention on the issue indefinite detention.

What makes you think this will change anything? All the judges ruling in the South didn't stop the feds from invading in '65. The elites will do anything they want, regardless of the rule of law.

Yes... it is nice to hear some good news for a change. It just goes to show you, there are still pockets of resistance within law enforcement and the government fighting the good fight and winning... not all is lost :)

While calling the law “unconstitutionally overbroad,” Forrest said the government can use another law to indefinitely detain people
http://www.theblaze.com/stories/federal-judge-strikes-down-indefini...

federal judge on Wednesday blocked the government from enforcing a controversial statute about the indefinite detention without trial of terrorism suspects. Congress enacted the measure last year as part of the National Defense Authorization Act.

The ruling came as the House voted to extend for five years a different statute, the FISA Amendments Act, that expanded the government’s power to conduct surveillance without warrants. Together, the developments made clear that the debate over the balance between national security and civil liberties is still unfolding 11 years after the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11.

In the detention case, Judge Katherine B. Forrest of the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York issued a permanent injunction barring the government from relying on the defense authorization law to hold people in indefinite military detention on suspicion that they “substantially supported” Al Qaeda or its allies — at least if they had no connection to the Sept. 11 attacks.

The United States has been detaining terrorism suspects indefinitely since 2001, relying on an authorization by Congress to use military force against perpetrators of the Sept. 11 attacks and those who helped them. Last year, Congress decided to create a federal statute that codified authority for such detentions.
