Return to the rule of law......

I would like to see the position of AG return to its long lost purpose of upholding the Constitution. I see little difference between Holder and Gonzales, as both dispense the law at the whim of the President. The law is not a political ax to be wielded for political advantage. We KNOW that certain members of the Bush Administration committed, AT THE VERY LEAST, perjury before Congress. Where are the indictments? Glitzy ...more »

Do Your Sworn Duty, Mr. Holder

Would it be too much to ask that you do your job and actually enforce the Rule of Law, Mr. Holder? Prosecute our war criminals, past and current. Enforce the anti-trust laws already on the books.

Guantanamo prisoners

I am concerned the remaining Guantanamo prisoners will be jailed indefinitely without trial. If these people have committed crimes, by all means present the evidence and put them on trial. If not don't you have to release them? And if not, why? This whole issue is a stain on our flag. It needs to be dealt with right away and not allowed to continue. Thank you.

Justice at the Justice Department

After the Bush administration turned the Justice Dept. into the political strong arm of the White House, I was hoping that the Obama Justice Dept. would fix that. Alas, No. WHY are the Bush appointed US attorneys not replaced? WHY does Eric Holder refuse to do anything about the political prosecution of ex-Governor Don Siegelman of Alabama? Until Eric Holder does something about this HUGE miscarriage of justice, its ...more »

Quit Legitimizing Bush Administration Policies

The Department of Justice should not continue with its plans to create a three tiered system of justice where only those we are sure we can convict are allowed to be tried in civilian courts, those about whom the outcome is unsure are tried by military commissions, and those for whom the evidence is tainted because of the Bush Administration's policies are held indefinitely. This, in addition to capitulating to the demands ...more »

Who runs this carnival????

I get a chuckle out of this whole thing. I can't even find out who is "moderating" the site, despite querying the "site moderator". And who administers the site? Why do some comments get moderated by a "Department of Justice Moderator", and others by a "Site Moderator", and others by a "Site Administrator"??? How's that for "transparency"? We can't even determine who runs the damned thing, yet its a positive sign for ...more »

Prosecute Illegal Thought Reading of US Citizens

Prosecute Illegal Thought Reading and Unwarranted Surveillance of American Citizens Living in U.S. I have been used 24/7 by this government for 16 years. Others also. This is illegal. Act like law enforcement and enforce the law. Stop supporting State Secrets as a future excuse for members/agencies of U.S. Government not to held liable. Stop my abuse at the U.S. governments hands.

I suggest a lottery....

Personally, I think the DOJ should offer a citizen's lottery that provides the average "man on the street" the same kind of "Get Out Of Jail Free Card" that our politicians seem to regularly possess. This idea will serve two purposes; First, it will inform you in advance of the registrant's intention to commit a crime, for why else would they be competing for a "Get Out Of Jail Free Card"? And secondly, the ...more »

Guantanamo Prisoners

I believe that the holding of prisoners without charge or trial violates every tenet of law that the department of justice is designed to uphold. If they're prisoners of war, demonstrate it and treat them as such. The multiple sections of the Geneva conventions cover both conventional and unconventional prisoners of war. If they are guilty of criminal acts, there are established and effective ways to demonstrate that ...more »
