Why I'm Relentless on Ethical Treatment of Detainees

And punishment for those who mistreated them: it's part of our heritage - to distrust a government that lords authority over those without representation, who exercise control over those who they would lead.

I am reminded of a William O. Douglas quote: "The liberties of none are safe unless the liberties of all are protected." That's why lawyers exist, and why I cannot stand the recent acquittal of Bybee and Yoo.
