As you might see soon, english is not my mothertongue. And since english speaking people are used to others stumble around in their language, I hope I don't make too much of an idiot of myself here. So - my deepest apologies adressed to the English Language for not worshipping her better.

Civil rights? To hell with them!
You know Jose Padilla? Tomorrow he will be in prison for one year, without having ever seen a lawyer, without having been told about his rights and without much other stuff, the usual US mass-murderer or children-rapist gets. It is one of my core beliefs that a state government should morally and also legally stand above those oh so human feelings like revenge and similar. I don't see a reason why the average terrorist should be more dangerous than the average mass-murderer or rapist or amok-runner. So why does he get a different treatment? One could say they have lost the right for those privileges. A-ha. And the massmurderer and rapist did not have lost them? What they did was not so bad? Come on! Here is a german link to a story about Jose Padilla and John Ashcroft who wants to make sure that the Jose Padillas in this world don't get to see their lawyers any soon. Next to this, this Ashcroft guy has some other ideas and goals which let a thinking human being just frightening.
