(Before It's News)

C4SS Feed 44 presents Kevin Carson‘s “So-Called ‘Criminals’ Rights’ Protect the Rest of Us” read by Mike Godzina and edited by Nick Ford.

It’s a standard trope among right-wing “law and order” types to equate procedural protections against cops with protection of the alleged criminals they’re in pursuit of, or to equate due process rights to “criminal rights” (see also “Grace, Nancy”). No, Mr. Hawksley. They protect the rest of us. Nelson clearly desires that his neighbors be safe from warrantless invasion of their homes by trigger-happy cops, under the ostensible guise of fighting “terrorism” or “drugs.”

A lot more Americans — unarmed Americans — have been shot by trigger-happy cops in the past year, or had their faces repeatedly slammed into the concrete (“Stop resisting! Stop resisting”) after they were incapacitated, than were killed by terrorists. The stories seem to be appearing almost daily now about an unarmed person of color being shot by the police — sometimes while trying to surrender, sometimes in the back while fleeing, and sometimes with the cop planting evidence on their dead body after murdering them.
