US about to officially become a police state

without comments

If you think the police brutality agains the occupy movement was bad, just wait until the military rolls in…

Straight from the ACLU’s Washington Legislative Office:

Senators Demand the Military Lock Up American Citizens in a “Battlefield” They Define as Being Right Outside Your Window

While nearly all Americans head to family and friends to celebrate Thanksgiving, the Senate is gearing up for a vote on Monday or Tuesday that goes to the very heart of who we are as Americans. The Senate will be voting on a bill that will direct American military resources not at an enemy shooting at our military in a war zone, but at American citizens and other civilians far from any battlefield — even people in the United States itself.

[…]

The worldwide indefinite detention without charge or trial provision is in S. 1867, the National Defense Authorization Act bill, which will be on the Senate floor on Monday. The bill was drafted in secret by Sens. Carl Levin (D-Mich.) and John McCain (R-Ariz.) and passed in a closed-door committee meeting, without even a single hearing.

Of course Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) raised his concerns, the White House, the Secretary of Defense, and the Attorney General have all said that the indefinite detention provisions in the National Defense Authorization Act are harmful and counterproductive. The White House has even threatened a veto.

Despite all that, Senate still managed to get it to the Senate floor.

Update, Nov. 29th: And of course, it passed. What else did you expect from the land of the free and the home of the brave.

Update, Dec. 7th: Well, at least The Daily Show’s coverage is fun to watch…
