Legislation proposed to finish dismantling US Constitution?

I know police will commit perjury four in a row to ruin a self-employed person, a home owner, a landlord, and a father while protecting the prostitution business, drug trade, coddling organized crime from my own experiences observing police in action. I know that police listen to your phone calls, monitor your internet for retaliation, or if they have the hots for a young girl, woman, or want to steal something owned by someone else. Police don't oversee themselves well, how did it work out for Germany leading up to, and including World War II?

The US Police State has control of your tax dollars and they want more. They don't want you to get in the way of their thefts, so they'll take away all of your rights. Complain, and you may be officially murdered. They intend to legislate an okay for what they have already got accustomed to doing. They own you. If they own you, they own all that you think they own, can dispose of you, use you, and may even harvest your organs. It is all to prevent the terrorist threat, right?

The terrorists are the ones who bought, use, and present us our elected officials.

In the former USSR, cops raped women with immunity, stole whatever they pleased. What is different about what is now going on in the USA?

Republican Congressman Amash warns that bill can be applied to U.S. citizens

Controversy over whether or not Americans are exempt from a provision of the National Defense Authorization Act bill, set to be voted on this week by the Senate, which defines the the entirety of the United States as a battleground in the war on terror, has been addressed by Republican Congressman Justin Amash, who warns that the bill does apply to U.S. citizens.
As we previously reported, under the 'worldwide indefinite detention without charge or trial' provision of S.1867, the National Defense Authorization Act bill, which is set to be up for a vote on the Senate floor this week, the legislation will "basically say in law for the first time that the homeland is part of the battlefield," said Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), who supports the bill.

That provoked concerns that American citizens could be targeted as terrorists and indefinitely detained without trial or charge.

"One section of these provisions, section 1031, would be interpreted as allowing the military to capture and indefinitely detain American citizens on U.S. soil. Section 1031 essentially repeals the Posse Comitatus Act of 1878 by authorizing the U.S. military to perform law enforcement functions on American soil. That alone should alarm my colleagues on both sides of the aisle, but there are other problems with these provisions that must be resolved," Colorado Senator Mark Udall said in a speech earlier this month.

Following an ACLU alert on the legislation, some pointed out that the text of the bill actually exempts Americans from being detained under the new "homeland battlefield" designation under the proviso that "the requirement to detain a person in military custody under this section does not extend to citizens of the United States."

However, as Republican Congressman Justin Amash told the The Grand Rapids Press today, the language of the bill is "carefully crafted to mislead the public."

"Note that it does not preclude U.S. citizens from being detained indefinitely, without charge or trial, it simply makes such detention discretionary," Amash wrote on his Facebook page.

The controversy over whether or not the text of the bill suggests the legislation applies to U.S. citizens is largely inconsequential given the fact that every piece of anti-terror legislation passed since 9/11 has been used against Americans, both at home and abroad.

The Patriot Act was passed in the name of giving federal authorities the tools to catch terrorists, but it has been used in hundreds of cases against American citizens, often in cases that have no relation whatsoever to terrorism.
