The US Patriot Act was used AGAIN to incarcerate the juvenile & model citizen for months without being charged with a crime! Arrested March 5 not indicted until July 9 10th
He is detained on the basis of "good faith" beliefs on the part of the investigators, as permitted under the Patriot Act, rather than the normal legal standard of "probable cause" to suspect his commission of a crime.
Fact: Ashton has an airtight alibi for the night he supposedly made a threat against Purdue University in Indiana; while the real perps go free to brag about hacking his skype online!
16-year-old told the judge he needs dental work and education that he can only get outside the youth detention center where he has been since March But they STILL refuse to let him out!
Questions: Why was he held in Indiana rather than NC where the alleged crimes occurred?
Why does the DOJ not come clean when asked questions; and why is he held without charges, against human rights outlined in the US Constitution, for months at a time? Why does the DOJ get away with incarceration at all due to Ashtons alibi?
The real teen pranksters who did it broadcast their activities on a web site called fridaynightcranks(dot)com which is sponsored by SpoofCard (marketing byline: Be who you want to be), featuring such services as Fake a caller ID: Have any number appear on the display etc
As of August 6, the DOJ wont say whether the actual charges will include provisions under the Patriot Act. None the less, the teens original arrest & incarceration without charges & habeas corpus are only permissible under the US Patriot Act. This is in violation to basic human rights & decency under the US Constitution!
We have no rights under the Patriot Act to even defend them, because the Patriot Act basically supersedes the Constitution," she said. "It wasn't intended to drag your barely 16-year-old, 120-pound son out in the middle of the night on a charge that we can't even defend
Interviewed by WRAL-TV, attorney and former candidate for North Carolina Attorney General Dan Boyce notes:
"They're saying that 'We feel this individual is a terrorist or an enemy combatant against the United States, and we're going to suspend all of those due process rights because this person is an enemy of the United States"There's nothing a matter of public record All those normal rights are just suspended in the air."
the FBI blatantly lied to the federal magistrate, Judge Gates, that you could not hack an I.P. address they wanted my son, and they wanted to make an example of him.
