Certainly, no permanent detention without trial

This petition had 97 supporters


While closing Guantanamo must not lead to the travesty of a "Gitmo North"; that isn't enough, we must, as a nation, re-embrace law and human, etc., rights, as a body; again.  The United States is currently detaining hundreds of individuals in Guantanamo and Afghanistan without charging them or providing them a day in court. The Obama administration plans to continue this policy, possibly within the US.  These prisoners are considered too dangerous to release and too difficult to prosecute. If evidence is too unreliable to justify detention after criminal trial, it is certainly too unreliable to justify indefinite detention without trial.  Indefinite detention is a violation of due process and the American principles of justice and fairness. I urge you to reject policies that indefinitely imprison individuals without charge or the chance of a trial, now.   reality
