Civil Rights Infringement

B

BarleyMob

I have to write an essay on civil right infringments during wartimes in the U.S. and was wondering if anyone could give me some help. I have to give three examples and write about it and so far I can only think of the Japanese internment camps. I want to write about the civil rights infringments during "the war of terror," but I can't think of any right now. If anyone can help me out, i'd appreciate it.

Thanks,
BarleyMob

Easy, just look at what the Partiot Act entails.

Try looking up at Amnesty's report on secret U.S. prison camps.

You could always take the bold route and do your paper on Lincoln in the Civil War.

Ah, more rhetoric.

Please give some examples of exactly what problems you have with the PA and how it's being abused.
