He has rights you think?
And should cross-examine the victims himself you think?

Schulman could have answered the question and put the issue to bed.

Instead, he chose to tell Congress to go f*ck itself.

<quoted text>That's just dumb. Why are you people so obsessed with poor folk?
It's not poor people. I know plenty of poor people who pay their own way. There was a time when people were ashamed to ask for help. Now it is flaunted and expected as owed to them. It's mostly people who made bad life choices and now expect me to pay for them. At least Virginia has spread the dates out so the first is no longer a nightmare. Depending on the last number of your card you have a certain date that it renews. The big crush on the first is gone.

It's an unbelievable injutice to the victims who will be cross-examined by the same terrorist who tried to kill them.

It's too hard to even get your head around.

It's like pouring salt on their wounds after being completely ignored by this president and his failed promise of denying them benefits.

<quoted text>Isn't he an American citizen? Have you all heard of this thing call the U.S. Constitution? Go read up on the 6th Amendment.
The Right To Be Your Own Lawyer
The Sixth Amendment of the United States Constitution guarantees certain rights for someone accused of a crime:
•a speedy and public trial
•a trial by jury
•complete notice of the accusation
•confrontation of witnesses
•calling witnesses on one's behalf
•assistance of counsel
•self-representation
Self-representation is not mentioned in the Constitution and the courts have placed limits on this practice.

Amendment VI
In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the state and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the assistance of counsel for his defense.
That said, military courts operate under different rules than civilian courts. The accused has no right to use the court as a propaganda platform. Judges in both civilian and military courts have fairly wide latitude to exclude irrelevant testimony. They also have the right to terminate self-representation if necessary to assure a fair trial. This court has been far too tolerant of the unreasonable demands of the terrorist.
So he has the right to self represent and to question his accusers and any witnesses? You've said nothing different.

Yes, as a U.S. citizen he still has rights. Write your congress person have them get rid of the 6th Amendment if you don't like it. The law is the law it cannot be changed for your personal satisfaction.

Typical Rethug. You've got nothing to offer in the way of factual discussion so just spew nonsense because you like to hear yourself talk.

We wouldn't be in this mess if we hadn't blindly supported Israel and their terrorist tactics which angered the entire Arab world. Egypt is a soverign nation. If they want to support the Muslim Brotherhood so be it. If Israel doesn't like it. So be it. Let them work it out and leave the United States out of it.

Food stamps re primarily to make sure aid is used to feed the children.

So, you want parents to feel so embarrassed that they don't use food stamps & their children suffer?

I hateto you Homer but when he signed his name to become a part of the United States Armed Services he agreed to be tried under the Uniformed Code of Military Justice. They are going to tie him to a pole and execute him by firing squad.

Otherwise, who in their right mind in a country that was once proudly hailed as the land of the free not see this is illegal, un-American and a dangerous abuse of power which will only get worse if the complacency we see on here spreads?
I'm seriously very concerned. Our freedoms that once defined us is on the chopping block.
And some on here are the few of many others holding the cleaver.
