Suppose you are a suspect/perpetrator of a crime and are subsequently placed under arrest.
You are known to the police and the neighborhood as a habitual offender/career criminal.
As you are being led away, the crowd points at you and starts chanting “Al Qaeda! Al Qaeda!”
You aren’t actually a terrorist…just a common criminal. A pain in the ass.
However, back at the precinct, they’re sick and tired of seeing you…again.
So they invoke the PATRIOT Act and ship your ass to Guantanamo Bay, Cuba…
…where you DON’T have the right to remain silent,
you DON’T have the right to an attorney,
and you DON’T have the right to a speedy trial.
Is any of this plausible?
