Prof. George P.

People detained since 9/11 are treated neither as suspects of crime or POWs, with protections each status affords. Reflecting the views of John Rawls, Prof. Fletcher concluded that the rights of the accused cannot be traded off to enhance the security of potential victims of similar crimes or society at large. "The first principle of criminal justice should be to do justice to the accused, both by holding fast to constitutional principles and to imposing punishment when it is deserved....Herein lies a message for the approach that we should take today toward the Constitution."
