US Weekly ATTENTION: Lincoln has just announced that he is going to suspend habeas corpus! ! ! ~For those of you who do not know what habeas corpus is, it is the right to be accused of a crime and be given fair trial. ! ~Lincoln suspends this to throw people like John Merryman (supporter of the Maryland Succession) in jail for the entire war without a trial. Lincoln’s actions were declared unconstitutional. ! ~I believe that Lincoln should not have suspended habeas corpus because when he did this, it wasn't fair for the criminals. They didn't get a chance to talk about what they did or why they did it. Some of them might have not even known what they were being thrown in jail for. ! ! ! ! ! !
