What is due process and how does redlex violate your rights?
As a tax paying, civil, law abiding American, you are entitled to due legal process. Privately held surveillance devices in the hands of profiteering state officials take away this process.
These devices take away a very necessary human step, and officer or human witnessing you committing a traffic “offense” in person. The machines (or paid monitoring employees) fail to take into account the human conditions and conditions that take place during a ticket.
What is Due Process:
“Due process is the legal requirement that the state must respect all of the legal rights that are owed to a person. Due process balances the power of law of the land and protects the individual person from it.”
– So when a private company mails you a $450 dollar bill this is skipping many of the traditional steps of law enforcement in society. It’s dehumanizing – and it’s an excessive tax which violates the bill of rights Amendment VIII: (http://www.archives.gov/exhibits/charters/bill_of_rights_transcript.html)
“Amendment VIII – Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.”
I would consider $450, which is around the average weekly income of the average American, to be a gross violation of the bill of rights in general.
“When a government harms a person without following the exact course of the law, this constitutes a due-process violation, which offends against the rule of law.”
I hope this has inspired my fellow American citizens to re-examine what it means to have a due process, and to take a closer look at how entities of the modern surveillance state are actually violating your basic human liberties.
