YouTube video: USA using Patriot Act against its own citizens

Sixteen-year-old Ashton Lundeby's bedroom in his mother's Granville County home is nothing, if not patriotic. Images of American flags are everywhere on the bed, on the floor, on the wall.

But according to the United States government, the tenth-grade home-schooler is being held on a criminal complaint that he made a bomb threat from his home on the night of Feb. 15.


"The government wins, because most people can't afford to be hauled off like that. They have to plead guilty to whatever the government says. The government sure is afraid of us."

"Congress can't pass an act that overrules the Constitution, by definition that's imposable, the Constitution would nullify that act or such portions of it that are in violation. That is why theses so called "officers of the law" should be absolutely ashamed of themselves as they just broke the law."

"Unless the agents enforcing the law are in breech the Patriot act is superseded by the United States Constitution as is every other act of law. Theses FBI agents as well as the Police of North Carolina, should be Ashamed of themselves and shamed by all their countrymen for breaching the law. None of them should be allowed to continue to carry the badge which they just brought shame to, and we need to make sure they know that!"

""Federal officers".There is no such thing.They are domestic enemies,and families that "don't believe in guns" are domestic enemies as well.The federal government was never granted the right to have a police force or an army,only the states have that right."

"I know this is YouTube, but it's clear you didn't even make it to the second paragraph. Let me be more clear (although you've probably had an ADD attack and stopped reading by now). It is irrelevant to me what the kid was charged with or who the kid is. The point is that all American citizens are entitled to the right to face their accusers, to the presumption of innocence, and to legal representation to present a defense in a timely trial. The Patriot Act destroys this."

"Well there you go. Give the government an ability and it abuses it about ten seconds after it's got it. Bravo, idiots... bravo. I frankly don't mind this sort of thing for people we pick up on the battlefield but you can't do this to American citizens in the US. The Supreme Court isn't doing it's job. I love You Tube videos."

"This is so sad. Blatant abuse of power! Pure abuse. The Patriot Act was not intended to be used against Americans..... It needs to be struck down... I too am an atheist and this has nothing to do with a lack of religious belief... He's only a 16 year old kid.... The founders of this country are turning over in their grave.."
