September 25th, 2012: The first “National Due Process Day”
Posted September 25, 2012 in Law and the Constitution
It’s one of our most fundamental human ( individual ) rights.
How many of you realized that it’s protected by not one, but two constitutional Amendments?
Constitution of the United States
No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime,
unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising
in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time
of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offense
to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any
criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life,
liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be
taken for public use, without just compensation.
Amendment 14 1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws. To recognize these important rights, it seems that we now have a designated national Day. Our entire profession and industry is based on this right, so it's only right that it now has a day of it's own, where not only we who have so long been aware of it, can now celebrate it, but perhaps the general public can be encouraged to appreciate what we do, if not what we bring some of them when we do it. Let freedom ring!
