Bill of Rights Revitalization: Public Comment

After rewriting Article Three, I got to work on rewriting the BOR, as the current one is a god awful patchwork of shit that barely functions. Here’s my draft: BOR Revitalization Amendment - Google Docs

So yeah, thought I’d do what I did with my C.III revision and ask for any public comment before I have it proposed.

Notable changes:

  • Name and badge removed from Cons (separate bill covering such will be proposed in conjunction)
  • Due process better specified
  • Generally shortened shit
  • Tourist protests are no longer legally protected (:sunglasses:)
  • Search and seizure is better
  • Petitions and FOI actually make sense now

Just a few quick points from me:

  • “induced” = persuaded and persuasion is not always by force so it suggest rephrasing it (its in § 3)

  • also in § 3, are you saying that any testimony taken by any body for any reason must result in someone’s miranda rights being read?

if thats what your saying, I’d remove that portion…

  • I’d also remove the requirement that forces officers to tell someone why they are under arrest - they can see the why in the arrest database.

Other than that no issues.

Wording tweaked on right to remain silent. And I am very clearly not doing that

Although indeed I like that thing are now clearer and more open I thing that Section VIII (considering the current one) might need a few changes, I think that VIII in the part that says “immediate probable cause” could be interpreted as basically only arrests in fraganti can be made, and although it covers searches I don’t think it covers seizures that good. Something along the lines of the goverment may not conduct unreasonable searches, seizures or arrests.

Just my thought tbh.

May have been answered or i misunderstood, with searches, will they still be voluntary under request. ie, Secret Service asks you if they can search you, you say yes, will that be still lawful?

Is it safe to presume none of these rights apply to the binman secretary?

I mean, I guess in my head I presumed the legal theory that consentful searches are always lawful, but knowing FS LEOs and our strict constructionist judges, it may indeed be best to specify that. As such, I have now done so

Can someone make a trello with the traffic laws and then legalize that?? I think we need a proper traffic law trello like the amazing criminal code one.

Not legalised but allegedly most accurate Trello

Yeah I agree it’s good. However, I still believe we need a officially recognized one

I think they’re waiting for V3 before making the traffic code legal since it’ll be redone
