GRAVE INJUSTICE when they say you are a ‘bad’ person, and detain you without trial – and you do not even have the right to prove that they are wrong. Your right to challenge their reasons for detaining you without trial is taken away by law – and the courts cannot even look at and/or review the decisions of these authorities that detained you, and/or denied you other basic freedoms.
And, how this could be used against such a broad range of persons... but it really does not matter because the government does not have to prove anything in court, and persons affected have no right to challenge the reasons for the detention and/or restrictions..
