The Department of Justice (DOJ) has a process called an arrest warrant, which is used to arrest an individual whom the federal government believes has committed a crime. The federal government will then bring a case against them.
The problem with this is that an arrest warrant is basically a warrant for arrest. The federal government can arrest you at any time, without any court proceedings. And there’s no process for the DOJ to issue a warrant for an individual. So if the federal government has a warrant for a person, they can arrest that person without a warrant.
While I realize that this is a serious problem, I think there is an argument to be made for issuing a warrant for an individual. The federal government and the local police force are sworn to uphold the law and make sure that everyone is who they are supposed to be. If you are a criminal, the law should demand that you be arrested and brought to court.
This is a good argument. If you were a criminal, you should be arrested, and your case should be brought to a court of law. If you were a terrorist, you should be arrested and brought to court, just as terrorist suspects should be arrested, charged, and brought to court. In fact, I don’t see how anyone can argue that the government has a right to arrest people merely because they have a warrant for them.
No, the government has no right to arrest you for the mere fact that you are a criminal, unless you committed a crime, which you have no right to commit. In fact, you have no rights at all unless you are a criminal. Criminals are not citizens.
That is precisely why I am against arresting people for mere possession of illegal drugs. That is not the first step towards getting them arrested. We can’t even arrest you merely for walking through the street. We need to arrest you for violating the criminal code. That doesn’t mean we have to put you in jail. We just need to put you in jail.
There is a difference between a mere possession charge (which is what the irs is charging you with) and a crime. At least until the criminalized version of the drug is legalized, which is when we will have a chance to put people in jail for a crime they didn’t commit.
A man who’s a heroin addict is unlikely to be on the street long enough to commit a crime, but if he does, the irs will likely have him arrested. Also, because the irs will not charge him for possession, they can’t arrest him for a crime that didn’t occur.
One man who’s been doing heroin for quite awhile, though not long enough to be a criminal, was recently arrested for possession of heroin. Not a big deal, but still.
I mean, the irs already have a record of people being arrested on drug charges, and I imagine they would have a record of someone having a problem with heroin, but that doesnt mean they would have the authority to arrest someone for possession of heroin. A person who is using heroin could be arrested for possessing it, but the irs are not the ones to make that arrest.
