Posted on 03/27/2005 4:11:16 AM PST by The_Reader_David

§ 241. Conspiracy against rights

If two or more persons conspire to injure, oppress, threaten, or intimidate any person in any State, Territory, Commonwealth, Possession, or District in the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege secured to him by the Constitution or laws of the United States, or because of his having so exercised the same; or

If two or more persons go in disguise on the highway, or on the premises of another, with intent to prevent or hinder his free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege so secured—

They shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both; and if death results from the acts committed in violation of this section or if such acts include kidnapping or an attempt to kidnap, aggravated sexual abuse or an attempt to commit aggravated sexual abuse, or an attempt to kill, they shall be fined under this title or imprisoned for any term of years or for life, or both, or may be sentenced to death.

If not Terri, at least the rule of law, could be saved out of this sorry affair if President Bush, or some really gutsy prosecutor with the Civil Rights Division of the DOJ, would use this law as the basis for arresting Judge George Greer, George Felos and Michael Schaivo.

If nothing else the denial of Easter Communion to Terri Schaivo 'under color of law' is a violation of the constitutional guarantee of freedom of religion, both hers and that of the priest who wanted to commune her.

I think you missed the point of the appellate review, to wit: Judges are free to choose which laws they would like to follow and which laws they would like to ignore.

Greer, Felos, Michael Schiavo and their accomplices WILL account for their actions before the Supreme Judge of all creation.

They have sealed their own fate, but WE will be suffering the consequences of their hideous deeds for a very long time.

While I agree with your thoughts the rule of law and the Constitution have been tossed in the dustbin. The black robed dictators have taken control and will not allow the Constitution to bother them in their head long movement toward the complete take over of our nation. We can save some money by the Congress disbanding so that we will not have to pay them but I do not see that happening they will be kept on as figure heads to play golf, have parties and raise their voices as if they had some authority to do something.

A thought occurred to me:

Deathocrats are NOT inconsistent/hypocritical while they are anti-death for murderers while at the same time they are pro death for the brain-damaged, and pre-born people. Since murderers are into death themselves, deathocrats are merely rewarding them (by advocating sparing their lives) for what they've done.

Right on. You summed it up in 2 sentences.

The problem is that there's neither a federal law nor a Constitutional guarantee which 'secures' a general 'right to life', so 18 USC 241 doesn't apply, at least not directly.

Something might be made of the Declaration of Independence's listing of "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness" as natural rights, along with the Ninth Amendment's protection of unenumerated rights, as giving Constitutional protection to 'life', but it would be an uphill fight.

I am not holding my breath. At this point, I cannot imagine any of our 'leaders' perilously risking their precious jobs and their carefully managed careers attached to the public tit to act on behalf of what is at the most elemental level - right. No, they will massage themselves and their record as heroes by acting within the limits they took on themselves and called the law - even law which is not law because some evil judge said it is so. Oh yes, the law which stands today and is gone tomorrow. Yes, the law which even now is killing an innocent. Yes, one can be very proud of defending and obeying such laws. God forbid that we should ever sacrifice our office and privilege for principle rather than the letter of the law.

I only hope now for a swift death for Terri.

If two or more persons go in disguise on the highway ...

Sad to see laws like this quoted at FR as if they were a good thing. I thought it was the Dims who relished the notion that today anything and everthing is a Federal offense.

Why does it have to be leaders? This is Easter Sunday . A band of clergy from all faiths should converge on the hospice and march toward the door .What a sight that would be .. Where is the outcry from the clergy ?? The Catholic Pope and the Vatican wanted Terri re-attached to the feeding tube last week and that was the end of it . This is a travesty and I am not a really religious person. I put myself in the parent's shoes. If it were my son or daughter I would already have been arrested . If it were my son or daughter, my final goal in life would be to send the Schaivo, his lawyer, and Greer straight to hell.

That is why I picked the denial of communion as the basis for the arrests. I also suspect there may be something in the Americans with Disabilities Act, or other more obscure Federal legislation which might apply.

Indeed, perhaps a Roman Catholic priest could force the issue by going to give her communion, then filing a complaint with DOJ.

>>>§ 241. Conspiracy against rights

If two or more persons conspire to injure, oppress, threaten, or intimidate any person in any State, Territory, Commonwealth, Possession, or District in the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege secured to him by the Constitution or laws of the United States, or because of his having so exercised the same<<<


well, obviously this law hasn't been allowed as a defense for decades... otherwise the IRS, ATF, DEA, etc would be out of business.. one thing MIRACULOUS that Terri has accomplished is waking some conservatives up to how far we have allowed our gvt to stray from it's basic roots. some of us always knew that. and now Bush is talking about creating yet ANOTHER fed dept.. can you all say Janet Reno?

Well .. this law certainly could be used - however, the burden that an actual "conspiracy" exists - will take time to prove.

Hopefully, someone will be up to that challenge.
