United States’ Government Violations of People’s Rights

There have been government case courses that used immunity, to try to protect a government employee from receiving a lawful punishment.

The court system will be able to take away a person’s property that may appear harmful to themselves, or to other people. The United States government had come a long way from when they te added the Bill Of Right, the Amendments, and several acts throughout time. The United States government is not perfect, no government is perfect. The government does not have the right to suspend a citizen’s constitutional rights.

Eugene V. Debs was a socialist, who created the International Workers of the World.

He also won 6% in the 1912 United States presidential election. Eugene V. Debs had led several historic strikes, gave speeches. He organized the American Railway Union. This union performed a strike on the Pullman Company of Chicago in 1894. Eugene V. Debs was not afraid to speak his mind. He also gave a speech in Canton, Ohio, the government just passed the Espionage and Sedition Acts. The Espionage and Sedition Acts made it illegal to interfere with the operations of the government to promote the enemies and stop many forms of speech that is considered as disloyal to the United States of America. Eugene V. Debs was speaking out against the Espionage and Sedition Acts. Eugene was sentenced to prison for the speech against the Espionage and Sedition Acts, he was later sentenced to prison on April 13, 1919, Eugene was released from an Atlanta federal prison, on December 25, 1921 (Kreitner, Richard). The government suppressed Eugene V. Debs’ voice during the Industrial Revolution, and now during World War I. Eugene V. Debs never backed down from expressing his views. The government was not constitutionally right to suspend Eugne V Debs voice, because he was just speaking his mind, he was not causing any harm. The government thoughts on this particular action was they did not want to deal with a war inside the county, well dealing with another war outside of the county. The Espionage and Sedition Acts, also made it a crime when someone was to go against the draft or speak out negatively about the draft, it was passed on June 15, 1917. (Thomas Healy, 2019).

American citizens who live in California will be able to ask their court system to be able to take away people’s guns who they think pose a danger to themselves and to other people. Currently, only law enforcement agencies and immediate family members can only be the people who can file to prevent someone’s access to their guns. This violates the Second Amendment, the Second Amendment states: “…the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed” (Alan Yuhas, 2017). When the Second Amendment uses “infringed” the thought of breaking this law should not even be considered a possibility. This new law is a violation against the First Amendment. Since this new law that California is going to pass will make people fear speaking their own minds, they will become robots who know what to say, how to say it, and they will filter out words that may cause them to lose their property. There are states that have “guns-at-work” laws These laws require employers to permit employees to allow them to leave their guns hidden, out of plain sight. California does not have this form of law, and yet they are gonna allow an employee boss to allow the government to take away their guns completely (Ellen Savage, 2016).

The United States Government does not have the right to take away, or even suspend someone’s rights. The US Government hads in the past wasted time, and money because they can’t fully follow the Amendments that this country had flourished from. The government had tried to suppress an american person’s voice, by trying to enforce acts. There are acts, and laws that make no sense to have the amendments. If the government has no interest in following the amendments they should just start all over.
