Constitutional Chaos: What Happens when the Government Breaks Its Own Laws

Front Cover
Nelson Current, 2004 - Political Science - 234 pages

In this alarming book, Fox News commentator Judge Napolitano makes the solid case that there is a pernicious and ever-expanding pattern of government abuse in America's criminal justice system, leading him to establish his general creed: "The government is not your friend." As an attorney, a law professor, a commentator, a judge, and now a successful television personality, Judge Napolitano has studied the system inside and out, and his unique voice has resonance and relevance. In this sensational book, Napolitano sets the record straight, speaking frankly from his own experiences and investigation about how government agencies will often arrest without warrant, spy without legal authority, imprison without charge, and kill without cause.

Easy read. Legal analysis for the non- lawyer. Nothing special in a good way or a bad way. Overall: scary how many and how much of our constitutional protections are worn away by the judicial branch that once protected them. Read full review
