I Couldn't Have Said It Better

One more quote to supplement my previous entry:

      "We cannot defend our democracies if we abandon respect for due process and fundamental rights. When public order is put above the civil liberties of citizens, then that democracy has adopted the tactics and principles (or lack of principles) of its enemies, and has been partially defeated."
