i believe the dude is an enemy of the state therefore no rights for him. anyone who decides to commit an act of terror is an enemy combatant and doesnt deserve the rights american citizens get. that being said the whole surveilance on mosques thing is stupid. muslim students coming to our country really depends on where theyre from.

He's a US citizen. The Constitution guarantees him certain rights. No ifs, ands, or butts about it. It's quite clear that all US citizens are entitles to equal protection under the constitution.
Our American legal system is based on precedent. You know it's common to reference decades-old cases when in doubt of how to proceed. If we set this precedent now that we can just pick and choose who gets rights and who doesn't, that's a very dangerous road to go down.

He's a citizen. Regardless of what he did, he's presumed innocent until proven guilty and he's entitled to his rights.

What really defies this as a terrorist act.
This man is an american citizen, with no links to any terrorist organisation who committed a horrible act. The fact that explosives were used does not mean that it is automatically a terrorist act. If no links to any further organisations are found, he should be tried as a normal 19 year old committing these acts. Not a terrorist.

We actually have 27 Amendments (One of which repealed another). The first ten are called the 'Bill of Rights', literally there to preserve our freedoms and, well, our rights.

A1: Freedom of Speech and of the Press. Both a blessing and a curse, in this particular instance, but you're allowed to say anything you want.

A2: The right to bear arms. Self explanatory.

A3: Protection from Quartering Troops. The government can't force you to provide housing to soldiers.

A4: Protection from Unreasonable Search and Seizure. Having a 'hunch' isn't enough, you have to have undeniable proof.

A5: Protection from Double Jeopardy, meaning you can't be tried for the same crime twice.

A6: Right to a speedy and Just trail

A7: The right to a jury in cases where the damages exceed $20 USD

A8: Protection from excessive and cruel punishment. AKA: Bob Dole stole a piece of gum, you can't hang him for it.

A9: A little confusing, but essentially this: Just because a right isn't explicitly stated in the Constitution, doesn't mean it isn't protected... As long as you aren't infringing on the rights of others.

A10: Powers not specifically stated to be held by the States or Federal Government are held by the people.

It's actually interesting how far reaching this goes. Sometimes people in places like France list off American rights, thinking they have them as well...when they don't.
