Yeah, it's kinda sad.

"We won't let the terrorists win!"

They already have.

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.

From what i learned in 3 months of living there, there was the constitution, and then they decided to amend it (edit it). they created something called the bill of rights, and it has 12 amendments if i'm not wrong. The second is a very famous one, allowing americans to own guns. Correct me if i'm wrong.

We actually have 27 Amendments (One of which repealed another).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.

The first 10 amendmentments to the Constitution are known as the bill of rights.
1. Freedom of Speech,Press, and Assembly. (Can share any opinion, press can report on anything, people can gather whenever they want)
2. Right to keep and bare arms. (Can own firearms)
3. Protection from quartering of troops. (Don't have to let soldiers occupy your house/propoerty)
4. Protection from unreasonable search and seizure. (Government and police can't just take your stuff or arrest you with no reason)
5. Right to due process, eminent domain, and reedom from self-incrimination and double-jeopardy. (Innocent until proven guilty, can't take your land without compensating you for it, you don't have to testify against yourself, and you can't be tried more than once for the same crime)
6. Right to a trial by a jury of your peers (guilt determeined by consensus of 12 random literate adults from your area after hearing evidence)
7. Civil trial by jury. (court cases of dispute between two citizens can be determined by jury of their peers)
8. Prohibition of excessive bail and cruel and unusual punishment. (bail must be equitable to crime charged and punishment can not be "creative" or cruel or sadistic in nature)
9. Protection of non-specific rights. (Just because we don't identify a specific right in the constitution or its amendments does not mean the people are denied said right)
10. Powers of State and People (Those powers not specifically reserved to the Federal Government or the States are reserved for the people)

Fun fact, when the second amendment actually means the public should be allowed the same arms as the military. That means you should all be allowed UAVs and nukes

It's our rights. They are what give us the freedom of speech, freedom of (and from) religion, the right to bear arms, you get the idea

Essentially, the Constitution set up how the government is run (Created all the offices, made the Senate/House of Representatives, made the supreme court, checks and balances, etc.) and the bill or rights limits what congress can do within the parameters that the constitution sets.

^This is a really basic overview
