"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." Theodore Roosevelt

Behold the Power of Big Brother

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. law enforcement officials captured more than 10,000 fugitives around the country in a week-long drive to round up some of the most violent criminals who had previously evaded justice.

U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales said on Thursday a total of 10,340 fugitives were captured by an operation led by the U.S. Marshals Service between April 4 and April 10 -- about 10 times as many fugitives who were arrested the same period a year ago.

We might find out some day soon, the nature of these people's crimes. Sure, plenty of the arrests will be proper and justified; I'm willing to bet that many people have been arrested erroneously.

Where are they being detained?
Where will they ultimately be held?
Under what conditions?
For how long?
How long have they already been held?
Is Habeus Corpus being followed?
