Transcript Who Should JucP "The moment an American draftee is transferred to duty in a foreign country, all (constitutional) protections are cut off as by a knife," says: SENATOR JENNER JENNER: Our country i- faced with the necessity of drafting millions of young men. Our youth accept the difficulties of military service, because a barbarous dictator-hip threatens the world and reserves its greatest hatred for the I nited Mate-. Hut our young men in the services are now subject to a new and cruel hazard. Our government has agreed bv treat) that Vmerican -erv ice men on foreign soil, who are charged with a crime, shall be tried under the laws of the country where thev arc stationed, and not according to the laws of the I nited States. Americans are in -civile in every part of the world: in England. France. Cermany, in Japan, Free China, Korea, the Near Fast and parts of Africa. Our government has agreed that Americans who were born and Im,light up in Texas or Kansas or Georgia or Massachusetts may, if the) are accused of a crime, be tried under the laws of Italy or Cambodia or Iraip or wherever thev mav be stationed, though llicv men not even know what those laws forbid. But the greatest trouble conie- because Americans possess, in their law, a very precious jewel, enjoyed by few other nations. In our country, a man cannot be arrested without a warrant, dul) signed by a magistrate. He cannot be kept in jail without a clear-cut charge. He must be allowed hail, and it cannot be excessive. If he i- luld in jail for any length id time, anyone, and that mean- any private citizen, may go into a court, and ei-K. lor a habeas corpus order. Hiose tvve. Latin words, which we hear so often, mean lhat. in our country, officials men not hold a man in jail hv their own decision. The) must produce the accused in public court, ami prove to tlie satisfaction e,| em independent judge that thev have' evidence enough to bring him te. a speed) trial. Once the accused pe-rseen i- brought to trial, tin- court musl assume he i- innocent until he' i- proven guilty. If he i- convicted, he is protected against any "cruel and u" k_7 punishments." , The problem lhal concerns our service and vou. hi- father or mother, or vv" ) brother, is this: The moment an \'n .. folCxor moment an transferred t" duty in .- country, all those- protections are cut o" rj .1 knife. 1 wish there were sonic drama!1' to mark thi- change, as a man marks w'P ' . e I- ll i trfrfimlt, Koes Inim -unlight lo -heuleiw.
