Sheldon Richman Biography

Title:
Senior Fellow at The Future of Freedom Foundation
Position:
Con to the question "Is the ACLU Good for America?"
Reasoning:

“The ACLU is worse than AWOL on the preventive detention of law-abiding people branded ‘mentally ill and dangerous to themselves or others.’ It enthusiastically supports such an atrocity as the ‘right to treatment.’ Sadly, the Bill of Rights is not for them. And let’s not forget that the ACLU is unaware that something comes between the First and Third Amendments.”
