image for US Legal System is 'Law Unto Itself'

Washington D.C.: In a damning criticism of the US legal system, Freedom Watch, a Washington based rights group, declared Monday that the legal system in the United States had become so all encompassing that it was now "a law unto itself".

Speaking in front of Freedom Watch's headquarters spokesman Peter Jackman pointed out what his group saw as a worrying trend in the US courts.

"Our research has revealed that courts the length and breadth of the United States are basing their legal rulings on a little known document called 'The United States Constitution'. It's been said that all other law falls under, and is subordinate to, that document. No law may contradict the Constitution.

"This leads us into dangerous territory. Imagine this nightmare scenario - if Congress enacts a statute that conflicts with this Constitution, the Supreme Court may find that law unconstitutional and declare it invalid. This constitution needs to be torn to shreds. And fast."
