What Could Be Ahead Thinking Out Loud

If after this national 4 week period of social separation there is no definitive move towards a solution in this nation related to the spread of the coronavirus. Then you can expect this nation to begin sending military forces into major metropolitan areas to implement martial law. This move towards some form of martial law will most likely affect the upcoming two major political parties national conventions.

habeas corpus:

a writ requiring a person under arrest to be brought before a judge or into court, especially to secure the person's release unless lawful grounds are shown for their detention.

The suspension of habeas corpus has occurred during the Civil War and 9/11. If this coronavirus continues to impact our nation. Don’t be surprised if Donald Trump suspends this right for American citizens. Especially since many courts are closed down due the virus. In that event law enforcement officers will be able to arrest people without concern to respecting their rights. This will especially be an injustice to the least educated population of Americans. Since they are more likely to be illiterate, or lacking the information necessary to understand these legal terms.

So, if you are caught out in the streets without government authorization during the suspension of habeas corpus. You can be incarcerated without benefit of a trial. This could happen if this social separation doesn’t work and the coronavirus continues to spread. Also, if the economy of America slips into a huge depression which causes significant shortages of food or other necessities.
