Caitlyn Bratton's insight:

I think this overview brings up yet again, the ongoing debate over Judicial Activism v. Judicial Restraint. The author of this case summary clearly favors Judicial Restraint. They believe that we must hold up the Constituion in all war crisis', to prevent from hurting others. However, the court acted on Judicial Activism in this case.

Korematsu v. United States

Korematsu v United States was a Supreme Court decision that upheld the conviction of Frank Korematsu for defying an order to be interned with other Japanese-Americans during World War II.
Caitlyn Bratton's insight:

I like this article, because I feel it shows that the Supreme Court may have been 'hypocritical' in their decision. We say that America stand for "Freedom, Liberty, and The Pursuit of Happiness", but in this case the Supreme Court ruled out individual rights as a second to the 'safety' of our country. This article also backs up the phrase of 'history repeats itself', for it adresses the Guantanamo situation today, a similar issue.

Korematsu v. United States (1944)

Caitlyn Bratton's insight:

I like this article because it gives a detailed description of both sides of the argument in this case-the majority and minority. It also makes me question the validity of the majority's statement. They say that it is 'okay' to undermine the constitution and inflict hardships on people, because hardships are just "A part of war". They do, however, back up this decision by saying they were acting in favor of the majority of the American people.

Caitlyn Bratton's insight:

This article raises a couple of questions about Judicial Review in a state of war. The Supreme Court went agaisnt the civil rights statement of the Constitution, justifying their actions by saying they were 'protecting the country'. But are we really protecting our country when we are accusing loyal citizens just by their hertiage? Should we be allowed to ignore the constitution in times of war?
