    Wrong Dutchman, the 5th amendment was especially intended to prevent this prosecution of a person for the same crime in many levels of governemnt. A prosecution of a crime can only be done once by one branch of government. The 5th amendments was also intended to prevent the federal government from prosecuting individuals and only the states have the power to prosecute on federal laws.

    Anything beyond this indemnification rights is pure harassment, persecution, and terrorism breaching the rights of individuals. There is no argument to validate any justification the double jeopardy prosectuion is legal for each level of government, this a self imposed assumed empowerment not granted by the people or constitution.

    Supreme court opinions do not change any laws or repeal any laws and cannot use their opinions to create laws. The legal system of the USA is in complete violation of the Constitution and its intent limiting and restricting the powers of governemnt and gives only the people the power to prosecute by trial with a jury of their peers. The Constitutions deny governemtn any rights and gives only rights and powers to the people.

    The Fifth Amendment does not protect a person from being tried by two or more separate governments. Thus, both the federal government and the state government are able to charge and prosecute one person for the same criminal act, which is often the case for drug related crimes. As well, two or more states can prosecute and try a person for the same criminal act.

    The state and federal governments have different constitutions and rules of law and courts and jurisdictional rights overlapping Constitutional laws.

    More than likely the president has instructed to DOJ to get invloved now becasue Obama law and governemtn are separate governments and the Obama who declares he has governemnt independent power.

    The Patriot Act makes this country subject to at least 5 separate and distinct governemnt rulers who can act and operate outside the jurisdiction of each other as a government established by Congress and Legislation.

    Our 5 governments are (1)the written document of our forefathers for the people who are citizens, (2)Obama,(3) DOJ (4) Supreme Court Justices turned legislators, and (5)Department of Education all with overlapping independent and individual rights to the souls and taxes of man and beast in the USA.

    For 250 years we have been mislead by the Constitution that it was to be a single govnerment of the people by the people for the people of the United States of America. Government Rulers says we the people are wrong and that they are the only power to rule this nation, people cannot rule themselves, its unheard of.

    He may be guilty as sin, but as MP says, isn't this double jeopardy?

    Why isn't this considered double jeopardy?
