because the American system to me alwayy has to be voted in by elected official of the supreme court.No.

And how can they? Just look at your own seem to have just been judge and jury for anyone that someone else has accused of anything -- and you apparently feel they are all guilty - or at least not law abidding! They are accused. Sometimes wrongly and by people who themselves are misdirected. Convoluted ideas like the one in your question actually indicate that the accused should have, because they need, more protection...

I guess your definition of "law abiding" is all those that haven't been accused? Because I'll wager that the list of people who haven't been "accused" of ....jay walking, cheating on taxes, or hurting someone or thing, a very different list than those who actually haven't done those things.

the citizens' rights tend to be protected

American citizens have always been concerned about their rights. However, as the perception that government has become more intrusive has been more accepted, people are resisting more.

This is more commonly known as expanding the right of the accused. One of the most famous ways the rights of the accused were strengthened was through requiring the accused to have their rights explained to them. "You have the right to remain silent, anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law..." are now famous words well known throughout the country.

The ConstitutionMore specifically the 6th Amendment

The constitution needed more to it, such as a bill of rights, to accurately protect the rights of its citizens for generations to come.

The original bill of rights contains 10 entries, each of these list more than 1 right, you would need to be more specific about the plethora of rights encompassed by the Bill of Rights.

voting, and serve on a jury. There's more though....

Privacy rights have NOT been upset by Congress. Congress IS the government.

At present convicted criminals are mainly warehoused. It is impossible to reform criminals into law-abiding citizens because they have never been formed into law abiding citizens in the first place. Instead, they go to prison and come out the same as when they went in. The main reason prisons exist is because schools do not have discipline. The class clowns and students who will not learn today become the prisoners of tomorrow. Prisons are the way they are so politicians can sound tough and get elected to office. Since nothing is done to reform criminals, punishment will not do that. So that leaves retribution.

A responsible citizen would vote. follow the law, and plenty more.

They would remain second class citizens for many more years.

Some states or people (like Virginia's Patrick Henry) thought that the Constitution did not adequately protect individual citizens' rights. Therefore, a Bill of Rights was added so more states would ratify the Constitution, and the American people were afforded more protection than with the Constitution alone. The Bill of Rights added a significant number of rights and privileges not given to citizens under the Constitution alone.

Citizens had many more rights than non-citizens.

an amendment. for example today we have the bill of rights that added more rights for the citizens of united states than for mostly government. The bill of rights is made out of 10 amendments

government official were patrician or on the landholding upper because he was in war with the geeksUPDATE: Plebeians were citizens not a person. they probably had less rights because they were only citizens, and Patricians were often royalty.
