"He that would make his own liberty secure, must guard even his enemy from oppression; for if he violates this duty, he establishes a precedent that will reach to himself."


                    ~ Thomas Paine 



"Precedents are dangerous things; 


let the reins of government then be braced and held with a steady hand, 


and every violation of the Constitution be reprehended: 


If defective let it be amended, but not suffered to be trampled upon whilst it has an existence." 


              ~ George Washington



"Judicial judgment must take deep account...of the day before yesterday in order that yesterday may not paralyze today." 


               ~ Felix Frankfurter



When bad precedents are set,

the door to the bad will happen not just to the victim, but to anyone and future generations.
