  •  I didn't get the snark, is it snarky to state the (0+ / 0-)

    facts now? Seriously here, what police powers does the Judiciary Branch weld?

    The enforcement duties fall upon the executive branches.  What I'd be curious about, can the executive branch be compelled into action? A contempt of court is enforced by whom again? Could "the people" collectively or individually arrest and/or imprison a non-compliant executive branch employee? Does that fall upon the AG? What if they refuse? What then? Is our "due process" limited to the next election cycle then? If so, then the "rule of law" is a charade.
