The preservation of individual civil rights stands as one of the pillars of American society. From the signing of the Constitution, which guaranteed that Americans would be protected from unjust discrimination and abuse from the government, to Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation, to the Civil Rights Movement, where millions of Americans demanded the equal treatment under the law owed them by our system, this country has a history of moving towards a greater respect for civil rights.
Yet, every day, individuals suffer from civil rights abuses. This issue has scarcely been more relevant than it is today. With heightened security at many locations across society due to the threat posed by international terrorism, heightened racial profiling, the limiting and challenging of our freedoms of expression, and unjust treatment by police agencies rampant, your civil rights are as much at risk today as at any point in American history. Beyond this, individuals of all races, colors, creeds, religions, and sexual orientations face unacceptable discrimination in the workplace and in society at large. So often, it seems, those with power and influence, whether in the government or in the private sector, trample on the fact that all of us inherently possess the same rights as human beings.
Anthony Macri takes civil rights violations especially seriously. As a scholar of our Bill of Rights, he acutely understands and faithfully defends that which each of us possess in the United States.
When dealing with police agencies and the like, we have rights against cruel and unusual punishment, torture, unwarranted searches and seizures, and self-incrimination. We have a right to due process and to a speedy trial by our peers, so that we are not arrested, detained, or injured unnecessarily or for inordinate periods of time by the police. If you have been maltreated by any police agency, held without being charged with a crime, subjected to illegal methods of interrogation, denied your right to legal counsel, or if your property has been searched, confiscated, wiretapped, or in any way acted upon without a court-issued warrant, your civil rights have been violated. Your Fourth, Fifth, Sixth, and Seventh Amendment rights specifically may be in jeopardy, as may your rights under Article I, Paragraphs 7-14 of the New Jersey State Constitution. Despite the seriousness of taking on any government agency, Anthony Macri is not intimidated. He will act aggressively against any police agency that has abused your civil rights, always keeping in mind that while the police serve a crucial purpose in society and ought to be treated with the utmost respect, they are granted legal authority over us as citizens, and therefore must be vigilantly kept in check.
It is equally important that you realize the many other civil liberties you have. You have a right to freedom of expression in speech, press, religious affiliation, public assembly, and in virtually any other way which does not invade the rights of others. You also have a right to vote, and can never legally be turned away from polling places for reasons other than your failure to register. You have a right to be treated without discrimination in all public places, regardless of your circumstances. If any government agency has violated these basic liberties, to which all Americans are entitled, contact Anthony Macri as soon as possible. Few, if any, attorneys possess Macri's deep understanding of your civil rights and the aggressive commitment it takes to stand up for them before powerful institutions.
Finally, you have rights in the workplace which must be observed with equal respect. Under the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and much subsequent legislation, you have a right to equal opportunity employment. You may not be discriminated against or harassed because of your race, color, creed, religion, or sexual orientation. This is another area with which Anthony Macri has particular expertise. It is a hot-button issue in today's society, and you should not hesitate to advocate for your rights in the workplace. No one can interfere with your ability to support yourself and your family for unjust reasons.
