It allows people to be taken away “indefinitely” and forever for being a “terrorist”. Since almost anyone can be considered a “terrorist” if they are disruptive in any way, the laws allows for unlimited, unrestricted, unprotected detention and removal off all DOMESTIC threats, as loosely defined by the police state, bureaucrats, lawyers, prosecutors or even average people.
