1. Megaupload Seizures Jan 23, 2012, 16:42 jdreyer
 
I'm not a lawyer, but I don't see how the seizure of property and shutting down of the site don't violate the US Constitution's fifth amendment:

No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.

Emphasis mine. Maybe someone can explain?
