In 1679, King Charles the Second of England signed the Habeas Corpus Act. The full title — which we will now mangle…“Habeas corpus ad subjeciendum” — basically means “produce the body.” A writ of habeas corpus requires arresting officers to produce a suspect…explain why heʹs being detained…and release him if the court says so. The legal concept of habeas corpus — a new idea just three centuries ago — is that if you arrest somebody, youʹd better have a reason. King Charles effectively was promising his subjects not to throw somebody into hoosegow just because he felt like it.
