Supreme Court - "Dred Scott Decision" - You shall not be free nor be free to vote - Justice Roberts

Said more bluntly "The Supreme Court took a man and made him into a slave."

Wikipedia -

Déjà vu - all over again

Scott's temporary residence outside Missouri did not bring about his emancipation under the Missouri Compromise, which the court ruled unconstitutional as it would improperly deprive Scott's owner of his legal property.
While Chief Justice Roger B. Taney had hoped to settle issues related to slavery and Congressional authority by this decision, it aroused public outrage and deepened sectional tensions between the northern and southern U.S. states. President Abraham Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation in 1863, and the post-Civil War ThirteenthFourteenth andFifteenth amendments nullified the decision.
