The question is, should the AAT exist at all...?

Magna Carta - clause 39

No free man shall be seized or imprisoned, or stripped of his rights or possessions, or outlawed or exiled, or deprived of his standing in any other way, nor will we proceed with force against him, or send others to do so, except by the lawful judgment of his equals or by the law of the land
In my opinion, the AAT only has jurisdiction if you consent to its jurisdiction. If you don't the only legal recourse available to the authorities is a court with a jury.

Of course, why let a bunch of time-honoured law get in the road of a legal prosecution...?
