More on the decline of the Fourth Amendment

by wfgodbold

This time from the Cato Institute.

In her dissenting opinion in Kentucky v. King, Justice Ginsberg wrote,

“The court today arms the police with a way routinely to dishonor the Fourth Amendment’s warrant requirement in drug cases. In lieu of presenting their evidence to a neutral magistrate, police officers may now knock, listen, then break the door down, never mind that they had ample time to obtain a warrant.”

Read the whole article; it illustrates how much the fourth amendment has been destroyed on the altar of the drug war.
