The Supreme Court just handed police total legal immunity to use evidence gathered illegally

The United States Constitution is under a perpetual state of attack, and now the Fourth Amendment has been targeted by the federal government.

The Supreme Court recently ruled that “evidence of an alleged crime can be used against a defendant even if police did something inappropriate or even illegal to obtain it.” This completely violates the Fourth Amendment, which prevents unreasonable searches and seizures, in addition to requiring police officers to acquire warrants.

The Free Thought Project reports that, “In a split 5-3 decision, the justices voted to reinstate the drug-related convictions of Joseph Edward Strieff. In the case of Strieff, he was illegally detained during a ‘concededly unconstitutional detention,’¬†which eventually led to the discovery of drugs inside his vehicle.”

It’s a shame that our freedoms as American citizens seem to be taken away at an alarming rates — and the amendments we thought were protecting those freedoms are constantly being trampled over by those in power. If the Supreme Court is willing to look past these rights in particular, then where do they draw the line? At what point will they determine that their behavior violates the United States Constitution? Apparently only when it fits their agenda.

Sadly, the federal government has become less and less concerned about the Bill of Rights. They’re constantly looking to infringe on the rights of American citizens who just want their basic freedoms. Our Founding Fathers would be rolling over in their graves if they could see how completely bastardized their carefully written words had become.

We, as patriots, have to stand up to this form of tyranny and say no to the incoming police state. We used to be called the Land of the Free. We should consider returning to that moniker.
