Judge Napolitano on the 4th Amendment (5-17-2011)


The Magna Carta
Abuses by King John caused a revolt by nobles who compelled him to execute this recognition of rights for both noblemen and ordinary Englishmen. It established the principle that no one, including the king or a lawmaker, is above the law.

52. If anyone has been dispossessed or removed by us, without the legal judgment of his peers, from his lands, castles, franchises, or from his right, we will immediately restore them to him...

Bill of Rights Amendment IV
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

“"The liberties of our country, the freedoms of our civil Constitution are worth defending at all hazards; it is our duty to defend them against all attacks. We have received them as a fair inheritance from our worthy ancestors. They purchased them for us with toil and danger and expense of treasure and blood. It will bring a mark of everlasting infamy on the present generation – enlightened as it is – if we should suffer them to be wrested from us by violence without a struggle, or to be cheated out of them by the artifices of designing men." -Samuel Adams”

All we have to do is get Ron

All we have to do is get Ron Paul elected as President, then he can put Judge Nap on the Supreme Court.

Freedom Wins!

Excellent video.

The Judge is doing a great service for America on this show.

Thanks for posting.

Oh, if only...

The wonderful lawyers who wrote the 4th Amendment gave the government then and now all it needs to do as it wishes. The exclusive authority to interpret what the US Constitution and multitude of laws mean and some very specific language within the 4th Amendment itself in one word; "UNREASONABLE"

It doesn't matter what you think is 'unreasonable'. It only matters what the people in control of the government think is 'unreasonable'.

tell that to king Barry and all the kings men.

and the courts
