SAY GOOD BYE TO THE 4TH AMENDMENT

BY: LEON KWASI KUNTUO-ASARE

In a horrendous miscarriage of justice, the Supreme Court of the United States studied a criminal case from Utah, in which evidence was collected illegally by police officers to determine whether it was constitutional for police evidence collected unlawfully to be used in a court of law.

In a 5-3 ruling, the Supreme Court ruled that ” Evidence does not violate the Fourth Amendment because the evidence seized weakened the unlawful stop”

According to news one:

“Justice Sonia Sotomayor disagreed, and says stops like this are all too familiar for people of color. In her dissent, she uses James Baldwinโ€˜s The Fire Next Time, W.E.B. Du Boisโ€˜s The Souls of Black Folk, and Ta-Nehisi Coatesโ€™ Between the World and Me to support her argument.”

This decision will undoubtedly disproportionately affect the daily lives of ethnic minorities and their treatment by cops.
