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 Baldwin‘s The Fire Next Time, W.E.B. Du Bois‘s The Souls of Black Folk, and Ta-Nehisi Coates’ 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.
