That Shameful Technicality, the Bill of Rights

Vertical Ben won a suppression hearing in Magistrate Court today, bringing comfort to two young men who were minding their business smoking marijuana in one of our local motel rooms when John Law burst in.

The judge shook his head sadly as he granted our side relief, then turned to the now-free young men with a scowl and said,

"You got off because of the Constitution - that's nothing to be proud of!"

That pesky Fourth Amendment rears its ugly head again! (At least in Idaho, where it's still alive.)

Keep up the great work!
