Policing After Utah v. Strieff


Policing After Utah V. StrieffThe understaffed Supreme Court session came to a close this week. The results were a mixed bag, but the Utah v. Strieff decision was the most egregious. It allows for illegally obtained evidence to be used against citizens. The majority said a cop’s instincts are good enough to get around the cumbersome┬ábits of the Fourth Amendment that require probable cause and warrants.

The decision could also nullify over twenty years of Law & Order reruns.
