The Rights of the People: How Our Search for Safety Invades Our Liberties
by noteworthy at 12:07 pm EDT, May 15, 2011

Justice Robert H. Jackson:

Uncontrolled search and seizure is one of the first and most effective weapons in the arsenal of every arbitrary government.

David K. Shipler:

If we cannot mobilize sufficient concern about what we cannot see, then the invisible surveillance will continue undermining the Fourth Amendment without the resistance required to preserve our rights.

Publishers Weekly:

The wars on crime and terrorism have turned into a war on privacy and freedom ... In this first of two volumes, Pulitzer-winning journalist Shipler focuses on the Fourth Amendment's guarantees against unreasonable search and seizure, and finds violations that remind him of his days covering the Soviet Union.

Dan Carden:

Overturning a common law dating back to the English Magna Carta of 1215, the Indiana Supreme Court ruled Thursday that Hoosiers have no right to resist unlawful police entry into their homes.

In a 3-2 decision, Justice Steven David writing for the court said if a police officer wants to enter a home for any reason or no reason at all, a homeowner cannot do anything to block the officer's entry.

Jerry Weinberger:

So convenient a thing it is to be a reasonable creature, since it enables one to find a reason for every thing one has a mind to do.

Rebecca Brock:

People say to me, "Whatever it takes." I tell them, It's going to take everything.
