Extinction of Exclusion?


One of our clearest thinkers on crime and the criminal law, William Tucker, has a piece in the latest Weekly Standard, now put online, observing that the Supreme Court may be just one vote away from reversing the 45-year old exclusionary rule imposed by the Court on the states in cases where the Fourth Amendment was (allegedly) violated.  I hope he’s right.  One more reason to hope for just one more George W. Bush appointee to the Court in the next two years.
