City of Oakland Fires Officers Who Falsified Arrest Warrants

Earlier this week the U.S. Supreme Court struck a blow against the Constitution . The court determined that evidence seized in a unlawful arrest may be used against defendants in some instances.

Well luckily, the U.S. Constitution has not been completely been disregarded. The City of Oakland fired 11 officers for falsifying search warrants . Officers had lied about drugs having been confirmed as drugs through laboratory tests. Lawsuits had been filed alleging constiutional rights had been violated.

Regardless of how Oakland got to this point, they are willing to remedy the violations by terminating the officers. That does show integrity and faith that our constitution despite being eroded does still exist to serve a purpose.
