What is the Bill of Rights?
The first amendment states that you can have the freedom of any religion. The government can't say you must believe in one religion. You can believe in any god you please and gather together the government can't stop you.
In 2010, court ruled that the government cannot make laws that limit spending.
The second amendment states that you can have a weapon for the protection of citizens. Also, the government can't stop citizens from owning a weapon and using it if necessary.
The third amendment states that citizens deserve the right to not have soldiers come barge in your house and demand to live and eat their.
The fourth amendment states that the police must have a search warrant if they don't they must have a good reason and say exactly where they're going to search and what their searching for with the permission of the owner of the home.
1971- Offers a good example. This case, Attorney General issued the search warrant for a murder investigation.
The Grand Jury declares enough evidence to charge you with with only one. No one can take away your life freedom or belongings with out trial first.
When having a charge with a crime your trail should be held as soon as possible. You can't sit in jail for years waiting for your trail to happen. Government has to tell you exactly what you are accused of and who is making the charges.
You can have a Jury settle civil cases including a lot of money. When the court decides, you can not be brought up in any other court.
Shouldn't be demanded to pay to much for a bail or unreasonable fines. Government can't punish you in a cruel way.
Even if these rights aren't listed doesn't mean these rights can be taken away. Even if they're not mentioned here or not.
If the constitution doesn't give a certain power it does not need to be say it if the states can't do something.
