The Fourth and Eight Amendments
Protecting people's rights since 1791
The Fourth Amendment
Cameras are always searching and watching what people do.
Almost everyone needs a warrant to search a house, unless they have a really valid reason.
Cops often push their boundaries and try to enter homes without warrants.
The Eight Amendment
Excessive fines are not allowed.
Excessive bail (money to get our of jail) fines are prohibited.
Cruel and unusual punishment (like electric chairs, needles with poisons, hanging) are not allowed.
These two amendments are very important in securing the unity and safety of our nation. Without people's privacy, and power hungry, money crazy, fine imposing governments, our nation would surely crumble. The best we can do is abide by the laws and fight for our rights, so always fight for what you believe in!
