* Civil rights should not be violated on our streets. Yet they are sometimes, often on video. That is a problem. *
* When civil rights are violated on our streets, there must be justice in our courts, for both correction and deterrence. Yet there isn't. That is a BIG problem. *
We can and must fix those two things. We will.

Bear in mind that over 700,000 police officers process more than 10,000,000 arrests annually, and most of that work is valid law enforcement. So bravo to all of our good officers who manage a tough job every day.
We are focused on exceptions, the errors; whether negligent, inadvertent, intentional or malicious. And we are all human, there will be errors. There are errors on our streets, and errors in our courts. The Constitution provides correction.
"The brilliance of the Constitution is that it was written by bright people to protect the rights of all people, to rein in abuses of power, and to provide checks and balances on power. It was written that way because when the nation was forming, nobody knew whether officeholders would be of their preferred party, and nobody knew what form law enforcement would take. Yet they knew human nature.
And that is the context in which we must consider Constitutional questions today, especially regarding 4th Amendment protections; because violations inflict enormous damage into good lives."
- Tracy Williams
On these pages you can learn more:
- Know your rights. See examples of rights violations; because violators will not admit they violated your rights, will suggest that violations are rare, and claim that violations don't inflict much damage. Tens of thousands of citizens learn every year that these claims are false.
- Understand what to do when your rights are violated. Be aware of the peculiar protections, special for police officers, that our courts have created to absolve officers of liability for nearly all civil rights violations, even those documented on video. This is wrong, offends common sense, and completely ignores "Equal Justice Under Law". There must be truth and justice.
Only justice provides correction and compensation for damage done, and only justice provides deterrence against future violations.
And justice can be provided in a way consistent with the healthy and respectful law enforcement that is needed to stop crime and keep our communities safe.
Our Constitution says we must find that balance, and we can.
The Constitution of the United States, 4th Amendment:
"The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized."
"The right of the people to be secure...against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated..."
JUSTICE IS RARE
"The Court's jurisprudence, I am concerned, sets the balance too heavily in favor of police unaccountability to the detriment of Fourth Amendment protection." - Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, concurring in DC v Wesby, 138 SC 577, 594 (2018)
To fix this, we have issued The Supreme Court Challenge. Legislatures must act too.
The Fourth Amendment Alliance, "4A", is a 501(c)(3) educational public charity, dedicated to promotion and protection of the civil rights of citizens, particularly those written into the Fourth Amendment to the US Constitution.

The US Constitution and the rights of citizens it established must be restored and protected if America is to persevere as an exceptional nation.
