The Fourth Amendment Alliance, Inc.
"Until the Constitutional civil rights of American citizens are respected by officers on the streets, and protected by our courts...!"
Respect for civil rights. Truth. Justice.
These are reasonable expectations of citizens in America when when those citizens interact with any government official, especially when that interaction involves police officers who carry weapons purchased by citizens, who were trained at the expense of citizens, and who have arrest power and other powers granted to them by citizens. Those powers must not be abused. When those powers are abused, whether maliciously or negligently, citizens must be able to find justice in our courts, for our courts are the protectors of our Constitutional civil rights.
We support the rule of law. And all Supreme Court justices agree on the importance of and preeminence of the law, which begins with the Constitution.
"I don't believe that we should bend the Constitution under any circumstance. It says what it says. We should do honor to it."
- Justice Sonia Sotomayor
"It is your Constitution that establishes the rule of law."
- Justice Amy Coney Barrett
There is no political or other divide between Americans who all enjoy and share the civil rights created by that Constitution.
The Fourth Amendment Alliance is an educational alliance, dedicated to promotion and protection of the civil rights of citizens, particularly those rights written into the Fourth Amendment to the US Constitution.
"The right of the people to be secure in their persons...shall not be violated..."
"The right of the people to be secure...against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated..."
The Fourth Amendment Alliance was formed by citizens who have:
1) from experience and broad research, clear observations of those (hopefully rare) occasions when police officers and other government officials abuse their powers to deny and violate the Constitutional civil rights of citizens, and
2) from those experiences and research a keen understanding of the challenges citizens face when taking the correct and civil path to seeking, through our courts, justice and restitution for the serious damages done to citizens when officers violate civil rights.
No more Americans should suffer the damage that has been endured by so many whose rights were violated…and who received no justice in American courts.
Citizens must have justice and restitution when rights are violated, whether those civil rights were violated maliciously or negligently. Our objective is to ensure that citizens know their civil rights, know how to recognize when civil rights are violated, and know how to seek restitution if something unfortunate happens.
The US Constitution and the rights of citizens it establishes must be protected if America is to persevere as an exceptional nation.
