Supreme Court Challenge (issued 2020)

Restore Fourth Amendment civil rights protections to citizens!

Supreme Court: Take up any case and reestablish the civil rights protections the Constitution intended.

Correct the errors of the past that have caused justice to be denied for clear violations of the civil rights of American citizens.

Restore justice and truth to American courts.

Equal-Justice-Under-Law

It is too late for those who died, and too late those who have lost time and money to civil rights violations and were denied justice in our courts.

It is not too late for those who will have to interact with police officers next week!

It must be done, and everybody knows it.

"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)

"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, professional, age, gender, racial or other divide between Americans who all enjoy and share the civil rights created by that Constitution.

Justice Thurgood Marshall said, "Where you see wrong or injustice or inequality, speak out, because this is your country. This is your democracy."

There must be justice in our courts.

 

The Fourth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States:

“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 of affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”

Abraham Lincoln wrote while preparing for a speech in 1859, "The people of these United States are the rightful masters of both Congresses and courts. Not to overthrow the Constitution. But to overthrow the men who would pervert the Constitution."

The Constitution, the highest law of the land, grants civil rights to American citizens. Judges must protect those rights.

When judges fail to do so, judges must change.

"...SHALL NOT BE VIOLATED..."

John Marshall - Judicial Power

"Equal Justice Under Law". Our courts must find liability when civil rights are violated, and it must not matter if the violation was done by a police officer or any other citizen. "Violations are violations, and violations of civil rights deserve restitution."

Observe: It is not a plain either/or question of whether "the officer is liable, and financially decimated" or "the citizen receives no restitution for what everyone knows is clearly a civil rights violation".

SIMPLE SOLUTION: Unjoin "liability" from "financial restitution", in order to help our courts admit that officers use free will to violate civil rights and are liable, and then our courts can award restitution to citizens who deserve justice without damaging individual officers and the structures of civil society.   (See "Legislatures Challenge")

Simple. Smart. Solutions.

We the People

Yes, the Challenge is in our Courts.

Only justice in our courts will restore safety to our streets.

The Supreme Court must restore civil rights.
