Letter: Police need training on what violates constitutional rights

March 27, 2013 

How do police justify their jobs? I thought the slogan was protect and serve. It should be changed to tax and investigate. It seems to me the investigation is a violation of our civil rights.

We should be able to drive down the road and not get asked for papers. When does the Fourth Amendment do any good? I think the police need be retrained on what is a constitutional stop and what is not!

Soon we will all be subject to Big Brother, and he is watching everything. Why can't we go into a court and record the judges but they can record us? The court system is there for profit not for the better of our communities.
