A Refresher Course for the LAPD

by Thomas J. Saturday, Aug. 19, 2000 at 1:10 AM

Some useful study material for the LAPD...

Since it seems as if the majority of the officers of the LAPD (as well as the PDP and WDCPD and SPD...etc., ad nauseum) are suffering from a bit of memory loss concerning certain inalienable rights supposedly afforded citizens of the United States (or perhaps none of them actually managed to stay awake during their Jr. High Civics classes, who knows?,) I've taken upon myself to present them with some "crib notes" that might prove useful at a later (court) date...

The Bill of Rights

Article the third [Amendment I]



Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and

bear Arms, shall not be infringed.



Article the fifth [Amendment III]

of war, but in a manner to be prescribed by law.



Article the sixth [Amendment IV]



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.



Article the seventh [Amendment V]



No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offence to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.



Article the eighth [Amendment VI]



In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial

jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the Assistance of Counsel for his defence.



Article the ninth [Amendment VII]



In Suits at common law, where the value in controversy shall exceed twenty dollars, the right of trial by jury shall be preserved, and no fact tried by a jury, shall be otherwise re-examined in any Court of the United States, than according to the rules of the common law.



Article the tenth [Amendment VIII]



Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments

inflicted.



Article the eleventh [Amendment IX]



The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others

retained by the people.
