Chipping away at the 4th Amendment
The United States Supreme Court in Utah v. Strieff held an unlawful stop may be legitimized by the later discovery of a traffic warrant. A disturbing finding that only strengthens the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals similar position in Mazuca v. State. 375 S.W.3d 294 (Tex. Crim. App. 2012). As we enter the latter half of this decade, our highest courts seem all to willing to bend over backwards and uphold unlawful arrests.
