"The Government As A Lawbreaker"

US Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis:
Olmstead v. United States, (1928)

Follow Book & Flag

If the Government becomes a lawbreaker, it breeds contempt for law; it invites every man to become a law unto himself; it invites anarchy. To declare that, in the administration of the criminal law, the end justifies the means ... would bring terrible retribution. Against that pernicious doctrine this Court should resolutely set its face."

United States Supreme Court Justice Loius Brandeis: Olmstead v. United States, (1928)
