Using the color of one's skin to excuse criminal behavior

Who did that?

The judge

Wrong; as I said, this judge merely applied a well established (albeit conceptually flawed) evidentiary principle. (Free clues: it's called the "exclusionary rule" and this judge didn't invent it.)

I don't mind if illegally obtained evidence is used.

Do you mind if the Fourth Amendment is violated?

The Fourth Amendment is meant to protect everyone. There are certainly more innocent people than guilty.

Would you agree with your statement even if evidence was presented against you, but was made up by someone you didn't even know? Therefore, the Fourth Amendment implies there be a certain standard of judgment on behalf of law enforcement.

Truth is truth. They are guilty as sin. Judicial tyrants set them loose to prey on innocents.

After you hang the drug dealers, we can determine whether or note to prosecute anyone who actually violated the Fourth Amendment. Those deported would have no say in the matter of course.

They don't arrest and subsequently don't report on the "misses."

I oppose deleting evidence because of how it was gained.

IOW, reward the cops and prosecution who break the law with a conviction? Let's not reward corruption, shall we?

That doesn't answer the question. Do you mind if the Fourth Amendment is violated?

It was neither an unreasonable search nor seizure, except for drug addicts and their enablers. They are deeply concerned.
