From the Back Cover
The Constable Has Blundered: The Exclusionary Rule, Crime, and Corruption examines and explains how the exclusionary rule undermines the purposes of the criminal justice system, increases crime rates, dispenses unequal justice, and encourages police corruption. Professor Signorelli uses concrete examples and cases to demonstrate the connections between the rule and its problematic consequences. The book explains how unequal treatment of defendants, denial of justice to crime victims, and perjury by police officers to circumvent the rule taint the criminal justice system, and how a tainted justice system spreads ill effects throughout society. Recent Supreme Court decisions have limited the application of the rule, and some legal scholars have been predicting that the Court is close to overturning the rule. The author makes a strong case for eliminating the rule or severely restricting its application, and at the same time, he shows how other remedies work more effectively to deter police from violating constitutional rights pertaining to search and seizure and interrogation practices. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

As I have hated the police and still have a bit of bias against them, of course from personal confrontation, confrontation of those of family members, and stories of confrontation by associates and friends. I can most certainly now understand it from the officers side of the law and that is only through this book. I have heard how hard it is time and time again, but this book put me write in the officers shoes, the prosecutor shoes, even the criminal shoes and that is the reality of things. As people say"YOU NEVER KNOW HOW HARD MY JOB IS UNTIL YOU WALK IN MY SHOES". We as a society can do so much harm to ourselves and too those here to protect us; it is astonishing. There is never a write answer or the write thing to do, but this book sheds a light an understanding better said than anything I've read regarding the justice system.
My hat off to the writer. (better promotions is definitely needed)
