U.S. Supreme Court rules 5-3 that police may use evidence found in illegal stops

On Monday, the United States Supreme Court sided with the state of Utah on a Fourth Amendment search case, ruling that police can use evidence of a crime in court from an unconstitutional search if they find the suspect has one or more outstanding arrest warrants.

But it’s the dissenting opinion in the case that has the Internet talking.

The Court voted 5-to-3 in Utah v. Strieff to reverse a decision of the Utah Supreme Court on an earlier case.
