More on Law Enforcement Breaking the Law

Yesterday, Yasmeen pointed to a case before the Virginia Supreme Court which addresses whether an arrest makes the subsequent search unconstitutional if the arrest was a violation of Virginia law but not, in-and-of-itself, unconstitutional.

I addressed this issue somewhat while discussing Devenpeck here (read the comments too). I think Yasmeen is probably right in her assesment as to the probable outcome of the pending case.
