A move in Virginia to rein in government powers and bolster the Fourth Amendment – and halt a perceived emerging police state – may have stalled in committee, but supporters aren’t giving up and have now turned to Capitol Hill for redress, pushing for a constitutional correction.

“We now live in a soft police state because the courts have weakened the Fourth Amendment so much,” said Mark Fitzgibbons, a constitutional attorney and leading voice behind Virginia’s SJ 302 and HJ 578, the “‘Fourth Amendment’ for the 21st Century” introduced into the General Assembly a few weeks ago, in an email to WND.
