Mr. Galen: I wish you would have included the 4th Amendment as well. As a veteran 2+ decades cop, the concept of LEGAL search & seizure and getting young officers to understand that is probably one of the harder lessons to reach, re-teach and continue to maintain. And I wish citizens had a greater understanding of what they can and cannot expect. Cops do NOT always "get it right" when it comes to the 4th, and citizens often have an unrealistic expectation or definition of privacy. Good column though... No doubt we all have our favorites. I am what Libs would describe as a "gun nut," so off-duty the 2nd is a personal favorite, while on-duty the 4th gets my attention more.
