Johns Creek Police Department 4/9/14 "Incident/Investigation Report"
Johns Creek Police Department 4/9/14 "Incident/Investigation Report" which falsely states police assisted U.S. Marshals in serving a warrant on Leonard Rowe
Leonard Rowe's Fourth Amendment Rights were violated when, without a warrant, he was forcefully taken from his home (kidnapped) on April 9, 2014 by the U.S. Marshals Service assisted by the Johns Creek Police Department.
The police report filed by Reporting Officer J.F. Marshall falsely stated: "On 04-09-14 I was dispatched to 1006 Bent Tree Lane to assist U.S. Marshals serving a warrant on Leonard Rowe. Deputy U.S. Marshal Cosby made contact with Mr. Rowe at the front door and took him into custody without incident. Mr. Rowe was transported by U.S. Marshals. Nothing further."
The Fourth Amendment originally enforced the notion that "each man's home is his castle", secure from unreasonable searches and seizures of property by the government. It protects against arbitrary arrests, and is the basis of the law regarding search warrants, stop-and-frisk, safety inspections, wiretaps, and other forms of surveillance, as well as being central to many other criminal law topics and to privacy law.
The Fourth Amendment states: "The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized."
