Arrest Warrants and Freedom
In the United States of America, there are systems in place that prevent police officers from overusing their power. America was founded on the principle that every individual has a right to exercise his freedom. This means that he can do whatever he wants with his body. He can do this however he wants to do it, as long as it does not infringe on the rights of others.
For this reason, authorities must obtain a warrant in order to take an individual into custody. In the United States, a warrant is usually issued by a court judge, but it can also be issued by the chambers of the US Congress.
In order to issue a warrant, the applicant must present a signed and sworn affidavit showing probable cause that (a) a specific crime had been committed and (b) the person(s) named on the document or in the warrant have committed the alleged crime.
Probable cause has many different meanings. In this particular case, it means that there is a “reasonable amount of suspicion, supported by circumstances sufficiently strong to justify a prudent and cautious person’s belief that certain facts are probably true.
Freedom is a very important aspect of American culture. Citizens of this country have fought for this right for the past several decades. The law process is ever-changing as the social landscape reforms over time.
