    those who are abused by the police, the criminal "justice" system, landlords, employers, etc. don't have any of the above
    Yes, if it's your word against that of a police officer, the judges tend to give the police the benefit of the doubt. So that is their end run around your rights. (I am not implying all police are bad, just explaining how the ones that are that are get away with it). Also, police can be very intimidating, which gets people to consent to searches when they might not want to. (or sign confessions, etc.)
