Fourth Amendment and \”fruits of the tree\”
Fourth Amendment and \”fruits of the tree\”: The fourth amendment grants for the people’s freedom to their persons or effects and papers against unreasonable seizures and unwarranted searches. It calls for the protection of that right and limits its violation, such that, issuance of warrants shall not be deemed legally approved if they lack probable cause that is supported by affirmation or oath, which specifically describes the location and exact point to be searched or belongings to be held or seized.

The doctrine of the poisonous tree and fruits are well interconnected with Barnes actions of using an approach based on his own bias to uncover a suspect. His wrong approach to the law led to his entrapment in the same law that he fought so hard to implement as a detective. The law justifies an action regardless of its morality because it holds a lot of variables in question so that it can be in a position to give the most just decision.
