"Decency, security, and liberty alike
demand that government officials shall be
subjected to the same rules of conduct
that are commands to the citizen...
If the government becomes a lawbreaker,
it breeds contempt for law;
it invites every man to become a law unto himself;
it invites anarchy."
by:
Justice Louis D. Brandeis
(1856-1941) US Supreme Court Justice

Olmstead v. United States, 1928
