This perception is a flawed overestimation of the results of the rule’s principles. The principle in this case is that the exclusionary rule serves to protect the rights of the accused, and is specifically designed to create an incentive for police officials to obtain evidence without violating the rights of the accused. Should it be found that the evidence obtained was done so illegally, then the evidence is inadmissible in a court of law. The point at which most desire to attack the exclusionary rule is that it enables those who are found with incriminating items to walk free. The most ardent critics of the exclusionary rule underestimate the good done by the rule, while appealing to commonly held paranoia of losing a war on crime in order to exaggerate its weaknesses.
The ‘exclusionary rule’ was created to put under limitations the Federal officials and United States courts as they exercise their powers and authority. Additionally, it is in place to see that people maintain their own privacy and rights guaranteed in the Fourth Amendments. It also allows people to secure their premises, person, papers and other effects from unwarranted and unreasonable searches and seizures under the pretense of law. The United States constitution does not allow or tolerate police searches and seizures without warrants and therefore illegal searches and seizure unless there is a good reason for it. This article will argue that the provision for ‘exclusionary rule’ has deterred the police from harassing innocent citizens particularly the minorities groups and defendants too with illegal and unwarranted searches and seizures.
Deontological theorists argue that coercive interrogation should be unequivocally impermissible as it entails out-right violation of human dignity, (Arrigo, 2004). According to Posner & Vermeule (2005), the idea of coercive interrogation is paradoxical in that the law enforcers maintain its legality while simultaneously using it under the guise of preventing dangerous criminal suspects from harming other people in the society. Posner & Vermuele (2005) however denounce the deontological view against coercive interrogation by arguing that it is sometimes permissible and necessary although law enforcers need not deny that coercive interrogation is inherently a severe moral evil. Their denunciation is informed by the fact an assertion that sometimes even grave evils are necessary and justified due to the inescapability of tragic choices, although a violation of rights. Posner & Vermuele (2005) conclude that although coercive interrogation is a severe ethical and moral evil that should not be out-rightly permissible, but rather one that should be subjected to rules-with-exceptions based complex regulatory frameworks.
From a constitutional ethical standpoint, the fact that the surveillance breaches the protections granted by the fourth amendment, where it states that “The right of the people…against unreasonable searches and seizures shall not be violated…”, and by the fact that the surveillence “chilling effect” has on the people’s right to free speech and press show that the government is overstepping its bounds limiting the privacy and freedom of its citizens. Mass surveillance therefore goes against the ideals of a democratic society, in which individual people capable of making a decision on their accord.
Seeing that the Miranda protections should have been applied in this particular case the burden to proofing that the Miranda safeguards were implemented lies on the State. Since Jared was not read his Miranda rights prior to being under a custodial interrogation the State will be unable to prove that the safeguards of Miranda were upheld. Therefore, the self-incriminating statements made by Jared Jones should be suppressed because they were obtained through a violation of this Fifth Amendment right, to not self-incriminate.
Following common laws position of an accused right to silence, the concept was clearly created to provide safeguards for suspects. For instance, in Rice v Connolly  we can see that the accused is under no general duty to assist police officers with their inquiries. Besides from protection from self-incrimination, suspects are normally advised not to answer questions that will aid in doing the prosecutors job for them. Moreover, a suspect was not seen as a compellable witness at trial. A compellable witness is legally required to give evidence to a case.
Despite Mill's conviction that act-utilitarianism is an acceptable and satisfying moral theory there are recognized problems. The main objection to act-utilitarianism is that it seems to be too permissive, capable of justifying any crime, and even making it morally obligatory to do so.

“They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.”- Benjamin Franklin. Technically speaking, internet censorship is difficult to achieve. Proponents of this measure seem to have neglected the fact that putting in place a system of surveillance requires the establishment of clear, unalterable rules. But often, such a task can be almost unfeasible since it is quite problematical to define precisely the information that is supposed to be blocked. In the context of hate speech for example, it is important to acknowledge the existence of a line between criticism, whether it is constructive or not, and pure animosity.

If the interrogation continues without the presence of an attorney, the state has a heavy burden to demonstrate that the defendant knowingly and intelligently waived his privilege. A valid waiver is not presumed simply from silence. Warnings are a judicial prophylactic to protect the fundamental right against compelled self-incrimination because of the oppressive nature of station house questioning. This case does not hamper police officers in investigating crime because general on-the-scene questioning is not affected. The majority notes that once an individual chooses to remain silent or asks to first see an attorney, any interrogation should cease.
