The Pastor & the Policeman - the 4th Amendment

by Mary Greendale
September 28, 2018

The 4th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. What does it say? What does it mean? Is it still relevant? Join the Pastor and the Policeman for a LIVE discussion.

"The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized." (4th Amendment)

In these days of high surveillance and technology, the very definition of a search is changing. Enter the hosts of "The Pastor and the Policeman"  -  Bonnie Steinroeder, 20 years as a minister, and John Moore, 20 years in law enforcement. The show is all about the Bill of Rights in the 21st Century and will be discussed in terms of how they affect us day-to-day. This is a discussion - not an academic lecture - and would be good for high school students.

The Pastor and the Policeman will start on Holliston Cable Access TV on Monday, October 1st at 7:00 p.m. LIVE on Facebook.

The Oxford Press has created a series of short, readable books ("The Inalienable Rights") in which different experts discuss one Right that we as Americans have and how that Right is functioning today, post 9-11. The book that Bonnie and John will discuss on the first show is, "The Future of Foreign Intelligence, Privacy and Surveillance in a Digital Age," by Laura K. Donohue. Find the complete list of the 17 books, https://global.oup.com/academic/search?q=inalienable+rights+series&cc=us&lang=en

Each show will relate to one of the books in the series, and the hosts will draw upon their professional and personal experiences to discuss the material. And to repeat, you can participate via the Holliston Cable Access Facebook page. Watch the promo video on FB right now.  https://www.facebook.com/HollistonCableAccess/videos/301753110409329/

The Pastor and the Policeman will also air live on television channels Verizon 32 and Comcast 8, BUT if you want to participate, you need to watch on Facebook where you can write-in questions and comments for the hosts to respond to in real time. The show will be available online as Video on Demand once it is aired, so you will never have to miss a show.

FYI - John Moore is no longer on the Holliston Police Department. He is a practicing attorney.

Good luck with the show!

Very appropriate, considering I've been searched (and my possessions seized) by the Holliston police, despite zero cause and zero warrant. So by all means, teach citizens the importance of the fourth amendment, but you might want to start by reviewing it with your own officers first.

Looking forward to watching it. John Moore was an excellent Police Chief and is also an Attorney, so it will be interesting to hear his thoughts. We miss you John!
