From the Paper:

"It is necessary that the exclusionary rule be in place. The law is nothing should it not enforce itself, and when evidence is procured illegally, it is only logical and proper that it not be legally admissible in the court of law. The police exist to protect and serve the people, ensuring that they are able to live their lives without interference, free to pursue liberty and happiness. The exclusionary rule gives the people peace of mind, knowing that the Constitution enforces itself, and that even those who enforce the law are not above it. For government to function, such a situation is a necessity, as the alternative would be contradictory and in essence illegal."
