Yes they do. You notice I said "power", not authority. After all, they have the gun, the keys, and the cell. I do not remember giving up any Constitutional Rights, but daily, on the Tellie, you see time and time again just what is really happening. In America the only way you are Guaranteed any Constitutional Right is by the dollar. You must be able to afford the best, most expensive Lawyer there is, or else you could become a lockup statistic.
