Bill of Rights
The framers ended this practice with the third amendment which prohibits the quartering of soldiers without permission.
The fourth amendment protects citizens from unreasonable searches and seizures. In many cases a search is considered reasonable only if a judge issues a warrant authorizing it.
Before a person can be tried for a serious crime such as murder a grand jury must indict or formally accuse the individual of the crime.
To ensure that people accused of crimes appear for trial judges can order them to pay bail.
This amendment implies that Americans enjoy basic rights not listed in the Constitution.
The seventh amendment is less well known. It provides for a trial by jury in certain kinds of cases involving money or property.
This Amendment was probably created both to ensure that state militias would continue as an armed means of defense and to ensure that individual citizens had a right to own a firearm.
It provides that a person accused of a crime has the right to a prompt and public trial decided by a jury.
The tenth amendment is a final guarantee of citizens rights.
Americans have the right to practice any religion or to practice no religion at all.
