This part of the book discusses arrest and search in detail. The freedom of the just man is worth little to him if he can be preyed upon by the murderer or the thief. Every society must have means to protect itself from marauders. It also must have powers to arrest, to search, and to imprison those who break its laws. So long as those powers are properly exercised, they are the safeguards of freedom. But powers may be abused, and if those powers are abused, there is no tyranny like them. This account has been divided into various chapters namely: making an arrest, making a search, and new procedures. Each chapter considers a different facet of the single diamond.
