HARRISON v. UNITED STATES (392 U.S. 219)
Argued: April 4, 1968. --- Decided: June 10, 1968
Mr. Justice BLACK, dissenting.
It seems to me that the Court in this case carries the Court-made doctrine of excluding evidence that is 'fruit of the poisonous tree' to a wholly illogical and completely unreasonable extent. For this and many of the reasons suggested by my Brother WHITE'S dissent, I agree that holdings like this make it far more difficult to protect society 'against those who have made it impossible to live today in safety.' I would affirm this conviction.
