Discusses the origin, the purposes, and the development of the Exclusionary Rule and the good faith exception to the rule with special emphasis on the now defunct HR666 (Exclusionary Rule Reform Act, 1995), which would have allowed the admission of evidence not now admissible under the currently recognized exceptions of the rule. Proposes that the judicially created exceptions to the rule have been excessive and suggests that police officers are tempted to violate intentionally the warrant rule, so causing innocent persons to be caught in the net.
