Whose Eyes are you Going to Believe? Scott v. Harris and the Perils of Cognitive Illiberalism

Vol. 122 No. 3 This Article accepts the unusual invitation to “see for yourself” issued by the Supreme Court in Scott v. Harris, 127 S. Ct. 1769 (2007). Scott held that a police officer did not violate the Fourth Amendment when he deliberately rammed his car into that of a fleeing motorist who refused to pull over for speeding and instead sought to evade the police in a high-speed chase.
