"Why did they write the Bill of Rights? They practically all relate to the way cases shall be tried. And practically all of them make it more difficult to convict people of crimes. What about guaranteeing a man the right to a lawyer? Of course that makes it more difficult to convict him. … They were written to make it more difficult. … They were every one intended to make it more difficult before the doors of a prison closed on a man because of his trial."
— Supreme Court Justice Hugo Black, 1968
