If the latter case, then Due Process (of the "substantive" as opposed to the "procedural" variety) would be involved, because that's the basis of the Incorporation Doctrine.

And that is the basis of their decision which is why I said what I did because I had actually read the ruling and not just the summary.

You're joking right? Please tell me you are joking. Do you even know what due process means?

Due process is the principle that the government must respect all of the legal rights that are owed to a person according to the law of the land.

This case was about the police not respecting the legal rights of the accused person hence by it's very definition it is a violation of due process.
