  Evidence (law) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Evidence must be relevant — that is, it must have a tendency to make a fact at issue in the proceeding be more or less probable than it would be without the evidence.
The bulk of the law of evidence regulates the types of evidence that may be sought from witneseses and the manner in which the interrogation of witnesses is conducted during direct examination and cross-examination of witnesses.
These include the exclusionary rule of criminal procedure, which prohibits the admission in a criminal trial of evidence gained by unconstitutional means, and the parol evidence rule of contract law, which prohibits the admission of extrinsic evidence of the contents of a written contract.

 The Law and Science of Evidence
Both law and science relied on the development and control of a special disciplined space regarded as public but in fact sustained by its limited access, a space in which experimental, discursive, and social practices were controlled by competent members.
Simon Greenleaf, who compiled the first American treatise on evidence in 1842, praised "the symmetry and beauty of this branch of the law," and, quoting Lord Erskine, noted that its principles were "founded in the charities of religion, in the philosophy of nature, in the truths of history, and in the experience of common life."
The only method of ascertaining the common law upon any given question is by a collation of the reported decisions upon similar or analogous cases, and, after deducing from them the general rule by which they were determined, then applying it to the point under consideration.

To avoid any information going public, the federal law mentioned above was invoked and the Air Force was able to maintain their secrecy at the base, with the blessing of the President by virtue of the exemption issued each year.
The signs around the perimeter still indicate “the use of deadly force is authorized”, and the patrols by the “cammo dudes” in their Jeeps, and 4 wheel drive Ford and Chevy pickups, still monitor any unauthorized individuals approaching to close to the boundary of the base.
