What are the safeguards put in place to protect the individual from the tyranny of the State?

I can only think of these: A person may not be arrested without a warrant, unless he is caught breaking the law. A person may not be prosecuted twice for the same offence or made to be a witness against him/herself. What else? Thanks

I would assume "Habeas Corpus" which is a legal action which is supposed to prevent unlawful detention and safeguards individual freedom against state action. I am sure there is more but that is what you get from me.
