Some of these cases are a serious topic to topic about, and most are proved by the Amendments everyone has, as basic, fundamental rights. The Fourth Amendment protects people from unreasonable searches and seizures, and a warrant is needed for searches(Oyez). Public places are locations where everyone can go, where everyone can do anything, as long as the people are not threat to the public(US Supreme Court).The FBI has the technology to spy, and navigate where people are, and uses it against threat” (FBI). Including the fact that all Amendments protect US citizens, it is imperative that Katz had been deprived of his rights by the US government. Searching and seizing someone’s belonging without a warrant is unconstitutional.
Who is to say that the government will not use this to find those who have any rebellious thoughts against the government. Moreover, the government could implant more cameras and say it is for our safety, but in reality, it is used to watch our movements and keep entail on all of us. This is why the government needs somebody to check if it does go on the path of totalitarianism. In Orwell’s 1984, the government uses the information they have for absolute control. In the United States the information they use is intended for the good, but who is to say the things intended for good could never turn into injustices.

The founders of our land of the free implemented a measure to prevent dictatorships such as these that strip people of their individualism. This is our sacred Constitution, which has provisions relating to the right of privacy. Amendment IV of the Bill of Rights states that, â€œThe right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable causeâ€ (The Rights of Privacy screen 1). In other words, the government only has the right to search oneâ€™s property upon maintaining of an official warrant issued for probable cause. This being said, our founding fathers did not anticipate the internet and the
The Fourth Amendment is “the right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause.” In other words, it is against the law for police to search any person without probable cause and an issued warrant. (Cartoon Surveillance) This protects the privacy of the innocent people that may not be considered guilty. However, giving the people a right to a warrant is only giving them an advantage, while the police and the government have a disadvantage. Issuing warrants take away time and privilege for police. Needing a warrant may unable police to some investigations as well.
The Fourth Amendment provides defense against illegal search and seizures. Essentially, one can rest assured that the police will not simply enter his house without any cause or warrant, search until they find something incriminating, and then legally use that discovery to charge the person with a crime. Instead, there are many very specific rules and regulations about how something can be discovered and even damning evidence found incorrectly is thrown out (Katsh, 2013). This is an important constitutional right as it ensures that witch-hunts that aim specifically to find something illegal are never carried out and instead the law enforcement aim is to properly catch someone who is doing something wrong. However, there are problems with this
The Fourth Amendment states that, “the rights of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.” This means that citizens of the United States of America are entitled to privacy and freedom from the government. With most things, there are limits set out to that privacy. Police officers can search your premises, which includes your car and your property. They can do this to look for and seize stolen materials, evidence of a crime, and illegal items such as: drugs, weed, or any illegal substance. Because of the fourth amendment,

The Petitioner further contend that smart phones are every bit as sophisticated as personal computers and need to be treated as such and can be through of as a window into the owner’s mind. Something so personal and extensive cannot be allowed to be confiscated and searched during routine police procedures that do not require a warrant. On the other hand, the Respondent, the State of California, asserts that it is necessary for police officers to confiscate cell phones without warrants because they pose a significant threat to officers’ safety. They points to the possibility of devices being rigged to detonate explosives, when a specific action
