In 1787, the Constitution, created by a group of men known as the “Framers”, is the highest law in the United States. At first, the Constitution was not ratify because it did not have a bill of rights which is a list of rights that belong to the people. Therefore to allow changes to the Constitution, the Framers created the amendment process. In 1791, congress proposed twelve changes to the Constitution. Ten of the twelve changes were agreed to by the states and were called “The Bill of Rights.” Some of these rights include the right of free speech, the right to practice your own religion and the right to be silent if you are arrested.
The origin of the 4th amendment dates all the way back to Pre-Revolutionary America, where Britain, in order to cut down on the amount of smuggling to and from the colonies, issued an order known as the writs of assistance which entailed that specially appointed warrants had the right to search homes and boats of colonists and if found, seize prohibite...
The right to privacy is listed out in the fourth amendment. The constitution is considered the supreme law of the land. The fourth amendment has three components. The first is that U.S. citizens have the right to be "secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects." The second protects U.S. citizens by prohibiting “unreasonable” search and seizures, which are without probable cause. The third component states that “no warrant may be issued to a law enforcement officer unless that warrant describes with particularity "the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized" ("Legal Dictionary"). The three components of the fourth amendment lay down the ground work so that U.S. citizens like us have certain rights, which are expressly written.
As police officers continue their hunt to remove criminals off the street, search and seizure has been an ongoing pursuit. The Fourth Amendment protects our right against an unreasonable search. Just like citizens, police officers have limit caps on what they can and cannot do. Although they try to get away with coercion, our Fourth Amendment plays a crucial role in determining arbitrary and lawful search and seizures. Search and seizure has played an important role in law enforcement over the years and it still continues to shape our criminal justice system.
The 4th amendment of The Bill of Rights guarantees freedom from unreasonable searches and seizures. Henry David Thoreau once said, “That government is best which governs least," this statement is true because the more the government is involved, the more complicated life becomes for the people of the U.S. When government is too involved in something, it can soon becomes corrupt. The Safford Unified School District v. Redding was a case in 2009 where thirteen year old Savanna was suspected to have given prescription-strength ibuprofen to a friend in school, this resulted in the vice principal taking her backpack and searching for more pills. Nothing was found in Savanna’s backpack so she was sent by the vice principal to the nurse’s office to be stripped of all her clothes including her undergarments; again nothing was found. In this instance the school became overly involved for non-justifiable reasons which caused the situation to become corrupt. This is comparable to when the government and law enforcement is too involved in the citizen’s lives. It is of unjust law to search the American people without probable cause. The school strip searched Savanna illegally which
The fourth amendment gives every citizen a right to privacy. In the fourth amendment it clearly states that police or the government do not have the right to search citizens or their property with out having probable cause. What this really means is that everyone has a right to keep their property and their information to themselves. Its not something the government or law
The Fourth Amendment pertains to the rights of the people in making sure that they are secure in their persons, their homes, their papers, and effects, from unreasonable searches and seizures, without being violated, and no warrants shall be issued, but with probable cause. It is backed by oath or affirmation, and with specific description of the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
The Fourth Amendment is the basis on which defendants of privacy base their arguments in legal battles. It guarantees that citizens will never be subject to “unreasonable searches and seizures”. The key word is unreasonable; that is, indiscriminate snooping on another person's personal information. Many court cases have hinged their decisions on interpretations of the Fourth Amendment.
Tobacco originally grew in North America and South America. It was used as a pain killer and all around healer from dressing wounds to relieving tooth pains (“History…”). Smoking was used in Native American religious ceremonies. New World explorers took tobacco back to Europe from North America and by the 1600’s it was an acceptable every-day pastime. Tobacco users either put dried tobacco leaves in cigars and pipes or breathed in the powdered form of tobacco known as snuff. Although some people looked down on the use of tobacco, it continued to become substantially popular after cigarettes began to be produced in mass in the 1800’s. Smoking was identified as “a direct cause of cancer and various other health problems” by the U.S. Surgeon General in 1964 (“Smoking”). Smoking kills more than drinking, drugs, auto accidents, AIDs, and suicide combined and ninety percent of smokers start by age eighteen (Schwartz). Although people who start smoking as teens are less likely to quit, it is possible to stop smoking with the proper resources.
The Bill of Rights are the first ten Amendments to the Constitution. The Bill of Rights works to provide constitutional protection for the individual and to limit government power. The First Amendment and the Sixth Amendment protects the individual by allowing religious and political freedom, and by promising a public and speedy trial. The Fourth Amendment protects the individual’s privacy and limits the reach of the government into people’s homes and personal belongings. The three essential Amendments from the Bill of Rights are: the First Amendment- Religious and Political freedom: the Fourth Amendment- Search and Seizure: and the Sixth Amendment-Criminal Court Procedures.
