Citizens need to be guaranteed rights as long as they behave. Neighborhoods do not benefit because if the police seize this power of going into a person’s belongings without a permit, then they would use their powers to see what kind of person they are, or finding out on people’s personal business. In general, police will not respect the privacy of the person and his belongings. Therefore, no one should be searched without an extremely good reason and a warrant. Unreasonable searches are unethical.
The U.S. Constitution guarantees privacy under the fourth amendment. The Constitution also says individuals have the right to be free of any unwanted surveillance by the government. People, not big corporations or the government, should be able to rule when and how others can gain connections with ones personal information. The information they are receiving is invading personal privacy. Citizens need to take a stand against this invasion of privacy by protecting all sensitive information, whether it's called "metadata" or "content".
It means that we have the right for privacy and the authorities have no right to search an individual unless there is probable cause. Probable cause falls under the fourth amendment which is that the police officer must have a reasonable amount of suspicion to make an arrest, get a search warrant, and seize property. In addition, if the police officers believe that there is probable cause, he or she may arrest and search an individual without a warrant. Police officers may also have a reasonable suspicion for an individual who has or will commit a crime. It is defined as more as a guess but it is less than probable cause.

The ‘exclusionary rule’ was created to put under limitations the Federal officials and United States courts as they exercise their powers and authority. Additionally, it is in place to see that people maintain their own privacy and rights guaranteed in the Fourth Amendments. It also allows people to secure their premises, person, papers and other effects from unwarranted and unreasonable searches and seizures under the pretense of law. The United States constitution does not allow or tolerate police searches and seizures without warrants and therefore illegal searches and seizure unless there is a good reason for it. This article will argue that the provision for ‘exclusionary rule’ has deterred the police from harassing innocent citizens particularly the minorities groups and defendants too with illegal and unwarranted searches and seizures.
The United States Constitution Fourth Amendment has been put into place to protect the rights of citizens against unreasonable searches and seizure by law enforcement authorities. The Fourth Amendment was passed in 1789 and later ratified in December 15, 1971. The Fourth Amendment offers protection and prohibits unreasonable searches and seizures. When, how, and why these searches have taken place is protected under this law. An officer of the law would need a warrant to perform the search and has to have probable cause in order to search a person and their property.
The warrant issuing process is what is used to keep the police from invading the privacy of an individual (Lynch 4). If the exclusionary rule was not in effect the police would rarely go through the process to get search warrants and would use the evidence found rummaging around a persons home, vehicle, or even the individual themselves, without his or her permission searching for something that could possibly incriminate them (Lynch 4).

Such a search or seizure is unconstitutional under the Fourth Amendment, and evidence obtained from the unlawful search may not be introduced in court. Detention is a term used by certain governments and their military to refer to individuals held in custody.
The Exclusionary Rule is intended to refrain the police from misconduct. The 4th amendment right protects every citizen from illegal searches and arrests. When the police violates this 4 amendment right, the evidence they have collected will be avoided in the federal court. There are three fundamentals of the exclusionary rule. Foremost, an illegal action by an officer of police or an agent of police.
With any of these circumstances an officer has the right to conduct a search of the suspect. A search and seizure is only to be considered unlawful when an individual’s personal property i.e., their house or car is searched or breached without owner consent.
