With the fourth amendment of the Constitution this is search and seizure this is the right of the people to be secure as a person, house, paper and effect against any type of unreasonable search and seizure, this shall not be violated and not Warrants shall issue upon any type of probable cause, supported by an Otha or affirmation, and with the particularly describing the place to be searched and the person or things to be seized. The search-and-seizure provisions of the Fourth Amendment are all about privacy. To honor this freedom, the Fourth Amendment protects against “unreasonable” searches and seizures by state or federal law enforcement authorities. The flip side is that the Fourth Amendment does permit searches and seizures that are reasonable. In practice, this means that the police may override your privacy concerns and conduct a search of you, your home, barn, car, boat, office, personal or business documents. With the exclusionary rule this can enable courts to exclude incriminating evidence from being introduced as trail and upon the proof that the evidence was procured in the violation of the constitutional provision.
