4th Amendment violated on TLC 2 Men harassed For Refusing To Open Up The Door Of His Own Home

Police woman goes crazy trying to violate 4th amendment. Congratulations gentlemen for standing your ground. Also watch never talk to the police also on this...
Elizabeth Millicker's insight:

This video depicts police officers trying to violate the 4th amendment. What the officer does is tries to 'force' the men to open the door so she can see what is going on, on the inside. The man in the red and white varsity jacket refuses to open the door for her and convinces his friend not to open the door for her either. Knowing that they need a warrant to do a search of the premises. The officer was clearly trying to intimidate the boys with wearing the uniform to do what she wanted and the gentleman in white was close to cracking but his friend convinced him otherwise. Even if the men in the video seem suspicious the police legally couldn't do anything to find out what they were hinding behind those closed doors.

Kansas community ordinance challenges Fourth Amendment | Elizabeth Millicker-Amendment 4 | Scoop.it

Elizabeth Millicker's insight:

This article talks about a community in Kansas which is trying to push to have a system be passed. It's not any type of program it is a system that is mandated governmental inspections. To help ensure what the curiousity holds with what goes on behind closed doors. The article states this lengthy process of how they system would work. The investigators plan to take pictures and videotape the homes for any violations. If the system would to pass it violates not only the fourth amendment but, how were suppose to feel in our own homes. Protected and secure. Which is not really working when people are watching your every move.

Meet CO-TRAVELER: The NSA's Cell Phone Location Tracking Program | Elizabeth Millicker-Amendment 4 | Scoop.it
An article yesterday in the Washington Post disclosed the NSA's massive cell phone location program. The program, codenamed CO-TRAVELER, is designed to track who meets with whom and covers everyone who carries a cell phone, all around the world.
Elizabeth Millicker's insight:

This news article covers the privacy we are recieving with using cell phones. It talks about a program used that cuts into our privacy status. This program is called Co-Traveler. Co-Traveler collects location information, travel times,  who saw who, and overall what relationship status and how someone is interacting with someone else. It's purpose was to map out the interaction on the phone between people around the globe. The information is being collected with NSA and they are violating the privacy given under the fourth amendment because the company doesn't need warrants to be doing what they are doing.

Fourth amendment | LII / Legal Information Institute

Elizabeth Millicker's insight:

I have included this website for the reason that it not only explains what the Fourth Amendment is but it explains examples and explains what the amendment is. For instance, it explains what it means to have an unreasonable seizures. How to know when there was an infringment on the fourth amendment. Also, the website helps explains the process that someone has to take if they want to take a case to court about the infringment had upon the fourth amendment.  Finally what makes this website stand out compared to others is the fact it shows the different types of warrants that can be used during a search and seizure.

Elizabeth Millicker's insight:

  What Keith does in this video is exactly what the title practically says puts the fourth amendment parts ino a way "dummies" could understand. This video doesn't just talk about how this law works today but it talks about the way it worked back then.  It also talks about what happens when police or investigators find something in someones possession without a warrant in a search and seizure. It also hinders on the fact everything needs a REASON.  He talks about the history of how each part or rule was started to concerning the amendment.

Top Court Revisits 4th Amendment

Top Court Revisits 4th Amendment | Elizabeth Millicker-Amendment 4 | Scoop.it
Supreme Court will decide if a roommate can give permission for an entire apartment to be searched by police. Danielle Leigh reports.
Elizabeth Millicker's insight:

This article is about the idea that as long as there is an okay an officer could search your home. Even without a warrant. They then metioned a case that involved a man Walter Fernandez who had his house searched without a warrant and him refusing. After the arresting of Walter Fernandez the police officials went and confronted Fernandez's roomate with the request to search the house. Which she had surely obliged to. The article further more went about questioning if it was or was not infringing upon the fourth amendment if roomate can agree to have the house searched and the other person living with them not.

No Warrant on Video Surveillance of Home Violates Fourth Amendment

No Warrant on Video Surveillance of Home Violates Fourth Amendment | Elizabeth Millicker-Amendment 4 | Scoop.it
Get conservative news that matters with photos, videos, live updates, editorial, and analysis.
Elizabeth Millicker's insight:

This article is about homes being watched  which concerns the privacy someone is recieving in their own home. One of the cases in the atricle mentioned is "USA  v. Vargus". Vargus was suspected on drug trafficking but, the police did not get a warrant for a search and seizure. They went a step farther and  put a pole in the ground with a camera mounted to the top. It was surveying the house for a month. Watching this mans personal life from the outside of his home. This was a violation of privacy and it did contradict with the purpose of the fourth amendment.

Sen. Rand Paul: Supreme Court needs to re-examine Fourth Amendment | Elizabeth Millicker-Amendment 4 | Scoop.it
Sen. Rand Paul, Kentucky Republican, said Sunday that in light of recent revelations about data mining by the National Security Agency, the country needs a serious examination of privacy and the Fourth Amendment — and he pledged to take the fight...
Elizabeth Millicker's insight:

 In this news article it touches upon a Kentucky Republican, whose name is Rand Paul. Rand Paul is demanding to keep fighting to have the privacy given to the people and the fourth amendment be re-evaluated. The article gives facts about how much of our privacy is being invaded with phone records. He talks about this idea that officials are getting warrants having to deal with one person and using the same one on a thousand other people. Then he talks about the idea Amazon has proposed with sending out these drones to deliver packages. He finally closes up with what he had to say, that we can't go through with these drones deliver packages because we won't have our privacy with them flying around surveying our backyard movements.

Elizabeth Millicker's insight:

  This website doesn't use the "big" words indicated in the actual fourth amendment, it uses words everyone can easily depict and understand. So basically what I am saying is this website summerized what the fourth amendment is. It has links embedded onto the page that can easily direct someone to a topic which they are interested in learning about. You can find out about the history of the amendment. You can find out what is and isn't a valid warrant for search and seizures.

The Fourth Amendment

Elizabeth Millicker's insight:

This website also explains what the fourth amendment is. It describes this balance between what the government can have access to and what is crossing the line and cutting into peoples' privacy. I have learned fromt this article that investigators for the government need to have a valid reason and a strong belief of a trail of a crime in order to do anything that starts to crack into someones' "personal life".  The article talks about how investigators have 'butted in' to some innocent peoples lifes unintentionally. Finally, it talks about the issue that some investigators or government workers are misusing their powers with the fourth amendment.
