What is the fourth amendment in your own words?


Answer by  mem4dr (1378)

The bottom line is that it protects individuals from harassment by authorities such as the police. So, just because a police officer doesn't like you does not give him the right to search you or your home. In the past fifty years or so, the amendment has been interpreted to provide a general "right to privacy."

The fourth amendment in the US Constitution sets out the limits of the government doing searches of property looking for evidence of a crime. This was to remedy the British procedure of searching American homes looking for people that did not support the government. There has to be probable cause and the search warrant should be specific.
