Amendment4 Search and seIzure

The fourth amendment is The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

Amendment 4 helps citizens by not letting in a officer / cop to search your house without a warrant. Amendment 4 is helpful because nobody can come into your house looking for drugs, weapons , and other bad stuff. If an officer wants to enter your house without a warrant from a judge you have the choice of not letting him in. If a officer comes with a warrant to search your property you have no choice but letting him in.

A officer can't pull you over to search your vehicle, he has to have a reason why you pulled him over and also a reason why he's going to check your vehicle. This amendment protects you from abuse of the government.

This is why the amendment 4 is helpful so no government agent or officer could come into your house without a warrant. If an officer goes into your house like that you could report him for home invasion, and possible for going in your house without a warrant or permission.

So an agent or officer can get a warrant to check your property there has to be a. Probable cause or reasons why they want to search our house or property .

This amendment also is used in school so teacher or any staff member won't search your belonging. Some questions I ask my self are when can they check your belongs ? Do they need a warrant to check your bag ? I think they need permission for their parent of from a police department. This is the reason why the 4th amendment is helpful to protect you from unreasonable searches.

This amendment also protects me from school searches. It impacts me so when a principle or a staff teacher want to check your backpack or phone without having a reason why would have me thinking why don't they give me a reason why they are doing that , or why didn't they ask for my parents permission so they can search my belongings

In conclusion this is why I believe Amendment 4 is very helpful and good. It protects your from searches and protects you from letting in an officer to your property without a warrant.
