Comment: Fourth Amendment

(See in situ)


Fourth Amendment

"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."

When a government-owned device is allowed to determine the exact configuration of my shoelaces while I stand on my own property, is it not considered an unreasonable search?
