The 'Jurisprudence' you refer to IS the case law

the case law is nothing more than a sophistic load of cynical crap which seeks to turn the plain meaning of words on their head. The fourth amendment says "...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". That seems perfectly clear to me. If it ain't in the warrant, it can't be seized. I used to think 'Jurisprudence' held that if the warrant was for a shotgun, for example (unthinkable at the founding unless the gun was evidence in a robbery or murder) that the authorities can't look in your stamp drawer for something that couldn't possibly fit, but I guess our Supreme Sophists finessed that away, too.
