Unformatted text preview: In the case of Minnesota vs. Olson, where a suspected driver of the getaway car used in a murder hid in a house that was owned by his female friends. The police were not allowed to just barge into the house to arrest Olson. Because he has a legitimate expectation of privacy in his friend’s home, therefore his 4 th amendment rights states that they need a warrant or permission to enter. The purpose of a warrant is to protect one’s privacy by assuring people that the intrusion is not just a random act or arbitrary acts of government agencies (Lectric Law Library,2010). Another example is the law enforcement asking landlords to give consent to the search of house or apartment. A landlord is not allowed to do any such thing. Plus, one has the right to not be detained for more than 48 hours without probable cause. Kimberly Morano Lectric Law Library, (2010). Fourth Amendment [Constitution].
