Hi Everyone, What rights are protected by the 4 th Amendment? Give three concrete examples. The rights protected by the 4 th Amendment are that people have the right to be secure in their persons, house, papers, and effects against unreasonable searches and seizures, because unreasonable searches and seizures are unconstitutional (Lectric Law Library, 2010). A search of private property without the owner’s consent is considered unreasonable. A warrant needs to be obtained before entering and also needs to be shown to the owner or have permission from the owner to enter the home, or be in hot pursuit, in which case a warrant is not needed. The warrant should have what or who is being searched for. Anything more found can not be used in court, as it is a violation of one’s 4 th Amendment rights. If a person is on a public telephone with the door closed, it is one’s right to privacy. The police can not listen in on one’s conversation without a warrant.

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].

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
