Amendment 4

Amendment 4 is all about the people being secure with their persons, houses, papers, etc. Unreasonable searches are not allowed unless a police is told to search. Amendment 4 affects us today because without it, people wouldn't have any privacy and the police would have the right to search and take anything they want at any time without being told to.
