While patently ignoring the 4th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, over the last two years U.S. Law Enforcement (approximately 50 agencies), have equipped officers with a new tech surveillance device. The “Range-R”, manufactured by L-3 Communications, works similarly to a stud-finder and when placed on the wall of a structure can detect interior movement.
Even though the Supreme Court has previously ruled that Officers cannot use high-tech sensors without first obtaining a search warrant that seems of little interest to the newly enabled law enforcement (using the “Range-R”) that rely on pre-established probable cause from previously issued warrants.
Pont of Order: If there is validity in the 4th Amendment which states that “The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable search and seizures,….” and which has long been upheld then should it not be the application of tools which violate that foundation that should be deemed the offense and not the 4th Amendment?
This is yet another of the many false premise(s) circulating about. The fashionable trend that invokes a rule that requires that absolutes give way to ever-evolving distortions so that ever-evolving distortions eventually become believable trends.
