With the intensive searches taking place at airports the question of the 4th amendment becomes a serious question.
At what point does the 4th amendment kick in? Or, should I say when does it no longer apply? Is there actually some point where a person not convicted of a crime, a person who has done nothing giving probable cause to a law enforcement officer where the 4th amandment against unreasonable search no longer applies?
Do we actually lose our right to not be subjected to unreasonable searches when we have done nothing wrong? This is a broad question which is currently putting our rights at risk at airports but if allowed can easily be expanded to many other aspects of the lives of citizens.
