U.S. Constitution 4th Amendment is Dead in America
"The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized."


Some dumb Indiana Sheriff sits back and does absolutely nothing while an even dumber health inspector trespasses on private property without a warrant. I hope both these people got fired because this guy couldnt be more correct about his constitutional rights to privacy. Smart of him to get it all on film.

Amendment IV (the Fourth Amendment) to the United States Constitution is one of the provisions included in the Bill of Rights. The Amendment guards against unreasonable searches and seizures, and was originally designed as a response to the controversial writs of assistance (a type of general search warrant), which were a significant factor behind the American Revolution. Toward that end, the amendment specifies that judicially sanctioned search and arrest warrants must be supported by probable cause and be limited in scope according to specific information supplied by a person (usually a peace officer) who has sworn by it and is therefore accountable to the issuing court.

The amendment applies only to governmental actors; it does not guarantee to people the right to be free from unreasonable searches and seizures conducted by private citizens or organizations. The Bill of Rights only restricts the power of the federal government, but the Supreme Court of the United States has ruled that the Fourth Amendment is applicable to state governments by operation of the Fourteenth Amendment. The Supreme Court has said that some searches and seizures may violate the Fourth Amendment's reasonableness requirement even if a warrant is supported by probable cause and is limited in scope. Conversely, the Court has approved routine warrantless seizures, for example "where there is probable cause to believe that a criminal offense has been or is being committed."

Jeff Claiborne
Every piece of supposed evidence she took in the form pictures is not admissible in court due to the the exclusionary rule.  She violated trespass law and the 4th amendment to the Constitution and she actually thinks she has the right to overrule the Constitution.  That the is the height of arrogance.  The deputy was remiss in his duties and should have known better.

He should be confined to an institution the rest of his life. He is not fit to live in society, his actions ARE a threat to the public wellbeing.
Bertha Yellowfinch
Not true, Claiborne.

This video has been up for long enough time to have posted a follow up. PLEASE tell me a lawsuit was initiated. Why do people who post these videos rarely ever post a follow up? This tyranny needs to be addressed!

+Warren Peace No, the 4th only covers your 'house, person, papers and effects', not your property.  The inspector was there legally.
Warren Peace
What is so hard to understand about private property? It's not just your body , documents, and dwelling. The protection extends to your land, that's what boundaries and property lines are for, and even your vehicle which is viewed as just like a home/dwelling when it comes to the 4th Amendment. That deputy' s body language, hesitation, and remaining on the boundary line indicates he knew that it was illegal, but he obviously was willing to let the woman take her chances while he covered his own potential violation.

+steve dudas You should probably exercise your First Amendment more, because your grammar is terrible. You should also give up your firearms if you have any, since you're encouraging people to resolve property disputes with murder. Oh, and the Second Amendment does not allow you to murder people because they walk on your property.

So!!!!! What happened?????????????

+ssn708 thanks - still none the wiser though. have nothing like this in the uk
+Philip Tomlins His house was condemned for an illegal septic system. Although this was a 4th Amendment violation and trespass, condemnation hearings are administrative, and so the exclusionary rule does not apply. They can use unlawfully obtained evidence to condemn a house. He sued, but because it was his illegal septic that caused the condemnation, not the illegal search, his case was dismissed.

+Jeff Lagemann Good, then can obviously tell that whatever she did was not 'treason'.
Jeff Lagemann
+RetSquid Yeah I do.  Apparently you don't.  Let me help you.  Article 3. Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court. The Congress shall have Power to declare the Punishment of Treason, but no Attainder of Treason shall work Corruption of Blood, or Forfeiture except during the Life of the Person attainted. Ill dumb it down for you trea·son ˈtrēzən/Submit noun the crime of betraying one's country, especially by attempting to kill the sovereign or overthrow the government. "they were convicted of treason" synonyms: treachery, disloyalty, betrayal, faithlessness; More antonyms: allegiance, loyalty the action of betraying someone or something. plural noun: treasons "doubt is the ultimate treason against faith"

Cop: "If you had nothing to hide than you wouldn't mind her looking on the property." I think every one should go to deputy Coopers house, and ask to look in his underwear drawer. I mean come on if he has nothing to hide why shouldn't he just let strangers come into his house and check all his stuff.

@Ret I said ask not force our way in.
+Jeff Claiborne According to Supreme Court decisions, she did nothing wrong.  She didn't even attempt to look anywhere that was protected by the 4th.
