The Fourth amendment to the Constitution Amendment 4 - Search and Seizure. Ratified 12/15/1791. The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, an…d 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. No unreasonable searches can be made unless they have a warrant or a written statement saying they can do the search in the house The fourth amendment of the Constitution is part of the Bill of Rights and basically guards against unreasonable searches and seizures. It's the reason people on like CSI can't go inside someone's house or search their car without a warrant. Unless the police have probable cause against you, they cannot search or arrest you without a warrant. The amendment specifically requires search and arrest warrants be judicially sanctioned and supported by probably cause . It was adopted as a response to the abuse of the writ of assistance , which is a type of general search warrant , in the American revolution . Search and arrest should be limited in scope according to specific information supplied to the issuing court , usually by a law enforcement officer , who has sworn by it . Protects Americans "against unreasonable searches and seizures " The fouth amendement states that we the citizens should protect individuals against unreasanble searches and seizures The fourth amendment protects citizens from unreasonable searches and seizures (a legal procedure where, if the police or other authorities suspect a crime has been committed, they can search a person's property to get evidence). In addition, it also requires search and arrest warrants to be judicially sanctioned and supported by probable cause (the standard by which officers have the grounds to arrest someone). George Washington The 4th Amendment was important back then, because the British had the right to invade colonists homes and seize and/or charge the person with crime. The founding fathers wanted to protect the citizens in the future.This is important now because people can go on with their daily lives w/o the fear of government interfering. (:

The Fifth Amendment says that, "No person . . . shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself". This is the definition of a comfession. The Miranda …Doctrine upholds the Fifth Amendment by preventing a forced confession unless the arrested person is read their Miranda rights , which basically say that he does not have to give any information against himself unless his attorney is present, that the court will appoint an attorney if he cannot afford one, and asks him if he wants to give up those rights.
The fourth amendment protects you against unfair searches and seizures, and searches without warrant or probable cause.
the fourth amendment IS still used today, just not as much. nowadays no one can come to your house and search it, of a police man does that, you have the right to keep the…m out of the house and not allow them to enter.

The 4th Amendment does not in itself provide remedies, however, the Supreme Court has determined that the only way to enforce any of the Bill of Rights in criminal cases, is b…y use of the exclusionary rule. Therefore, any information that is obtained as a result of an unlawful search or seizure is excluded from evidence and cannot be used at trial. This will typically be determined by the judge prior to trial in a motion to suppress hearing.
The Fourth dimension in Space is a real distance dimension r, completing the three vector displacement dimensions. Space is a quaternion with one real dimension and three vect…or dimensions, s= r + Ix + Jy + Kz, where I,J and K denote the vector dimensions. The real dimension r is related to time by r=ct where c is the speed of light. Einstein and Minkowski proposed in Relativity Theory a defective four dimension Space, where the fourth dimension is a vector Ict . This Space is essentially a two dimensional Space and does not exhibit the non-commuttive features of the quaternion Space.
