What historical event led to the 4th amendment in the constitution?
All I know is that the people did not like the British Warrants... I'm doing a history project on the fourth amendment... maybe I will figure it out for you...? But if you find out plz let me know!!! thanks :)
The first ten amendments to the US Constitution were written by James Madison, 4th President of the US. They were added to the Constitution in 1791. Remarkably, Madison also wrote Amendment 27, our latest addition to the Constitution (1992); it simply took 102 years to complete its ratification process.
The 4th Amendment to the United States Constitution guards against unlawful searches and seizure. This means that the police must have a warrant to enter your home in most cases. There is no amendment that bars private individuals from entering your home. That act is prohibited by trespass law, but not guaranteed by the constitution.
US citizens are protected through provisions in the Bill of Rights from unreasonable behaviour by those granted authority over them; this being enshrined in the Constitution. The 4th amendment to the US Constitution makes explicit protections against seizure of person or property and stipulates proper procedure by which warrants for such may be issued.
The amendment protects citizens from unreasonable search and seizure. The 4th Amendment of the US Constitution is: 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.
