PERSONS, HOUSES, PAPERS, & EFFECTS are SEARCHED or SEIZED WITHOUT WARRANT

Every search and every arrest, by every level of every executive branch of Government, is a Fourth Amendment event. With few exceptions, they require warrants. Individualized probable cause is necessary.
British tyranny in colonial America in this regard is documented history. Slowly and unfortunately, searches without warrants are becoming normalized by the courts. Regulatory agencies now conduct unannounced inspections of businesses without probable cause. Police conduct investigative stops for questioning with the vaguest suspicion of criminality. Suspicion-less intrusions at airports and public schools are commonplace, teaching the public this natural right cannot be exercised.
When warrants are unnecessary, anyone can be set up. Abuses were a major source of tension in pre-Revolutionary America. Abuses remain a major source of tension in pre-Revolutionary America.
