Amendment IV

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.

Oath of Office

I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.

So its Treason then..

Finally. Someone gets it.

The law is illegal and those who tried to pass it are guilty of treason.

If the police want to search the contents of the desk in my office, they need a warrant. But if they want to search the contents of my email or phone, that's fine. Everyone knows this is wrong but no one seems to care.

Mostly the investment in solving the problem nationally isn't worth the pay off. Any victory will be undone by a slew of new bills, all with different names and wordings but the same outcomes.

Minor shit like this piles up eventually till people won't tolerate it any longer.

The way they get around it is right here.

Kind of like how your trash is considered in the public space. As soon as you use a company to host your data, legally a lot of the time they are now the owners of that data and they can decide what to do with it.

I'm not saying it's right, but it's within the amendment wording. They rake everything in the public space and companies who have no stake in your affairs for the data you gave to them for evidence of probable cause in order to get a warrant.

True but aggregate data collection still violates the 4th amendment, and do we not own our TCP/UDP data packets as they are produced by our computers under our decision. I know social media TOS basically fucks you.
