"Do You Have

A Warrant.?"

By Gary Nelson

February 16, 2013

*  *  *  *  *

United States Constitution, 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.Ē

.

.

There seems to be a growing trend at the United States Department of Homeland Security, and that trend is unlawful search and seizure. There are reports of cell phones, tablets, and laptop computers being seized at airports and randomly at many areas within 100 miles of our international borders. There are many travelers constantly within that 100 mile zone, and roughly two thirds of the countryís population lives within that zone (approximately 200 million people). ( 1 )

With Homeland Security taking these liberties at airports, what is to stop them from expanding this

breach of our rights in towns like Buffalo, New York City, Seattle, Los Angeles, San Diego, or any seaside city town? What is preventing them from extending this breach of rights to anywhere U.S.A.?

.

I have heard stories of federal agents knocking on a door and announcing that they were there to search the premises. When asked for a warrant, the agent broke out a piece of paper and hand-wrote a warrant. Iím sorry, but if that were to happen here at Poverty Knob, I would be telling those people to leave while reaching for my phone to call the local sheriff with one hand, and preparing my S&W 686 to come out of its holster with the other. There are only two problems with those actions:

1.The nearest deputy is probably 20 minutes away and,

2. Drawing down on federal agents may prove to be hazardous to my health.

.

In the mean time, what do we do? Are We the Sheeple supposed to sit back and let the boot-jacked

storm trooper have his way? Or is our spineless congress going to stop this type of activity in its tracks?  Itís clear that something must be done. I think a letter to two Senators and one Congressman from EVERYONE is in order. Write to your congressmen and cite the Fourth Amendment of the Constitution as well as the story referenced earlier in this writing. Demand that the ENTIRE CONGRESS stand up for our rights, and tell them that you will be watching for legislation to be forthcoming soon to put some restraints on the Department of Homeland Security and all other law enforcement agencies / departments that there is a NO TOLERANCE clause for violating the rights of citizens of the United States, and that penalties for violations of the rights enumerated in the Bill of Rights will be fierce at all levels up to and including the department head, and if necessary the president if he condones the actions. Donít fall for this bit about these sacrifices being in the interest of national security.  Warrant-less searches are against the law. This should go without saying, but evidently there are certain departments within our government that donít care about the rights of individuals.

Stand up to your government. Remind them that powers not delegated in the United States Constitution are reserved for the States and the People. ( 3 )
