Americans don’t deserve privacy, at least that’s what the government has expressed.The National Security Agency, or NSA, has access to all internet files and phone records across the country. Americans are spied on and most have no clue of it; this is unfair and quite disturbing. The Patriot Act, hosted by NSA, should be abolished because it invades Americans’ fourth amendment, it doesn’t limit the amount of terrorism in America, and they can use their power to brainwash citizens and hack into social medias.
Innocent Americans, not connected to any crime or terrorism, are invaded everyday. Their 4th amendment is invaded without them even knowing. The 4th amendment states that “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---”. This means that, without a search warrant or probable cause, citizens should not experience eavesdropping or invasion. The notice requirement enables the person whose property is to be searched to assert her Fourth Amendment rights.
For example, a person with notice might be able to point out irregularities in the warrant, such as the fact that the police are at the wrong address, or that because the warrant is limited to a search for a stolen car, the police have no authority to be looking in dressers.
It can be argued that the government doesn’t know who and who isn’t involved with terrorism
