Political Science Essay-Purdue University.

A topic that we briefly covered in class is the 4th Amendment. It protects against unreasonable search & seizure. That is, govt. agents cannot seize anything on your person or property (Mapp v. Ohio incorporated this onto state & local govt. agents) without a search warrant, based on probable cause. We also covered the SCOTUS ruling in Griswold v. Conn, where the court ruled that the people enjoy an implied right of privacy. Specifically, we have the “reasonable expectation” of privacy. This means that we have the right of privacy based on what the average, reasonable person deems should be private. So, what about technology? And what about the border? This is another great example of liberty vs. order – the need for privacy clashing with the need for protection against terrorism and other criminal elements. Please read the following link and answer this question: Is the “reasonable expectation” standard applicable with mobile devices at the border and other ports of entry? Why or why not? Please give one example/argument for each side from the link.
