This paper is a detailed look at testing citizen rights by the fourth amendment of the U.S. Constitution by trial and error over the years

This paper focuses on six Supreme Court cases in the history of search and seizure, and explores how the concepts evolved through these cases in trial and error fashion. The author discusses such landmark cases as Terry v. Ohio, Adams v. Williams, and INS v. Delgado. The paper looks at what now constitutes reasonable searches, totality of the circumstances, and probable cause.
“Search and seizure is protected by the Fourth Amendment of the United States Constitution. A series of cases, beginning in the 1960s and continuing to the present, have dealt with the United States Supreme Court’s interpretation of the Fourth Amendment involving citizens’ rights in search and seizure cases.”
