Hey NSA: Even If AT&T Was Collecting The Info For You, The Fourth Amendment Still Applies | Techdirt

Dialogue overheard at the University of Virginia last week: American general Keith Alexander to the Bilderberg group: " Don't worry- we won't go after the pedophiles and baby bombers in your group.We only subvert the fourth amendment to save children who don't hack the CIA."

I have an idea! Lets just renumber the amendments to the Constitution! That way, none of them can apply to anything- because case law would have to be re-written in order to be effective as a guide!

( Patting myself on the back now- for saving government the trouble of all those citizen complaints…)

From the article:
First some law: the Fourth Amendment applies whenever a “private party acts as an ‘instrument or agent’ of the government.” This rule is clear. In the Ninth Circuit, where our Jewel v. NSA case against mass spying is pending, it has been held to apply when an employee opens someone’s package being shipped in order to obtain a DEA reward (US v. Walther), when a hotel employee conducts a search while the police watch (US v. Reed), and when an airline conducts a search under a program designed by the FAA (United States v. Davis), among others.
