Being arrested can be a terrifying experience—especially when you are unfamiliar with your legal rights. This video examines the laws surroundingpolice searches and seizures.
The Fourth Amendment is designed to protect individuals during police stops from unlawful searches. This law states that the police cannot legally perform a search or seize any items without a search warrant, arrest warrant, or probable cause. The Miranda Act also protects citizens, as it forces police officials to notify individuals of their rights upon arrest, including the right to remain silent and the right to an attorney.
