Gregory Kane: Michael Bloomberg's 'stop-and-frisk' violates the Fourth Amendment

Gregory Kane, a conservative Columnist and visiting professor at Johns Hopkins University takes on New York City's 'stop-and-frisk' policy.

Today, civics class, we will make one last-ditch effort to explain to America's number one enemy of liberty, the law known as the Fourth Amendment.

It reads: "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, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized."

In the plainest, simplest English imaginable, the Founding Fathers stated emphatically that the right of Americans to be secure "in their persons" and a few other things "shall not be violated."
That's a simple idea someone with even a single-digit IQ could grasp. But New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg — yes, he's the nation's number-one enemy of the liberty in question — can't quite grasp it.
