The Fourth Amendment - Is Privacy In There?

Re: The Fourth Amendment - Is Privacy In There?
This does have to do with privacy, but I'd say that it has more so to do with protecting people from accusations and charges.
Privacy: The state of being private or in seclusion, being free from intrusion or disturbance in one's affairs.
While it may seem so, I'd go and say that it isn't necessarily guaranteeing privacy. Like I said, it has more to do with protecting citizens from accusation. Of course privacy is an aspect of this but I don't think it guarantees it, since this amendment is having to do with accusation and being innocent until proven beyond a doubt guilty.
