Susan Ryan at Corn and Oil got me to thinking about daytime curfews again after reading one of her recent posts, A Trend: Random Home Visits
Whenever I read this type of news, I’m always reminded to go and read the 4th Amendment to make sure it is still firmly in place. It reads:
U.S. Constitution: Fourth Amendment
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.
Yet cases like the one that Susan wrote about continue to grow? If you would like to make sure you aren’t surprised by a daytime curfew in your state, go to google or any other newsfeed and set up a “daytime curfew” + “your town” search that will be sent to your inbox if one is suggested and the media picks it up. Google’s can be found at the bottom of their page. For example, since I typed in daytime curfew laws into the search, at the bottom of the page I found:

If you are aware of a proposed daytime curfew in your town or nearby, I would love to hear what local folks are doing to try and stop it. ~~~ Mary
