    Last time I looked, the Fourth Admendment didn’t seem that complicated.

    But, I suppose when you want to obscure the fact that you’re ignoring the Fourth Amendment, it helps to make things complicated …

    Yeah, the Fourth Amendment is actually really f*ing complicated. I say this as someone who’s almost certainly on the same side as RP here.
