Dog Day in Supreme Court

The Supreme Court of the United States will hear arguments to determine whether drug sniffing dogs are an infringement on fourth amendment rights today. At stake is whether warrantless use of drug sniffing dogs are a violation of the fourth amendment of the United States constitution regarding unreasonable search and seizure.

Part of the debate will confront a ruling from a 2005 case where Judge Steven’s stated that a dogs nose does not violate human privacy so long as “no information other than the location of a substance that no individual has any right to possess.” The problem is that drug sniffing dogs are not 100% accurate and one study has even found that only 44% of the time drug dogs accurately find drug paraphernalia.

What do you think about drug dogs and privacy?
