In-Depth Information

  • Robert McNamara, Esq."Is Your Rental Home Your Castle?-Administrative Warrants and Personal Privacy in the Twenty-first Century" - By Robert McNamara, Esq., Institute for Justice, Washington, D.C.; Twelfth Annual National Conference on Private Property Rights (PRFA, Albany, N.Y., October 18, 2008)
    The City of Red Wing, Minnesota, imposes administrative search warrants (searches without probable cause) on rental properties, collecting photos of the interior of residences (including even the inside of closets), and intending to post these on the Internet for police use. The right to privacy, to be secure in your home from searches without probably cause, is guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution.
  • "It Comes With A Price: U.S. Census Intrudes on Privacy" - By
    Carol W. LaGrasse (Property Rights Foundation of America, February 18, 2005)
    Twenty-four oversized pages of invasive questions in the American Community Survey of the U.S. Census Bureau cause citizens to justly worry about their privacy. But Congress precipitated the inquiries in the long form census in order to obtain exhaustive data to plan and fund big government programs.
  • "Another Snitch System Institutionalized" - By Carol W. LaGrasse (PRFA January 23, 2005)
    With the successful settlement of a lawsuit by an environmental group, the Residents Committee to Protect the Adirondacks, citizen informants can not efficiently report violations on the six-million acre Adirondack Forest Preserve. New York State's trend toward environmental snitch systems is raising hackles here and there.
