A USCG inspection is never unreasonable because the courts have determined it is reasonable to allow them at all times.
Can you show me where the terms reasonable/unreasonable are found in the document. Here is the link.
The problem is you are trying to shoehorn modern interpretations of what a reasonable search is to laws that were decided about 200 years ago.
Ah... no, I believe the fourth amendment(1791) precedes the law(1949?) authorising the USCG extra-constitutional power. It would appear the USCG is exempt
from the application of the fourth amendment. It would seem to me because this exemption does not explicitly re-define what is an 'unreasonable search' (it, in fact, has no need to make such a delineation as any qualification has the capacity to limit the power being granted) the original fourth amendment definition is still intact. Minnewaska (and possibly others) does not appear to hold this view and I have asked where I could find this new definition since that was the point in the post I was referencing. As I said previously, I could not find a new definition during a cursory search.
You can keep poking at this, but if you're a UK citizen, I fail to understand what you hope to accomplish.
I fail to see where nationality would be germane.
The phrase "unreasonable" was not amended
First off the word 'unreasonable' can be classified as a term but not as a phrase. Secondly, it appears we are in agreement, the original definition of 'unreasonable search' stands.
If you are just trolling, let's stop.
Starting from the second post I have found a lot of responses in this thread to be contemptuous and belittling. Given that, my posts, to some measure, could be labeled trolling but I consider it trolling the troll-like responses in this particular thread.
Lastly, I like to point out I have never stated the USCG does not have the 'legal authority', illogical as it is, to search all US flagged vessels anywhere in the world, contrary to what some seem to believe.
Now...I think I need a shower.
