The Right to Privacy as Enshrined in the US Constitution

You should review the facts and then respond to the questions based ONLY on the cases and readings assigned from class.    Do not do any additional research outside the cases and the readings (including this week’s case) that you have been given.   I will open a discussion board for the midterm this week for your questions.  It is of the utmost importance that when you refer to a case or use it as support for something in your memorandum that you CITE it within the text.  Also, please be as thorough as possible and if a question asks for an opinion or advice please try and examine all possible arguments. Content is important, as is organization and please edit!

 

 

  1. Freda Franklin is an aspiring musician and social activist. Some would even say a radical. She advocates the overthrow of the government by violent force. She uses social media to transmit her messages. She is known to possess many weapons and has been violent in the past. She has posted some of her manifesto on social media, claiming it was a song – but it directly threatened the president of the United States and also one of her former colleagues that she had fallen out of favor with. Specifically, she said, “Let’s overthrow the government and lock the president away and do harm to him with a knife.”   She also wrote that her colleague “should be kidnapped and thrown in the river to drown.” Both the government and her colleague have sued Freda to get the posts removed and hold her accountable for her threats.

The government has also sued Freda’s local library to see if they can obtain her library records.

 

Please advise the parties of the legal issues in the case and what the likely outcomes are for as many issues as you can identify. Remember to specifically use the cases from this quarter to support your arguments.

 

 

  1. The FBI has also developed new technology that allows it to listen to conversations with the aid of an electronic ear (similar to a hearing aid) from 100 feet away AND it can also pull data off cell phones and other electronic devices.  This can penetrate walls as well as listen to conversations in public.  Using the relevant cases that we have studied this quarter as a guide, please discuss whether a right to privacy exists AND analyze the similarities or differences between the cases and give an opinion as to whether the FBI’s use of listening and data collection technology violates the fourth amendment to the United States Constitution?
