There need to be guidelines into what is considered probable cause in order to respect the right to privacy while still making everyone safe.

The 4th amendment of the United States addresses this issue as it says:

 “The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

So in that sense what can be considered as probable cause and where is the line drawn?

The main reason I ask for this petition to be passed is to avoid taking a person word as a probable cause as they could be dishonest just to get back at someone and involving them in the legal problems while they are ethically and morally wrong for lying. 

The probable cause should involve:

- Video recording of criminal activity

- Oficial or police witnessing what is happening

- Reason to believe something is going on with concrete facts and information that makes sense  

The idea should be about deterring people from bringing illegal objects with them and not just to catch them.
