in the movies, police often show their badges, and then take people's cars, motor cycles, or whatever. people often let police walk into their place of business after flashing a badge, etc.

isn't this a violation of the third and fourth amendment?

Here's the third amentment:

No Soldier shall, in time of peace be quartered in any house, without the consent of the Owner, nor in time of war, but in a manner to be prescribed by law.

it seems to me like this sorta of principle could sorta apply to the above situation - cops are in sense, like soldiers, and people often treat cars with the same regard as they do houses.

here's the fourth amendment:

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.

flashing a badge and taking your car could also be seen as unreasonable seizure, imho.

you can read the ammendments here: ... _1-10.html
