Discussion Post 1
TWO: Can the government, without a search warrant, fly a drone around your property as long as they abide by the legal limits of flight – not going too low or too high? Can they take pictures of your property using the drone without a warrant?
The simple answer is yes, they can.
The Government has a long-standing position when it comes to aerial photography, low-altitude and high-altitude flight surveillance.  Since the attacks of 9/11, the Government has enacted and has utilized the Freedom of Information Act as a means to monitor suspected criminal and terrorist activities within the U.S.  The Supreme Court has upheld several decisions involving the Government and warrantless searched based on the circumstances of the evidence obtained and whether or not the information obtained (or the means by which it was obtained) violated the 4th Amendment.
For example, in Dow Chemical Co. v. United States, 476 US 227, the Supreme Court determined that high-altitude photography of a chemical plant was not a search under the 4th Amendment.  The Court concluded that there was no way for the photos taken at that altitude to discern any activity within the chemical plant itself.
In the case of California v. Ciraolo, 476 US 207, determined that photographs of a residential backyard and garden taken at low-altitude were not a violation of the 4th Amendment.  By conducting activities in the backyard and within the view of neighbors and passersby the homeowner could not have any expectation of privacy.  Thus, the photos which showed the homeowner’s garden and the marijuana they were growing was admissible into evidence.
Discussion Post 2
QUESTION FOUR:  Can the government without a warrant go to your bank and get your private bank records?
The Government cannot access your bank records without a warrant.  They can obtain a warrant under certain circumstances and thus obtain the records without your knowledge, but they still need a warrant to access the records.
Prior to 1978, the federal Government established that individuals had no expectation of privacy to their financial records when they operated through a banking institution, because the records in essence belonged to the institution, not the customer. However, in 1978 the Right to Financial Privacy Act was enacted and created a veil which now requires a warrant to pierce.
Today, the law enforcement must follow specific procedures when requesting bank records. They must detail the reason for the records and the suspicious criminal activity they believe these records will uncover.  Alternatively, if the banking institution believes the customers finances are obtained via illegal means, they can alert law enforcement and thus creating a reason to obtain the warrant for the records.

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I get my paper done?

It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.

Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.

We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.

Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?

All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?

Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!

Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?

Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.

I got my order information wrong, can I change that?

Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email (support@essaynook.com) or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.

Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?
