    I got into this discussion with another member of this site about what is unreasonable. I did not know how to answer this completely but I wonder if the people who wrote that meant a search without a reason or a reason not pertaining to the cause of the search.

    Does anyone have an originalist POV on this?

    Police shouldn't be able to search you without a warrant.

    It means what it says, one must have some "reasonable" reason to detain and search. The "reasonable" part is up to the Laws and the Courts to work out.

    See the 4th 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.

    That's why you never give them permission to search you and let them if they're going to do it. That way you can get it thrown out and get them in trouble.

    If someone searches me it is unreasonable.
    If they search some one else to keep me safe it is reasonable.
