That's not fair, Dave.  I don't know any Justice officials who would
criticize the Bill of Rights as hamstringing law enforcement.  More likely
this is a reference to the lack of procedures for a nationwide "trap and
trace" order that would allow the government to track hackers from one US
host to another without having to get a separate order in a local court for
each host.  It's fair to ask questions about this Justice proposal, but I
haven't heard anyone argue that it violates the Bill of Rights.

Well, as I recall, the Fourth Amendment says:

...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.

(Forgive me if I missed a word or two here; this is from memory.)

Darn pesky Constitution. ;-)
