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. ;-)
