The Vertical Politics of Domestic Drones

The 4th Amendment provides us the right to due process, that is the protection against unwarranted searches and seizures.  If a police officer detains us on the street or on the road to question us, there must be probable cause, otherwise as a citizen we are free to walk away from the conversation and carry on with our day.

Domestic Drones
At what altitude are the police invading our personal space?

But what if you cannot walk away because that police officer is collecting information within your personal space?  More than just being watched in a black van from across the street (something I would presume comes with a level of probable cause anyways), the police officer is actually in your home watching your movements and collecting data on you.
