    It would seem Padilla considers the above an ‘exigent circumstance.’

    We’re going to ‘carve’ the 4th right out of existence.

    The bolded above doesn’t mitigate the expectation to privacy, government agencies don’t determine legal principles – that’s the same as saying residents of a high-crime neighborhood with a heavy police presence should also not have an expectation to privacy or due process.

    I suppose if you work for the government you have every right to just walk into an individuals home and raid their fridge...

    But hey, just as long as it keeps us safe from the "bad guys."
