That's insane! Coppers ain't coming in my house without a warrant or a fight!
good way for the cops to become gator bait.
and you know they are heading to Sandys house. someone gave them a tip about the fatties in her computer!
as the dissenting judges said.....the doors to hell.
and nobody sees a problem with the patriot act opening this crap up
AHEM.......This just in from your friendly neighborhood Constitution -ratified December 15, 1791, and form part of what is known as the "Bill of Rights."
Oh, and we cannot forget:
We now return you to your regularly scheduled disregard for the Constitution by your socialist police-state political leadership.
well i was following the thread fine till new guy posted the ammendments. I mean they are very good and all im just wondering what his point for posting them was. Im sure most of us know what they say.
Well, well, well. Another incomplete article from our local press.
Why don't you post the actual text of the law?
I'd love to pick it apart.
Here are more things about this case:
So this is nothing new. I'm not trying to be a smartass when I'm asking this, but were the same complaints made when those appellate courts made these decisions?
I agree with this, but I guess I can also see where people are coming from if they find something that is not in "plain sight" during one of these searches.
Ah, thanks for the link. So, there is no law that says police can search someone's house ad infenitum. Gee, let's concern ourselves with the particularities then.
1. Police were investigating a suspected criminal activity.
2. Police were given permission to enter the house.
3. Police were told the suspect was in the bedroom.
4. Police were aware the suspect is a convicted felon.
5. Police thought suspect was hiding; awaiting opportunity for ambush.
6. Police search for suspect in the bedroom only...finding 3 guns.
7. Police find fleeing suspect in woods.
8. Police ask for and receive suspect's signature on a search request.
Since the police had the right to search for the person and discovered the guns, seems to me the search was entirely legal. Had the guy been sitting on the bed, there would be some distinction.
Is this a slipperly slope? Perhaps.
Is it as bald-faced and clear cut as the original article suggested?
Not on your life.
