U.S. Supreme Court to Decide if Police Can Barge in Unannounced
The police are becoming willing participants in the creation of a police state. They have decided that the constitution is crap as long as the job gets done. I'm fine with cops, they keep law and order in society and have a pretty rough, scary, dangerous, and sometimes thankless job (that I can empathize with). The only problem is they are not above the law. They cant just go crashing into peoples homes in five man stacks without a warrant, and say that the evidence they found is justification, after the fact. That's like the Office of Pre-Crime in the movie Minority Report.
They may think they have the authority to do it, but we as American citizens must put them in their place. I would hate to condone violence against law enforcment officers, but if that is what it takes for them to get the point that they are not above the law, then so be it. My job, and the job of every American, is to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, when people violate that document they become the enemies of freedom and our country and should be shown NO quarter; especially when executing such actions in a violent and hostile fashion.
It would be one thing if they knocked on the door and pushed their way into his house and started snooping, but they were doing it in a violent fashion, which is the most aggregious abuse of power to destroy the 4th Amendment.
This time they've been caught and it has been appealed to the Supreme Court, but what happens when search and seizure without and warrant, and without probable cause becomes the norm? Or has it already? What happens when you are automatically suspect just for being a citizen? Or are you already? Have your phone conversations been monitored or wiretapped? Are you on the governments No-Fly List or the No-Flay Watchlist? You dont know, do you? And there is no way to find out...
