My definition of "reasonable" is unless you see someone run in my house shooting wildly or throwing bombs or some such. You can bring your happy ass back with a warrant.


Problem is that 200 years of lawyers (damn them!) has redefined "reasonable" into some 10-page stupid definition that has no relation to reality.

    I'm not really concerned what what lawyers (*hawk spit*) have written or defined.
    Rights in the constitution come from a higher authority than them. Popo can come back with a warrant unless there's a gun fight runnin, I don't care if they are looking for Osama Bin Ladin. Not that I have any fantasies about how that would go down, but I have my principals and I'll stick to them.  :neener

    Yeah, you're entitled to your own opinions. The problem you're going to run into is that your opinions are inadmissable in a court of law. 200 years of lawyers and case law, however, are.

    You do the math about how well this will work out for you.

    But if you do try it, get someone else to hold the videocamera, so it doesn't get broken...

    I'm not trying to get into a spitting match with you, DR, but....

    I guess I did mis-speak a little - I blame the lawyers, but ultimately the Supreme Court has interpreted what phrases in the Constitution mean. It doesn't really matter what you think is reasonable, but what the law (as jacked up as it may be) has come to determine what reasonable means.

    Standing on principal is all well and good, but you've gotta choose your battles. Having a battle to the death over allowing a cop enter your home doesn't get you anything but dead. Telling them clearly that they don't have your permission to enter, but not forcefully resisting when the insist will allow you to fight another day in court (and not from jail) and then fight the illegal entry as a means to try and change the jacked up interpretation of "reasonable." 

    I'm not saying that you'd have a fight to the death to keep the police out - but if that's your position ... Well, good luck with that.

    I feel like we have the unlawful entry conversation about once a quarter or so.  Granted, this time there was a rather unprecedented situation that quite legitimately raised the question.  But still........


    Where do you guys think the dude is hiding?  Still in Boston, escaped the city, or maybe he already holed up in a dark corner somewhere and blew his brains out?

    Why would you not let them in, given the circumstance?

    If it were me, probably my "stockpile" of evil black sporting rifles and ammunition retention accessories that would be illegal if I lived in Boston.

    For somebody else, their stash of pot. There are lots of reasons an otherwise law abiding citizen might not want popos poking around.

    There's also principle, but as discussed before, the careful selection of your battles might be wise.

    Actually, I'd probably let them in, and express my appreciation for the tough day of work they're doing.

    So they found him, and have spent the last half hour trying to flash bang him to death.  I assume you all know this by now.

    Oh yeah.  Their Auntie who is a lawyer in Toronto is already making big noises in the media about disbelieving the authorities, demanding proof, etc...  I'm guessing she thinks she can make her career on this.

    My guess is they don't see eye to eye on the subject, and have a different stake in the outcome.

    Well I didn't expect them to take him alive no matter what.
    I'm impressed.  :thumbup1

    And in real life non chest internet thumping circumstances, I wouldn't get into a shootout with them over illegally searching my house, I'd protest and lock the door on their ass.
    And as non-violently as possible make it as hard to search the premiss as possible as a means of civil disobedience. Then I'd sue the shiznit out of them. Because that is a out right violation of the constitution I don't care what the corrupt, political, decrepit court has to say about it.

     From the perspective of one who's done quite a few fugitive manhunts, consider this:
     If you've nothing to hide, why not let them do a security sweep of your house and curtilage in order to (A) give you peace of mind that no boogie men are on your property and (B) so they can move on efficiently and constantly expand their perimeter in order to contain him inside and restrict his movements?

    PS: It was just this kind of cooperation that led the lady to notice and report to said authorities, that something was different from when they performed a security sweep of her property, thus leading to his capture. By the way, he was captured within their perimeter, nearly text-book.
