    Since some states now consider your car to be an extension of your home,
    Castle doctrine - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    I wonder how long it will be before someone challenges dog assisted car searches?
    I think the ruling is good, but wonder about the technical aspects.
    If the actual smell of illegal activity is emerging from your home, no matter how slight, if it is detectable,
    does that constitute probable cause?
    For infrared observation the light is coming "out" of the house.
    At some point our technology will allow us to capture all emissions from a home, without
    being on the property.
    The dog in this case is just a portable chemical analyzer.

    Calls to mind a news story I heard about a year or two ago.

    Some grad student developed a system that can "see" inside a house using radio signals. You put a bunch of emitters around the perimeter and they send signals through the house. Computers track the microscopic delays caused by going through solid matter and use it to build a 3d model. It looks crappy as a sonogram, but you can definitely see people, furniture and stuff.

    To add some spice to this debate, I find it telling that the two GWB appointees voted for the State while the two Judges Obama put on the court sided with the people.
