    Then again, again, again I would be able to realize that if I was stupid enough not to have a key to my own house, I may have to explain to someone why I was jimmy'n the door open.

    But...hey...I'm white. 'Splainin' myself in a rational manner is purdy much the only option I have.

    Is that another law that should be made if you dont have your key its not your house?You claim to be a conservative but what you mean is social conservative not pro freedom conservative you are sucking up to the government.

    Well, in this day and age, bustin' down the door is a bad sign. If you have to break in to your own home, you must be prepared to prove that it's your home. It's just common sense. What's a cop supposed to do, take the person's word that it's his/her home and just leave the scene?

    "Oh! You're breaking into your own home because you don't have your key? Well, sorry to bother you!"

    What if it's your house that someone is breaking into, because he doesn't have his key? You want the cops to ask questions, or you want the cop to say, "ok", and carry on?

    Having to bust down the door doesn't make it obvious that it's your house. Sorry!!

    Was it in the public interest for Gates to go bezerk on the cops? What was that going to accomplish? Why not just say, "hey, officer, this is my home. Here's my driver's license that proves that this is my home of record"? What the hell is the problem with that?!?!?

    No, not even close, but I do want the police to make an honest effort to prove that the person breaking into my home, is the owner. I would be impressed as hell if the cops made that effort to prove that the person breaking into my home wasn't an actual burgler. I mean, hell, that's like, their job.
