    Re: Court: No right to resist illegal cop entry into home

    I feel that the Supreme Court will see it differently than the way this Court did.

    The question of whether the Constitution protects privacy in ways not expressly provided in the Bill of Rights is controversial. Many originalists, including most famously Judge Robert Bork in his ill-fated Supreme Court confirmation hearings, have argued that no such general right of privacy exists. The Supreme Court, however, beginning as early as 1923 and continuing through its recent decisions, has broadly read the "liberty" guarantee of the Fourteenth Amendment to guarantee a fairly broad right of privacy that has come to encompass decisions about child rearing, procreation, marriage, and termination of medical treatment. Polls show most Americans support this broader reading of the Constitution.

    Wonder if he can "poke" into the wife as well

    One step closer to a police state.

You let him do the illegal search, then take it up with a court afterwards. Even if he finds nuclear rods in your car, if it was an illegal search, you take it up with the court, and it will be thrown out and you'll be let off. This isn't some super important legal case. Just think about it with the car metaphor.
    You can resist the search.

    Wow....what are we coming to.

    Papers please
    If a cop is illegally in your home then he should be treated no different than any other trespasser.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    Shoot first and ask questions later right? Just wondering though how exactly would most people know if the intrusion is legal or not? Mistakes on warrants are made, and most people are not legally versed in this sort of thing, do you really think it's a good idea for someone to go all postal just because they THINK it's an infringement of their rights?
    You can't reason somebody out of something they were never reasoned into in the first place.

    They can't do anything, if they don't have a warrant, and you don't consent, well tough cookies.

    Do not fight cops in the street. You will never, ever win and even if they're wrong you'll be lucky if they even pay your hospital bills. The only weapon you can beat a cop with is a lawyer.
