This is why the ruling is badSeems the court didn't rule narrowly enough.Criminal law experts said the ruling will undoubtedly lead to more warrantless searches like this one. In practice, says George Washington University law professor Stephen Saltzburg, the decision means that "whenever the police have suspicion that there is drug activity going on in a particular apartment or house and they knock and they hear movement inside and any reasonable delay in opening the door, they are going to break it in."
Its not surprising at all that only self discribed conservatives are ok with this. I'm going to laugh if they break into your house while you are having sex or are on the jon.

Just yell, "It'll be a minute, ****ters full."
I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
The police have been allowed to break doors down without warrants on felons for years, so this is just an extension of that power & loss of freedoms.
It fits my long held statement; "Everytime you take away someone else's freedoms, you have just limited your own."
I can't think of a situation that couldn't be handled outside of the home, or requires a cop risking his life breaking in. How about setting off a charge on the sewer clean out before attempting to serve the warrant? That way you trap anything he trys to flush. In any event, there are ways to deal with drugs without stealing citizen rights and putting them in threatening situations.

A self described conservative started the post opposing this. Two more conservatives posted right afterwards agreeing that it was a bad ruling.
Only three people on a quick scan of the thread seems to be approving of this. The second of which was this post:
So you have three conservatives right off saying its a bad thing...you then have three people supporting it, with one of them being a liberal and the other being a conservative many of the conservatives on the board treat as an uncle tom.
And following that you had a handful of conservatives like BigFoot, Ikari, Harry, The Baron, and TAA all coming out against this. Indeed, you've had more conservatives in this thread criticizing it then you've had liberals.
What's not surprising is that a hyper partisan like yourself would rather ignore reality and read the thread but instead just immedietely go into "attack the right" mode based on stereotypes rather than reality.
"I am appalled that somebody who is the nominee...would take that kind of position"
"A court took away a presidency"
"...the brother of a man running for president was the governor of the state..."
It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo
