Human beings really are a cancER on this earth.


No, some human beings are a cancer on this earth.
The rest of us just try and scrape by.


Some of us think outside the box and try to cure the cancer.

The cures arent very forthcoming.

The bitching is endless, but cures? No.

Are you letting people know about the problem? You are here, right? Did the story go viral? He's screwed and soon won't be able to afford Vaseline.

Soon, the disease will have a cure. It'll be people like you and I who had enough. We'll tell two friends, they will tell two friends, and so on. It's always darkest before the dawn. Keep on plugging.

And that, my friends, is insanity at its finest.

This system is *broken*


No, it makes perfect sense. No double jeopardy is a very important part of the law. Otherwise you could be retried by the government over and over until they finally find you guilty of whatever crime they want. Even if they never got a conviction they could ruin you in legal fees.

Illegally obtained evidence being inadmissible is also important if you want your constitutional protections to have any meaning whatsoever.

I'm just taking a wild guess that the officer is white
say what you want but if he was black or hispanic he'd be under the jail right now.

originally posted by: OneManArmyOf course not, Im not calling for illegal searches and seizures, which should apply in public. Or inside your private car.

Regardless, they DID search his property and found child porn. And simply because of a small technicality not only does he get off, but the evidence obtained can never be used against him?
Did this guy even get put on some sort of sex register?
Or is this a manufactured story being used to whip up emotion to justify changing laws?
It got me if it is.


They'll most likely watch him for CP now that they know it's there. He needs to do something to justify a warrant though in order for what he currently has to be searched. You may not like that it's protecting someone into CP here but I guarantee you would like it even less if a cop searched through your home because everyone is doing something wrong and they want to find a law you're breaking.

By throwing out this trial, the evidence has never been used against him so unless he destroys it, it can be collected and used in the future if/when he screws up.

This story is all about using an emotional appeal to change laws. Please think about this rationally, or better yet take a couple of intro classes on law and trials.

He was suspected of one crime and got caught out for another - That's fair game and tough luck for him.

If your house gets an arrest warrant because they think you've done some sort of theft and they then discover you actually have a meth lab in your basement you couldnt expect the cops to be like "Well, we weren't looking for that so were not gonna prosecute you for it"

Dont be daft!


Wrong. That is precisely how the law works. Probable cause is a requirement for a warrant, and a warrant allows a search and seizure of only precisely what the warrant specifies. If they find something unrelated to the warrant they cannot use it at that point in time.

Yes, thats what I thought.
And did say as much.

I dont think this is so much about the law, but more about the use of propaganda to change it.

so lets say this same scenario resulted in a sex slave, found in the cellar all chained and gagged?
Or they found da da DAAAAA "A BOMB" and loads of jihadist material on his computer?
Would your same loophole still stand?


A captive prisoner is allowed to escape, even if aided by the police so it's not really the same thing. The prisoner being alive would be able to press charges as well, which would then give cause to search the premises and find evidence.

The bomb and terrorist plans should be protected but thanks to the Patriot Act and NDAA there is an exception that says anything terrorism related isn't protected. The police would wrongfully be allowed to arrest and prosecute in that case.

Thanks for clearing that up, I guessed as much with regards to terrorist related material.
Was trying to throw a hypothetical, you batted it out the ballpark.
