I own a property. The taxes are paid in full. Doesn't matter where it is, Anywhereville, USA.

What section of the US Constitution, or what Amendment in the Bill of Rights or anywhere else, gives you the right / permission to come dump a great big dookie on my lawn or front step?

I know, right?

Imo, put up no trespassing signs and shoot the bastards.

Actually, I'm being 100% serious.

I have a reason for asking this question.

I would argue there is exactly zero right/permission to do this provided under the US Constitution and it's Amendments.

It would depend. Is imminent domain involved? Military base? There are occasions where -- though not right -- such takeovers of private property are deemed legal. I think a person should be able to defend their property against all comers, but then I'm I tad old-fashioned.

Do you mean literally ? As in, someone defecated on your property/front steps ?

If so, I have a short story that taught a neighborhood lady a well deserved lesson.

She had a dog she walked and would let it go anywhere it wanted, without cleaning it up. Over time, it stopped and peed on several of my roses and constantly left a pile in the yard.
I confronted her about it and she said "It's only a little dog poop" I said "Ok" and then proceeded to take both my Great Pyrenees for a walk....straight to her house when they both left nice deposits. She saw us and I just smiled and waved. Never had a problem after that.

Not imminent doman, or a Military base. No Rights of Way. Just my property.

Human or animal?

Not looking for payback here, at all.

I want to know what provision of the US Constitution gives someone the right/permission to do this with impunity.

I am arguing that there is not one.

That would probably fall under state/local tresspassing and health/biohazard laws.
Probably vandalism type laws as well.

But what if those state laws were challenged on a Constitutional basis?

What provision of the Constitution permits this?

Have to agree with you there. That's trespassing and unless they are LE with a valid warrant, there's no reason for them to be there without your permission.

I'm pretty sure the kind of person that takes a # on your doorstep probably doesn't care if the constitution grants them the right to do this...

That's horrible, yuk.

I'm thinking prank by some sad mad teen or the like.

I recommend sticking a wireless IP cam up to cover the area.

And a swift kick to the arse with a pair of Doc Martens if you catch the dirty fecker.

Someone that crazy might have dna on file.
Pay for a dna test and bring it to the cops.
That would be hilarious
Then call the news when you located the turd burglar.
Personally, I run a ring system with cameras everywhere.

Constitution is only a limit on the Federal Government. And only when acting as the Federal Government. Nancy Pelosi is free to stop by and drop a deuce like she is back home on t(e streets of San Francisco because she is there as herself and not in an official capacity as Speaker of the House (or Outhouse depending on your opinion here).

So local laws would get her, right? Nope. Not if she was on the way to or from the House because they have immunity to State and Local arrest. How about that for a perk. No wonder crooks flock to a career in DC.

There is a motive to my madness here, there really is.

I'm just waiting for someone to provide a Constitutional argument.

I am not being facetious, or joking.

You have to review local, county, state and federal laws.

State constitution and the US constitutions exist. You will want to review both.

A lawyer will shed more light.

I don't care about State laws! Or even Federal laws.

This is purely a Constitutional question.

At the National level, I agree. In some states trespassing, especially at night, can get you shot.
