How many people do you see survive an armed police standoff? And when they do, how many of them get a nice sentance afterwards?


There has been a change of procedure by the Police around here lately, because of the impersonations. If I showed that I was armed, didn't make any thretening moves and reached for the phone, this would probably work. If they wouldn't let me or started shooting then they aren't cops anyway.

I haven't read the latest "no knock" case that the supreme court heard.

I was told that someone was trying to have evidence excluded because police didn't knock and announce first.

In other words, that the warrant was improperly executed.


The precedent about police having no obligation to protect an individual goes back to the early 1960's in California, when police were sued for failing to arrive before a criminal act was completed.

In the near future, the next step will probably be that you must give the police a copy of your house keys.

Now that they're allowed to just enter, there will be more added to it in the future. next will be home inspections in the name of national security - just to be sure that you are living legally. And, of course, folks will just let it happen and say that if you have nothing to hide, let them look.

I hear boths sides - I still don't like this ruling, and I have nothing to hide.

Now.. there are times when Police can force entry, dont get me wrong.. For example.. if the arrive to a Domestic dispute.. and they can hear screaming or what not and no one answers.. Yes.. I think they can force entry.. and that should continue.. But.. I am totally against this Nazi crap.. As it was posted earlier.. What's next? Searches to make sure you're living legally? nothing to hide nothing to fear? well.. Hamilton County Ohio has laws against pornography.. ALL FORMS.. not anything sick.. Just two consenting adults getting paid to get it on.. Im sure there would be alot of arrests if something like these searches were able to take place..

This is an invasion of privacy and safety and the courts and government know that the majority of Americans still get scared when they hear the word "Terror" SO!.. they invent ways for the American people to just give up thier rights without question
