OAKLAND _ A six-month pilot program where Oakland police officers would knock on doors and ask permission to search homes for guns got the green light from the City Council's public safety committee Tuesday night.

The consent-to-search program, as it is called, is based closely on a similar effort launched in St. Louis in 1994 and on ongoing programs in Boston and Washington, D.C. The idea is simple: To ask parents for permission to search their homes for weapons their children may be hiding.

There is nothing untowards about this...
You just say, "no, thank-you"
I'm not even sure why they (police) would need any approval to do this.

This has to be the most useless program ever...they might find 2 guns. Why would they need approval to ask, they could have asked anyway?

It's intimidation, that's all this amounts to. Keep the people afraid and on edge.
