It saddens me to see the Constitution butchered like this.

i could of sworn this applied to every state, as long as someone in the house lets the officers in an if whatever was out in the open or clearly seen to be agianst the law then they are allowed to follow up on it. otherwise without anything being out in the open they cant do a thing. if im mistaken even if they are there for a noise complaint if they have resonable cause an they are let in then they will follow up.

yes once again it's always been that way. Have you ever heard of plain view? If a cop is called to my residence on a dog barking call, and I allow him/her to enter my residence to discuss the matter, the cop had better have one hell of a good explination justification for making a sweep of my home for his/her safety.
In order to have fear for their safety they had dam well better be able to articulate that fear in a report so that any reasonable person can understand that so called concern for their safety and realize it was justified and that "sweeping" the residence was a necessary action.
Just a barking dog call would not do that.
Don't ya think you should consider all of the scenerios before passing judgement?
