"Officers have been climbing through open windows and leaving calling cards to alert residents to the threat of leaving their property insecure.

One lone woman was shocked when a uniformed officer walked into her front room while she was watching TV. Civil liberties campaigners last night demanded an end to the scheme, calling it an invasion of privacy.

Daniel Hamilton, of the Big Brother Watch campaign group, said: “This case is symptomatic of the rapid growth of the nanny state. For police officers to be entering people’s homes without invitation is at best hugely ­invasive and, at worse, legally dubious. Trespassing on private property, regardless of any good intention you may have, is a crime."

Live in fear!!! Lock your doors!!! If this happened in the US they would be getting shot. These police have no respect for these citizens to just barge in on them in there homes. It is probably just to mentally prepare people for this happening on a regular basis, you know, in case there is terrorists in there homes.

If this is true, it is absolutely the last line crossed into a Police State. WE decide when to lock OUR doors to OUR house on OUR property.

This has to be stopped now and for any one to lay back and go along with the propaganda that this is for our own safety...enough already! Tired of hearing it and it's you people that are allowing the onset of Martial Law with only a whimper from the people.

Don't you get it? This is the soft invasion and mental preparation for the Police State that they want you to get accustomed to. Is this what you want your kids to inherit?

Not me.

And BTW, the last line in the article: "Burglars are creatures of habit, they are opportunist.”

Works this way as well, "Police are creatures of habit, they are opportunist.”

How would this play out if the people whom's house was invaded illegally by police were doing something illegal (say a victemless crime like smoking dope).

Would they be arrested, would court dismiss it, would the officer be sued etc?

Seems like entrapment to me.

And what happens when someone bats him upside the head with a Louisville Slugger? Or puts a little perforation on his chest with the home protection unit in self defense? What then?
