Does anyone know if the folks in Boston were able to decline searches to their property during the man hunt for the alleged bomber? What happened if
you simply didn't answer the door? Hopefully someone from the Watertown area can answer if their 4th amendment rights were respected. Personally if
I saw a group of heavily armed persons on my door step I would be disinclined to allow them entry to my home. If they don't have a warrant they
aren't coming inside my property.
I wondered that myself. You know someone did.
I also wondered how many people where arrested for other things a LEO might have seen as they walked through peoples homes. Drug paraphernalia,
unlicensed guns, etc.
