Thor in fucking Valhalla… the government isn’t even attempting to hide the fact that this entire country has turned into a damned police state. First an Indiana court ruled that peasents have no right to resist unlawful police entry and now the Supreme Court has ruled that police may use any noise inside a home as probably cause that evidence is being destroy:
The justices in an 8-1 decision said officers who loudly knock on a door and then hear sounds suggesting evidence is being destroyed may break down the door and enter without a search warrant.
Residents who “attempt to destroy evidence have only themselves to blame” when police burst in, said Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr.
So what kinds of sounds could suggest evidence is being destroy? Well if an officer can articulate his reasoning why the sound of that vacuum cleaner made him believe evidence was being destroyed a door breaking they may go. At least there was one dissenter in the Supreme Court:
In a lone dissent, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said she feared the ruling in a Kentucky case will give police an easy way to ignore the 4th Amendment. “Police officers may not knock, listen and then break the door down,” she said, without violating the 4th Amendment.
I’m not sure if you’ve been alerted to this face Justice Ginsburg but the 4th Amendment is dead and buried. The police no longer need a warrant to enter your home, they simply need to hear noises that may possibly mean evidence of some sort is being destroyed. Basically this ruling is the government giving a huge middle finger and telling you to bend over and get ready for a collapsible baton up the ass.
Welcome to the United Police State of America. Feel free to do whatever you want since everything is illegal. Seriously though fuck the state.
