    Another case showing judges might know the 4th amend

    http://media.ca11.uscourts.gov/opini.../201515659.pdf

    This one involves a cop going to the door of a dwelling, blocking the door when owner tried to close, getting a broken nose etc.

    The owner sued him for unlawful entry (all charges related to his battery on the cop ? Acquitted of the charges ~~ but really there should never have any charges at all --- the .govs can brake the law with relative impunity? rubbish).

    It will be interesting to see how this plays out.

    Note: It is definitely worth reading the court opinion at the link provided by the OPer. Even though there is an open question of law, there is lots of settled law available right in the opinion. Plenty of law available in a short reading. I dare say that when it comes to learning law on the right against unreasonable search and seizure, this case packs more lessons into less space than most.

    Thanks for posting, McBeth.

    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    Very instructive indeed...
    But Bratt put his arm across her chest to prevent her from approaching George. Immediately, George yelled “domestic violence” and began pushing on the door.
    Judge Dredd policing at its best. Amazing that this nitwit retains his job.

    It is AFAIK original to me. Compromise is failure on the installment plan, particularly when dealing with so intractable an opponent as ignorance. - Nightmare

    Not any worse that the OEO loudly telling the unconscious person to "stop resisting" as the OEO is attempting to handcuff his victim!

    Or 2 different OEO's pulling the same arm different directions and loudly yelling at the owner of the arm to "stop resisting"!
    RIGHTS don't exist without RESPONSIBILITY!
    If one is not willing to stand for his rights, he doesn't have any Rights.
    I will strive to stand for the rights of ANY person, even those folks with whom I disagree!
    As said by SVG--- "I am not anti-COP, I am PRO-Citizen" and I'll add, PRO-Constitution.
    If the above makes me a RADICAL or EXTREME--- So be it!
