Supreme Court Spits on the 4th Amendment – Warrantless Searches Now Legal
Posted on May 17, 2011 by Mark Schumacher

The fourth Amendment was put into place to guarantee unwarranted search and seizures. To protect our homes, papers and effects against unreasonable searches and seizures. Looks like that all just got thrown out the window as Justice Alito incredibly remarked, “attempt to destroy evidence have only themselves to blame” something that will turn American into a unrecognizable banana republic.

In the Incredible 8-1 ruling handed down on 5/16/2011, the United States Supreme Court basically changed the course of how police will now do business. All they need is a strange sound before tearing apart somebody freedoms. Nobody here is condoning illegal drug use, but there is this 800 pound gorilla called the Constitution, something that when torn in half and thrown away, should send chills down the backs of millions of Americans.

The only dissenting Justice, Ruth Bader Ginsburg wrote:

    “The court today arms the police with a way routinely to dishonor the Fourth Amendment’s warrant requirement in drug cases,” Ginsburg wrote. “In lieu of presenting their evidence to a neutral magistrate, police officers may now knock, listen, then break the door down, never mind that they had ample time to obtain a warrant.”

    She said the Fourth Amendment’s “core requirement” is that officers have probable cause and a search warrant before they break into a house.

    “How ‘secure’ do our homes remain if police, armed with no warrant, can pound on doors at will and … forcibly enter?”

Where will this insanity stop America? Is this still the country that our forefathers gave to us some 265 years ago? Is this what they had in mind when they wrote the United States Constitution? Have Supreme court justices lost their minds? This is what happens when you have presidents in office who stack the deck, appointing these constitution benders.

If we keep re-writing the Constitution of the United States of America, what are we going to turn into? Now all the police have to hear is a strange noise inside of the house, and tear the damn door down! Something that is going to create havoc around our nation.

The Supreme Court decision arose from a case from Lexington, Kentucky, where police were banging on a door because they smelled marijuana. After identifying themselves, the police heard movement inside thinking that evidence was being destroyed. So they kicked the door down. There they found Hollis Deshaun King, smoking marijuana. They also found ****.

The problem was it was not the suspect they were looking for, still charging him with multiple counts, eventually giving him 11 years behind bars. The Kentucky Supreme Court heard the case and ruled that the drugs could not be used as evidence, obviously f no search warrant.

The case was then appealed to the United States Supreme Court. There, 8 out 9 justices disagreed with the state court and decided to tear apart the 4th Amendment to the Constitution, bringing America closer than ever to a police state.
