Why The Knock Rule Matters

The United States Supreme Court recently ruled that police did not have to wait before barging in a house if they had a search warrant.

Yikes has an excellent post with stories of why this ruling was an exceptionally bad one; and just how many things can go wrong when the police have unfettered power to raid someone's private home.

Thanks for the link! I think it is so important for people to understand why this matters.

When did we ALL become suspects? Are the people in power so corrupt and dishonest that they must project that on ALL of us? I guess so.
