    More search & seizure issues . . .

    I read in yesterday's Dallas paper, that the Federal Court of Appeals in New Orleans ruled that police can do a cursory search of your home/apt to look for safety problems without a search warrant, and if they see something you shouldn't have, they can take it as evidence and use it against you in court.

    So, if the neighbor's house has a gas leak, or had a roof fire, they can walk through your place to make sure you don't have any safety problems. Should they notice a vial or whatever, or catch you while cooking up a fresh batch of magic, it's tough toenails for you.

    I suppose I should point out that this is a conservative court, so y'all who bad mouth liberal judges know which side to thank for the further erosion of your right to privacy.

    i beginning to enjoy counting how many times the constitution has been walked on in the last couple of years. whats worse is that i keep hearing things like "they wont abuse their power" and the like. to me the point is that the constitution has served this country well for a couple hundred years now, but in our panic and fear from the last couple of years we have, as a society, been perfectly willing to walk away from our fundamental freedoms to increase our illusion of safety. this is just another example of a flagrent foul by the powers that be.
    sometimes you hope the sheep will wake up and realize they are being led in the wrong direction.
