Supreme Court: Police Don't Need Warrant To Kick Your Door Down, Shoot Your Dog
The police do not need a warrant to enter a home if they smell burning marijuana, knock loudly, announce themselves and hear what they think is the sound of evidence being destroyed, the Supreme Court ruled on Monday in an 8-to-1 decision.
"Police! We were walking by and heard evidence being destroyed! Open the door in the next tenth of a second or we're going to damage your property, kill your dog in front of your children, and find out that you were just blending a smoothie!" [NYT]
