Another Right has Been Removed

It’s a sad day in hell when one of the more left wing supreme court justices is the only one who sees the obvious here.

The Supreme Court on Monday gave police more leeway to break into residences in search of illegal drugs.

The justices in an 8-1 decision said officers who loudly knock on a door and then hear sounds suggesting evidence is being destroyed may break down the door and enter without a search warrant.

Residents who “attempt to destroy evidence have only themselves to blame” when police burst in, said Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr.

In a lone dissent, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said she feared the ruling in a Kentucky case will give police an easy way to ignore the 4th Amendment. “Police officers may not knock, listen and then break the door down,” she said, without violating the 4th Amendment.

Our constitutional rights are being stripped away all the the name of “protecting society.” Let’s be real here, the war on drugs has been a colossal and expensive failure. Not only has it turned many neighbors to the south into lawless nightmares, it has empowered gangs and organized crime in utterly insane ways. We are losing our rights wile our world is becoming more dangerous.

How is that a good thing? It needs to stop. Prohibition does not work.

  1.  I didn’t like the ruling, either…

    Remember, though, this group of “winners” said it’s okay for the government to take away your home when a business offers a better deal to the tax collector — and they don’t have to pay a fair price for your home!

    Recent rulings have to make you scratch your head if you’re paying attention!

    I would kind of hope that just more than $4 gasoline and much higher food prices — 20%-30% on many basic dairy items — would make people think about who they’re voting for.

    I don’t honestly think I’ve seen so many screwed up things going on around in my lifetime and so many real-life supervillains getting away with crookedness.

    Thank our massively empty-headed MSM which is in bed with these guys for lying to us for so long…

  2. Jesus.  First Kelo and now this.  
    I say, with all seriousness, we may be heading for genuine bloody revolution in this country.

    • That’s exactly what I’m afraid.

      I’m young enough to be up to my eyeballs in it and I don’t honestly know what I’d do…  I hope I’d do the right thing.

      The consistency of the government’s crookedness and the disconnect of this group of politicians from the majority of us is just utterly breathtaking.

      I don’t like where things are trending and the damn news is obsessed with the latest celebrity gossip B.S. (give the Shriver-Schwarzenegger break-up a rest — it’s NOT the most important news in the world!) or trying to spin it where Obama actually sounds like a good President!
