Boston Door to Door Searches

What say you - legit or not?

We can clearly say there were no warrants issued.

I would argue that some of these searches were not consensual either.

Combine these two, and you get illegit.

Go.

Likely an excessive application of exigent circumstances.

What I found hilarious in some... discussions on facebook is that people were arguing that any warrantless  and non-consensual searches were legit under the hot pursuit exemption.

Hot pursuit... right... that's why they didn't chase the guy into a particular dwelling. In fact, if I recall correctly, he was actually found outside of the search area. Yup, hot pursuit alright..

I think it's clear that the non-consensual searchers were illegal.  The frisking of homeowners was illegal.  The pointing of weapons at homeowners was assault.  For the most part the entire operation was over-kill.  And it sickens me.

Looking forward to having more smites than posts.  Thanks all.
The above are my opinions only.  Please seek an attorney concerning all questions of law.

The frisking of homeowners was illegal.

Frisking for what? If I were in the lockdown area I would have armed myself with whatever I had. My gun would be in open view. Does this mean they went around confiscating guns or checking serial numbers? If a bomber is loose in my town and I was told to stay inside and not answer the door then I would have armed myself for personal protection.

I never did hear the frisking part but then again there is so much news around the entire ordeal I just missed it.

Like I have asked, how much do we take? How much do "WE" allow? No one has drawn a line in the sand...

The Harvard Report is out on the police response to the Boston bombing.  It was chock full of police f'ups.
