Jeff Adachi may have to reconsider some of the cases he’s been showing on Youtube with the warrantless searches of SRO’s, because the US Supreme Court just handed down a decision today on this very issue
From the Los Angeles Times today
The Supreme Court, in an 8-1 decision in a Kentucky case, says police officers who loudly knock on a door in search of illegal drugs and then hear sounds suggesting evidence is being destroyed may break down the door and enter without a search warrant.
The U.S. Supreme Court has made it significantly easier for police to force their way into a home without a warrant. On Monday, the court, by an 8-1 vote, upheld the warrantless search of an apartment after police smelled marijuana and feared that those inside were destroying incriminating evidence.
