AMA Working To Protect Your Curtilage!

"Last week we reported on Collins v Virginia making its way to the Supreme Court, a Fourth Amendment case challenging a police officer’s right to lift a bike cover to look at a (stolen) motorcycle in a private driveway without a warrant. "

AMA: "Motorcycles should receive no less protection from unreasonable searches than other vehicles. When the police removed the cover from Petitioners’ motorcycle, a search occurred. And as Petitioner contends, because that search occurred without a warrant and in the curtilage of a home, the search violated the Fourth Amendment."


what do you think?

While I hate thieves, I don't think the rights of individuals should be violated in order to help solve a crime.  Procedures are meant to be followed and should not be bypassed by lazy detectives/police officers.  I doubt the SCOTUS will weigh in favor of these types of searches as this will open a "can of worms" in relation to other less severe crimes such as citing for having an out of state motorcycle, equipment violations, etc.

from that pic it looks like police would have to come on private property to randomly lift a motorcycle cover.  hate thieves but seems like a warrant would've been required.
If you are offended by my posts that's your problem

Ben Franklin said it well.
"Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety."
Get a warrant then bust the m-f'er.

If at first you don't succeed, chuck it all in and go for a ride!

"If someone doesn’t value logic, what logical argument could you provide to show the importance of logic?"
