Weed Case Aftermath: Kansas Court Grants Po-Po Even More Search Power

Here's a quick reminder of fading American civil liberties as some random stoner who didn't speak clearly now helps law enforcement exert more command over an increasingly divided and hostile populace.

For those of us who aren't high all the time . . . This is a reminder to communicate respectfully but precisely with officers whilst explaining why the Magna Carta provides a justifiable excuse for going 61 in a 45.

Take a look . . .

Stupid idiot, if you stand aside and allow police to enter your domain to look around you deserve to be in jail and off the streets.

^^Refusing to consent is considered evidence of guilt.

Only white male police officers have "rights".

^^I'd refuse even if I didn't have anything illegal in my place.

The 4th Amendment.

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

The assault on the 1st, 2nd and 4th Amendments continues.

Hey it's Kansas, breathing will probably be interpreted as "giving consent", like it is for Rich Kids committing statutory rape in Manhattan.

7:52, how does giving consent to search one's apartment (whether given verbally or not) constitute an assault on the 1st 2nd and/or 4th Amendments?

It's a very common sense ruling.

Chuck, you forgot to mention that the 4th Amendment doesn't apply to women.

Republicans want the right to give women pelvic exams against their wishes to make sure they haven't had an abortion.

All Pro-Life men should be required to adopt a child with Down's Syndrome so they can stand up for what they claim they believe.

Doesn't matter what the Kansas Supreme Court says, if it goes against citizens' rights. Citizen's should use any means necessary to defend themselves. ... https://kslib.info/826/Kansas-Bill-of-Rights
