Knock Knock Knockin’ On Fascism’s Door

“Justices made it easier Thursday for officers armed with search warrants to barge into homes without knocking or waiting. Evidence collected in those searches doesn’t have to be thrown out, the justices decided 5-4.” Read the full story here.

And now we’re seeing evidence of the police state unzipping it’s fly and revealing its oh-so-subtle furor over its citizens.

That a policeman must knock before entering a home is a legal tradition that dates back to the 13th century. (I hear that on the radio — can’t back it up with a reference sorry.) But regardless, this important safeguard of privacy has now been 86’ed like the town drunk.

Anywhere, anytime, police may break your door down and search your house without even knocking. A warrant is required, of course. That is unless the President wants to do it …

Sleep well, Americans.
