Cops Threaten to Kill Man’s Dogs for not Letting them Illegally Search his Home

“we’re gonna bust in your door with a battering ram, we’re gonna shoot and kill your dogs…… and then we’re going to ransack your house”

A Kansas City man says he’s been terrified since an encounter with police on Monday evening. He says officers came to his home in southeast Kansas City looking for people he’d never heard of and when he refused to let them inside, things turned ugly.

When a true genius appears in the world, you may know him by this sign: that the dunces are all in confederacy against him. ~J. Swift

An associate professor

of criminal justice is not a legal expert. Lawyers are legal experts, they graduated from law school and passed the bar. Criminal justice is the study of how the system functions, police, courts, prisons, etc.

I take it from the statement this professor made, that a warrant is the best way, not the only way to search. This is the mushy message college students get from professors like him. It is why when kids in college get stopped by police here, the first thing out of their mouths is, "I'm a criminal justice major at the University." It's enough to make me cringe.

A warrant is the only way police can search your home.

An associate professor of criminal justice . . . ?

The legal expert they questioned about this, John Hamilton is paraphrased as saying, "Having a warrant is always the best way for police to search a home" . . . No, sorry, that's the only legal way it can ever be done. The 4th Amendment - essentially meaningless at Park University, also essentially meaningless to Kansas City police.

His weakest words were

"while the threats aren’t illegal, they might violate a department policy." WTF?

That was no paraphrase, that was a quote! Mr. Hamilton, were armed thugs in uniform to shout malicious and violent threats, and act up as these did at YOUR door; might you feel like some department policy decision made far away from this assault was less legal than you profess?!

Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have the exact measure of the injustice and wrong which will be imposed on them. - Frederick Douglass

If a "cop" comes...

If a "cop" comes into your house illegally here in Indiana, you can shoot them by law. Oh, btw, we just made switch blades legal again...LOVE being a Hoosier.

Reminds me of a movie where the best "shot" came later

but at what a price! I'm sure it was based on a true story...

4th Amendment...

“we’re gonna bust in your door with a battering ram, we’re gonna shoot and kill your dogs…… and then we’re going to ransack your house”

Present your warrant FIRST or you'll be viewed as a lethal and imminent threat. Shoot my dogs and you'll risk being shot. End of story.

John Hamilton, the Associate Professor of Criminal Justice at Park University, is a total numbskull as he says, "I just think it's a dangerous way to do policing, because it makes it tenuous when you appear in front of the court in a case like that."

How about because it's wrong, illegal, and immoral!

He also mentions that having a warrant is always the best way to search a home.

How about mentioning that in most cases, such as this one, that having a warrant is the only legal way to search a home.

If he's a typical example of a Professor of Criminal Justice, yes, we are at large quite desensitized to the encroachment of a horrific police state.

What kind of person does it

What kind of person does it take to be a cop?

Be Your Own Media!!!

That's easy !!!

Look for someone that is a thug, bully and criminal and they are not already in jail or dead.
