why they were in his house in the first place and another lady said she let them in because they said they asked to search it! How stupid was that? Doesn't she know cops are like vampires and need permission to enter? (unless it's the new 'shelter-in-place crap) I'm not defending the cops in any way - I couldn't hear what the cop replied but the kid taping said they were looking for marijuana. The cop only said there was a 911 call, as far as I could hear. But did they produce a warrant to search the house? That's never mentioned. The homeowner said that the 911 was false so why don't they arrest that person and the cops didn't say a word.
Alaska Constitution mirrors exactly the US Constitution 4th Amendment
Section 1.14 - Searches and Seizures.
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses and other property, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated. 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.
Also Alaska Constitution
Section 1.19 - Right to Keep and Bear Arms.
A well-regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. The individual right to keep and bear arms shall not be denied or infringed by the State or a political subdivision of the State.
Section 1.22 - Right of Privacy.
The right of the people to privacy is recognized and shall not be infringed. The legislature shall implement this section. [Approved August 22, 1972]
People need to know their state's Constitution. Not all of them have the Peoples' rights spelled out.
If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy.
