    The 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled that police don't need a warrant if they're searching a home "for their safety." This sets a dangerous precedent for ushering us into a full bore police state.

    "This decision is the latest roll-back of safeguards to protect the people from being at the mercy of a police state," said Joe Cook, executive director of the ACLU of Louisiana. "Allowing law enforcement to search homes without probable cause or any warrant makes a dramatic and dangerous departure from one of our most fundamental American freedoms."

    I suppose this is one of the few times i'll agree with the ACLU. And leave it to the still French controlled New Orleans to come up with a ruling like this....:rolleyes: I think that something like this would end up at the Supreme Court and reversed rather readily.
