Police state of California?

Police state of California?

(1:36) May 10, 2013: Police officers are called out to a private home for a noise complaint in Cotati, California. This is what happened. The three occupants were arrested for obstruction. From Wikipedia: The Fourth Amendment is the part of the Bill of Rights which guards against unreasonable searches and seizures, along with requiring any warrant to be judicially sanctioned and supported by probable cause.

motz..After much travelling now aged 75 I suggest you try living in China,North Korea Libya or any where else on this less than perfect planet. This man was an ass who tried to make a point in a most stupid way. Any sensible person would have just spoken quietly and let the officers in. I would have made them a cup of coffee as they are there to protect me as well as every one else to the best of their ability.

Yeah, it all seems pretty funny until the cops break down _your_ door and taze _ your_ balls. This is the big difference I've seen between British and American police. The former do everything possible to avoid confrontation, the latter seem to relish and precipitate it. "Protect and Serve" has become "Abuse and Intimidate."

Don't know too much about American Law, but if domestic abuse or violence is suspected, they have to check to see if everyone is ok, which means going in the house. The guy filming didn't help his cause by not allowing them in the house. What harm would it actually do just letting them in to check all was in order? Then, if he wanted, he could put in a complaint.

Do you realy think that the police have nothing better to do tan bully people? They are there to help! In case of imminent danger to anyone in my household I would want them to come in and make sure that everything is OK. What harm does it to to let them check you house? They are harming your rights? Better be glad they are there for you if you call them.

Thank you for identifying yourself as one of the "sheeple" that people mock. Your advice is that innocent people should suck it up and accept assault and intrusion and NOT expect officers of the law to obey the law (in this case, have a warrant). You're a special kind of stupid, aren't you?

...and what authority does the government have to order someone to leave their own house? A warrantless entry is per se unreasonable, says our jurisprudence. If the police respond to a noise complaint and hear no noise, they should move on to the next complaint instead of kicking in doors without a warrant.

They have to check. It's reasonable. If he is not satisfied with the explanation or he thinks it was on purpose he can sew them. But if he refuses to obey he risks to be forced to compliance. It's his choice.

Okay, maybe I'm an idiot. And I respect rights etc. Why the big deal to refuse to come out and speak with the Police? They have no reason to come in, if you come out. Were the cops excessive? Don't know. I saw a minute and half of footage in what was probably a 10 minute confrontation. There is information missing.

so the policemen responded to a complaint that there's domestic violence in the house. Maybe the couple was holding hostage their own daughter and forced her to prostitute herself, maybe those weren't the owners but only claimed to be them, maybe his wife called and made the complaint but got forced by the husband to say that there's no domestic violence, or maybe... that dick upset one of his neighbors and the neighbor called it in knowing full well that the owner was a dick and that he was going to get tazed... all kind of different scenarios come to mind. The police had probable cause and they were right to go in and they were right to taze them. That's what you get for being a moron.
