The Courts - Farther Down the Road to Hell
This is an extraordinary case: Our court approves, without blinking, a police sweep of a person's home without a warrant, without probable cause, without reasonable suspicion and without exigency - in other words, with nothing at all to support the entry except the curiosity police always have about what they might find if they go rummaging around a suspect’s home. Once inside, the police managed to turn up a gun "in plain view" - stuck between two cushions of the living room couch - and we reward them by upholding the search.
Did I mention that this was an entry into somebody's home, the place where the protections of the Fourth Amendment are supposedly at their zenith?
- Federal Judge Alex Kozinski, dissenting in U.S. v. Lemus, as cited in this essay by Kevin Baker

If you really believe that, you will have an extraordinarily difficult time in the coming months and years.
