Be Careful Probationers! The Police Don’t Need Much to Get in Your Home

10Apr12

To support a probation search, officers needed only a “reasonable suspicion” to conclude that the probationer owned, controlled, or possessed an item within the probationer’s residence, and did not have to meet the higher standard of probable cause.      United States v. Bolivar – filed February 29, 2012

I’m sure you are all aware by now that “reasonable suspicion” doesn’t mean much, and that police officer’s have an uncanny ability to suspect the general public of being guilty of something.  Whether they are being “reasonable” or not is ALWAYS the question.
