Philly Police Search for Things That Would Warrant a Search Warrant

When is a search warrant not needed? When you’re looking to drum up charges that would warrant a  search warrant, of course. Or so goes the thinking of Capt. Dennis Wilson of the 9th District.

“They’re a hate group. We’re trying to drum up charges against them, but unfortunately we’ll probably have to let them go.”

The ‘terror group’ in question in question were 4 North Philadelphia residents who had circulated a petition questioning police surveillance cameras.

Vanore said that when Moffat and others declined to identify themselves and cooperate, police entered the property because “they had probable cause to believe there was trespassing or even burglarizing.”

Once inside, Vanore said, police saw things that prompted them to obtain a search warrant, such as protest literature, anti-police graffiti on walls…

How dare a citizen express outrage against overreaching police and then write about it? No charges were filed but the house was duly trashed beyond livability. That’ll teach those pesky Bill of Rights loonies a thing or two, huh? The rest of the article is in The Inky.

    This fascist scumbag actually doesn’t know the nine different kinds of whatthehelliswrongwitchoo he is suffering from. He actually thinks it’s his job to violate rights of people investigating and agitating against…previous violations of rights. Sick, scary stuff. These guys make Rizzo look like a saint.
