Franky and the Fourth Amendment

75 Comments »

January 5th, 2012 Posted 8:48 am

“Here’s the fourth amendment,” Admin says: “‘The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.'”

“So,” says Spence, “it looks to me that once Franky had sniffed out the fact of pot being in the house, the cops should have gotten a warrant, now having probable cause, and then made the bust.”

“Sounds right to me,” Admin says. “We’ll see what the Supremes say.”

“Might be fun to be a judge.”

“Better than a miner, to quote that old sketch.”

“What sketch is that?”

“You know.”

“I don’t.”

“Those Brits.”

“The Beatles?”

“No. You know – those funny guys.”

“The Beatles were pretty funny.”

“Which one was your favorite?”

“Let’s not start.”

“Here’s an interesting case,” Spence says. “Franky, a chocolate lab working the drug beat down in south Florida, sniffed pot from outside the front door of someone’s house, and on that basis the cops went in without asking.”

“And without a warrant?” Admin says.

“Exactly. Big 4th Amendment issue. I”m kind of surprised it hasn’t come up before this.”

“And what do you think? Legal or illegal?”

“Illegal,” Spence says. “And that’s what the Florida Supreme Court said. Now it looks like the state will appeal, meaning going all the way to the top.”

“Did they find any pot?”

“179 marijuana plants.”

“Half the country must be churning out homemade drug supplies,” Admin says.

“We’re a very industrious people. Goes all the way back to Ben Franklin.”

“You’re saying he was a pot grower?” says Admin.

“We’ll never know.”
