Cops fake 911 calls to do warrantless searches

PostBy: lsayre On: Mon Jul 14, 2014 6:04 pm

And apparently its legal!

The tactic is apparently legal — and commonplace — according to an officer’s sworn statements. WTVD-TV explains:

A Durham police officer admitted under oath that he lied in order to gain entry to a home and to serve an outstanding warrant.

During a court hearing last May, court officials say he told a District Court judge that it was a common practice within Durham’s police department.

He said he knocked on a resident’s door, claiming police had received a 9-1-1 hang up call. But, it never happened.

Dirty cops are the lowest form of life on the planet, bar none :mad: gimme a welfare junkie every time! I also believe that it is better to let 100 guilty persons walk than incarcerate one innocent person..........

We call that a "West Warwick warrant" around here. One cop knocks at the front door, his partner stands around back and yells "COME IN!"

The cop kicks the door in and can rightfully claim he heard "someone" give him permission to enter.

I'd like to see how well that tactic stands up in court under the 4th amendment.

And "apparently" the Police Chief doesn't think it's legal either.

"............ The tactic was pervasive enough for the Durham police chief to issue a department memo immediately calling for its disuse:


It has recently been brought to my attention that some officers have informed citizens that there has been a 911 hang-up call from their residence in order to obtain consent to enter for the actual purpose of looking for wanted persons on outstanding warrants. Effective immediately no officer will inform a citizen that there has been any call to the emergency communications center, including a hang-up call, when there in fact has been no such call.

– Jose L. Lopez, Sr., Chief of Police "

While I respect and appreciate most of the police and the difficult jobs that they do. I do believe it is rare that a situation is deescalated once police arrive anywhere.

I would say that has more to do with location and the type of people the police have to deal with rather than just the police showing up. I've seen many instances that didn't get out of hand once police arrived, but none of those instances were in poor areas of a city.

Alot of the "bad boys" from my school days, in later years, either wound up in jail, or became cops. The ones I know of became really good cops too because of it. They had a special understanding of how bad guys think. ;)

Just like the old saying, "It takes one to know one." Quite often that can turn out to be an advantage for good.

That is true! But the ones I know are/were the worst drunks and got away with it BECAUSE they were cops. Hell, our district attorney was the biggest drunk around! He would be in the bar and they didn't want him driving, but he always said he "WAS THE LAW" and never got busted. He died a few years ago and you wouldn't believe the accolades he received about being this upstanding lawyer. Almost made you sick.

It's been my experience that

1,) ex-military make the best and most honest LEO's.

2.) Guys who were wimps in school who become cops are the worst, they have a chip on the shoulders and are in a constant struggle to get back at their perceived bullies.

3.) I see much of the same characteristics in Women Cops as I do in category #2.
