Knock Knock

Who's there?

Police.

Police who?

Police. Can we come in and search your house without a warrant, without probable cause, without anything that would even remotely seem like we have any reason at all to be in your house? Pretty please?

This is a bright freaking idea:
  • [Washington DC] The Metropolitan Police Department yesterday moved cautiously into its program to ask to search homes in the District for illegal guns while civil rights activists knocked on doors and used bullhorns to keep residents from participating.
  • The department initiated its program by distributing literature at police stations and Boys and Girls Clubs to gauge public interest. It plans to begin the searches in two weeks.

    Police spokeswoman Traci Hughes said the Safe Home program attempts to reach parents or guardians who think or know their children have guns and will offer amnesty for certain gun- and drug-possession charges.

The Washington DC police department has promised to overlook any found drugs, housing violations or anything else that could come to light during these voluntary searches. The ACLU of course, doubts this and frankly, so do we. Does anyone really think if the police ran across something like the "Keystone kids" living in squalor and inhuman conditions that no one would go to jail? Or a meth lab? Or some beaten and bruised domestic victim? Of course not.

As the article notes, there are already mechanisms in place for parents to get unwanted guns and drugs out of their houses - call the police, be a parent, and get junior on the right track.

But to have the police go door-to-door and ask for guns? Someone keep the mayor away from the TV, radio, newspapers and internet for a few days.

And if the gun recovered is tested for ballistics and reflects it was used in 2 maybe 3 homicides, well we will just ignore that information too.

the police here have to follow the rules but in foreign countries the police make up the rules as they go. that's why crime is rampant here--- we allow it to happen without keeping it in check. we could keep it in check but our hands are tied due to all the do gooders and their liberal bs.

Even as a retired CPD officer, I found out my son who is living with us had guns in his bedroom. I asked him, Son why do you have guns in my house! That is wrong.

He said, Dad your the one who talked me into being a chicago cop like you!

I said, sorry son!

Here's my question. What if one of these 17 yo honor roll students while away attending classes, mother allows the police to search thier residence, and a murder weapon is found, can that really hold up in court?

Sort of sets hisotry back 300 years. I'm sure you will hear the DC residents yelling in the streets as the cops come to do the searches, "The Blue Coats are Coming, The Blue Coats are coming." I know the Chicago Aldermen think its a great idea, as long as it's in someone else's ward.

SCC is showing it has a bit of time on the job; The Keystone Kids - many have no clue what/who they were. Funny aside: it was SOS (some of who I believe are currently incarcerated) that found Mayfae Melton and family's filthy bastard children "fighting over bones with the family dog" at 219 North. I wonder if that was some old school SOS HI that backfired on the fellas? Either way, that was some super embellished paper.

First of all, probable cause doesn't get you into a house - no matter what they may have told you. Probable cause is what GETS you the warrant.

Second, as long as you can get "knowing" consent, then doors be open and search away.

Personally I could give shit, but I'm sick of people mis-stating the law.

I don't know why you say the paper was embellished. All the video of the place showed the absolute squalor those kids were living in. An industrial strength power washer couldn't have cleaned that place up.

Or are you one of the "Keystone" family members, who said "The POE-LEECES did this to MY house! They came in and threw all this garbage around."

Or is this just another slap at SOS? Get over it. There are a lot of good officers in and from SOS. A few were bad apples. They have tarnished not only SOS but all of us at CPD. So when you are slamming them, just remember that everyone who isn't the police that reads this blog, just bundles all of us together. So STFU you two minute wonder!

Years ago the SS came for my neighbor's guns and none of us helped him, Several days later they came for him. Then they came for my other neighbor's guns and again no one helped him and again they came for him several days later. Yesterday they came to my home for my guns but I left before they came because I was the last one in the neighborhood.

An Englishman,Frenchman and a Russian were asked their explanation of happiness. The Englishman stated returning home from a hard day at the office having a superb dinner and afterwards having your slippers in front of the easy chair in front of the fireplace and a brandy. The Frenchman stated being on a business trip meeting a gorgeous female making love and parting with no regrets. The Russian stated being awoke at 3 in the morning by knocking on your door by the secret police. You open it and they say Ivan Ivonivich you are under arrest. With a smile on your face you say I'm sorry but Ivan lives next door!

Not bad, but out of date.

Substitute '21st century America' for 'Russia', and 'John Doe' for 'Ivan Ivonivich', and you'll be considered a prophet.

To you jagoffs championing SOS's work at the Keystone House: 9 out of 10 Westside homes are filled with at least 6 filthy kids living in less-than-ideal conditions. There wouldn't be copper the first on the street in 011 (or probably any other ghetto district for that matter) if we actually notified DCFS, SVU, etc. every time we set foot in one of these places, and you know that's a fact. The coppers on scene that night "did the right thing" only because they had to (read between the lines here, detective). The fact that it made national headlines is due only to what the previous poster stated...embellished paper writing and overzealous promotion of an everyday occurrence everywhere in this country. And since you're obviously a liberal f***ing goof, come on over to 011 and be a crusader for these poor, disadvantaged children. Maybe you can expose some of the "nasty truth" the ghetto shadows under it's decrepid belly. (Inject EXTREME sarcasm into last sentence). Until next time, remove your head from your ass, wake up and see the bigger picture. Or maybe take a leave of absence to become a social worker and start solving all the social ills that infect this great country; but PLEASE start on the Westside - we all know that those tax-paying, family-oriented, hard-working pillars of society need your help the most.

2:49 pm poster couldn't have hit the nail on the head with any more accuracy. He/she did, however, fail to mention that part of the reason the SOS guys "did the right thing" was to seize a two-fold opportunity: 1) - to cover up a botched HI, and 2) - to have a couple po's on scene get made merit detective after their "stellar" work, compassion...blah, blah, blah was force-fed to the media and everyone in the US who watches the news. Just another bullshit incident on this lousy job that was spun the way the bosses wanted. Quit hanging on SOS's nutsack, you fool. We all can see with clarity who the two-minute wonder is.
