shroom: AverageAmericanGuy: Mad_Radhu: AverageAmericanGuy: Alito also said that the court's ruling stretches expectations of privacy too far.

"A reasonable person understands that odors emanating from a house may be detected from locations that are open to the public, and a reasonable person will not count on the strength of those odors remaining within the range that, while detectable by a dog, cannot be smelled by a human."

Go fark yourself, Alito.

And libs, this is the kind of judge that is installed by a Democrat President. These guys hold this seat for life.

Obama and his damn time machine again, traveling back to 2006 to nominate Alito.

I never said Obama nominated Alito. Nor did I say that a Democrat did.

Stop putting words in my mouth.

Then what the hell does...

And libs, this is the kind of judge that is installed by a Democrat President.

...mean?  Am I taking you out of context by quoting you verbatim?


He didn't say that a democrat installed him, just that IF the democrats had the opportunity to pick the justice, they would have. So vote republican.

Silly Jesus: The dog is the partner of the K-9 officer.



And in most cases, the former is likely brighter (and certainly more honorable) than the latter.

Silly Jesus: I'm torn.  I'm for drug legalization, so it's good in that sense, but again it's pretty asinine in the sense that an officer (dog) who is legally allowed to be there is essentially being told that he can't use his senses in that location.  It would be tantamount to saying that police officers need to wear a blind fold if they go knock on someones door for an otherwise legal reason because they might see a pot plant sitting on the window sill.


If the dog is an officer, and not just a tool or piece of equipment of law enforcement, then the dog can come testify at the trial under oath.  "Did you smell weed?  One bark for yes, two for no..." "bark bark"  "Double yes!!!"

Because you're a willfully ignorant piece of troll-sh*t who paints with a broader brush than most?

Way to raise the level of conversation with such an ugly ad hominem.


I was just answering your question

/and I think anything above 'durr! Hurr, LIBS LIBS! DURRRRP..." is raising the level of this 'conversation' in your case.

elvindeath: Newsflash, folks ... both Scalia and Thomas are generally very critical of the government attempting to expand it's powers, especially when it comes to property rights and infringing on individual freedoms.  The alignment of the Justices is not surprising at all.  All the same hacks expressing shock at "conservative" justices supporting the rights of the individual ought to be in total outrage at the "liberal" administration's position that they can drone strike an American citizen without warrant, search or trial.


Yep. this is what I said. He believes the government should not interfere with the property you own, like your land, wife or slaves.

If dogs could sniff out tumors with the same sensitivity as they sniff out drugs, you'd have a dog in every doctors office in the nation.


If dogs could sniff out tumors with the same sensitivity as they sniff out drugs, doctors would be convicted of quackery.

How is that inconsistent with the opinion?

Seems to me, a big private property conservative who feels government can't interfere with your private property, like your land, wouldn't be too keen on giving the government the power to remotely sense what is going on inside your home.

You know, like how he wrote the opinion in Kyllo that ruled that using an infrared scanner on a house without a warrant was unconstitutional.

More stupid from Alito
"According to the court, however, the police officer in this case, Detective Bartelt, committed a trespass because he was accompanied during his otherwise lawful visit to the front door of the respondent's house by his dog, Franky. Where is the authority evidencing such a rule?"

Caught sayof dog instain to porch?

vernonFL: It's not trespassing when a mail carrier comes on a porch for a brief period, Alito said. And that includes "police officers who wish to gather evidence against an occupant," Alito said

Uh, what??? I'm not a lawyer, but that is a really stupid argument.


Which is why you are either too smart or too honest to make it as a conservative judge.
