    Nothing to hide?

    I laugh when people say they dont care about their loss of rights to privacy because "they have nothing to hide". She didnt have anything to hide...

    I fail to see what this has to do with rights to privacy. They had a warrent didn't they?

    Yes but I suppose I still had THIS on my mind:

    I believe New Orleans has one of the most corrupt police departments in the country too.

    What should the cops do while they're scanning for someone with an infrared camera rigged on their helicopter spotted a home with a pot farm?

    Simply ignore it cuz it's invasion of privacy?

    My step dad hates the state of LA. He says the entire state is corrupted and police will intentionally follow you waiting for you to make an illegal move just so they can pull you over. Or they would follow Mexican illegals knowing that the illegals kept money on them since they cannot go to a bank. That way they can confiscate the money and the illegals can't do nothing. Not so sure if this is true at all though.

    The fact that they are illegals does not give the police the right to pocket their hard earned money.

    You cannot use infrared cameras to try to detect marijuana growers without a warrant.

    Yeah, the police system is pretty corrupt down here, moreso in New Orleans than the rest of the state. As far as confiscating money from illegals, thats something new to me.

    I think that he was asking what would happen if police were using infrared cameras to conduct an unrelated mansearch and happend to notice the pot farm.

    That's been used way to many times.

    Then it is theoretically illegal obtained evidence, and they could not use it in a court of law.

    Not necessarily. If a cop is chasing a man on foot, and the man breaks into an apartment, the cop may follow him in. If upon entrance, the cop discovers 8 kilos of coke, it is legally admissible evidence. Seems like it MIGHT be translatable to the theoretic situation given.

    Maybe the police should be able to order strip-searches at the drop of a hat, afterall, we're all human and no one is that different from anybody else. What've you got to hide? :lol:

    My statement was supposed to contradict the whole "we had the thermal things and just happened to notice, so we figured lets just pay em a visit"

    Cops got too much power as it is.

    Both of those cases are VERY disturbing.

    How is this an invasion of privacy? Perhaps due to the fourth amendment protection against unlawful searches and seizures? Sure it was justified by a court, but many things that are found to be justified by a court are later said to be not-so-good. Separate but Equal anyone?

    Since you're talking about warrants and privacy, I have a question.

    There were a bunch of people having a party at my friends house last weekend. He has a lot of land and everyone was way back in his yard. You can't even see any street from there, and there is are woods surrounding to that keep it even more hidden. They were having a bonfire and there was also a keg there. I assume that just about everyone there was underage. During the party the police pull up next to everyone having driven about half a mile back onto his property. They took down everyones name and school and made everyone leave, and I think the kid who lived at the house (who is under 21) was arrested.

    So my question is, was there anything wrong with what the police did there, or could he have told them to leave and get a warrant? Just curious, thanks.

    Get the kid to challenge the arrest.

    I don't really know what he's doing about it, I haven't talked to him. I did hear from other people that he just had to wait there for the weekend for his parents to bail him out since they were out of town at the time.
