Supreme Court: “Police Don’t Need No Steenkeeng Search Warrant”

And the trend continues. As corporations gain more and more “rights,” people’s individual rights are disappearing one by one. The Corporate Arm of the Republican Party (formerly known as the Supreme Court) has ruled that the police only need a search warrant if it’s raining, you’re wearing a flannel shirt and a green car just drove by.

In Lexington, Kentucky, police arrested a man after barging into his home without a search warrant. They claimed they didn’t need a search warrant because they smelled marijuana. And the Supreme Court has ruled in their favor, 8 to 1. Ruth Bader Ginsburg was the only dissenter.

Maybe the only solution is for every individual American to incorporate. Become a one-person corporation, put “Inc.” or “LLC” after your name, and Presto: Instant Freedom!

For conservatives, there really does seem to be an inverse ratio when it comes to how much “Freedom” they want for corporations versus individuals.

Take freedom-loving Arizona for example. State Senator Russell Pearce (R—Inbred) has plans for protesters in Arizona. He wants to have them locked up in a tent city in the middle of the desert.

Russell Pearce absolutely worships his fellow neckdrooler, Sheriff Joe Arpaio, and wants to be just like him. At a Phoenix Chamber of Commerce meeting, Pearce was asked how he would respond to protesters who disagree with Arizona’s conservative agenda. His response:

“I’ve spoken with the sheriff, and he has some nice buses that hold a lot of people. We’ve also got some tents with a view.”

The executive director of the Arizona AFL-CIO said:

“I find it deeply chilling that an elected official finds it funny to discuss jailing a group of people expressing their First Amendment rights. Suggesting a police crackdown before a rally has even occurred is just more of the same intimidation, threats and innuendo we’ve come to expect from Senator Pearce and his crony, Sheriff Joe Arpaio.”

Once Again, So much for the Hands off policies that Conservative Courts are supposed to be giving us, at least until all the Warren decisions are totally erased.

Before I sat down to read this post, I just got up from the TV where PBS was showing a documentary on the Freedom Riders, you can't help but to see the parallels between Arizona now and Mississippi then.

Pearce and Arpaio are both Nazis. Not hyperbolic ones; the real-live, swastika sporting ones. Just check out their associations and you'll see.

Since we have a packed Supreme Court, it is not surprising that they ruled in favor of the gestapo. What really shocked me was the fact that the decision was almost UNANIMOUS. Only one dissenting vote.

Cops are government employees and the majority of them vote democrat due to their being Union.
It is really disingenuous to blame republicans for every woe in the country . As a matter of fact in NY our democrat Governor is making even bigger cuts to Public employee benefits and especially education. That's what happens when you actually have to be an adult and do something about the budget instead of the usual hyperbole that has become so popular on the left.
And the organizations who are based in NY,MSNBC and the NY Times are mum.
What a differnce a "D" makes. Or should I say an "O"?

Ruth Bader Ginsburg was the only dissenter.

What happened to Keagan and Sotomeyer? Did they excuse themselves from yet another case due their inability to interpret the law?

Erik: It's only "hands off" for large corporations. For individuals, especially the un-wealthy, it's "Book him Dano!"

JR: Damn right; exact same mentality.

jadedj: That part was scary. I don't know what happened to those alleged "liberal" justices.

Randal: Everybody should have one.
