police-invasion of privacy
Well 1/31/10 at 1:45pm, I had a police officer just walk into my house without any permission or warrant. She rang the doorbell 2 times in a row and before I could get to the door, she walks right in!!!!!! And stated that she was responding to an assault call made at 2:30am (almost 12 hours ago) at someone else’s house on my street (she did disclose the address and it was not my house).So she acted like she was at the wrong house. In which I noticed there were 3 cop cars already sitting in front of that neighbors house where she said she was looking for, and the police have GPS don’t they? And I didn’t even ask why it took the 12 hours to respond to an assault call nor did I really ask anything because I was in shock. She was also very rude about it and told me I need to change the smell in my house???? I had citrus oil burners on and why is that her business anyways (I explained)? And she left without leaving her name or anything! I can't imagine what would have happened if no one was home because we don't always lock our front door, and I have a pit-bull who could have attacked her. Well I feel this is a complete invasion of privacy and I have never felt so violated before. WHAT IS THE FOURTH AMENDMENT?? I will be contacting ACLU tomorrow.
