Dog sniff at the front door of a house... constitutes a search for purposes of the 4th Amendment
Authored by: Anonymous on Wednesday, March 27 2013 @ 12:36 AM EDT
Hmm. What if they do not bring the dog to the porch? Simply walk him in front of
the house on public property? Is that allowed?

This case has me sort of ambivalent. OTOH I don't want cops walking around with
dogs sniffing everywhere, OTOH how is this different from seeing someone murder
someone through the windows?

I know you can argue that there is ther plain sight clause, but what about
"plain scent"?

cameras in surveillance, without a warrant, (Kyllo v. US., 2001), even without
trespass.

The ruling makes sense. Dogs are a form of remote sensing, like IR cameras.

Get a warrant! If you can't get a warrant, get a case!

No false positives
Authored by: cxd on Wednesday, March 27 2013 @ 04:16 PM EDT
In a certified dog. There are no false positives. If the
dog has doubt he will not alert because he is only rewarded
if he is right. A certified dog learns to be right every
time because that is how we train them. If he is not sure he
will not alert because he will not want to disappoint his
master. Read the post below with links.
