Submission + - Supreme Court Approves Warrantless Home Searches (nytimes.com) 1

An anonymous reader writes: The New York Times reports that the Supreme Court has ruled, by a vote of 8 to 1, that police may enter a home and collect evidence even without a warrant, if after knocking on the door and announcing themselves they "hear evidence being destroyed." Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg , who cast the lone dissenting vote, mused: "How 'secure' do our homes remain if police, armed with no warrant, can pound on doors at will and, on hearing sounds indicative of things moving, forcibly enter and search for evidence of unlawful activity?"
