“If The Police Had A Right To Be In Your House, They Would Be Kicking, Not Knocking” – Barry Cooper

Never open the door for the police. This is the message that former narcotics officer and current anti-police corruption crusader Barry Cooper is trying to get across to everyone.
We all have heard stories of the police kicking in the door of somewhere they had no right to be in, but if you open your door, the police can easily say they smell marijuana – even if there is no odor – and enter your house with probable cause.
“Just as you can screen who comes in and out of your house, the same goes for police officers,” Barry says, “Citizens are under no obligation to allow police entry into their homes.
“Receiving an anonymous tip or hearing a rumor about you is not enough evidence for police to obtain a search warrant for you house. Instead of taking the time to do a real investigation to determine if the rumor is fact or fiction, the police will perform a ‘Knock and Talk,’ also known as a ‘Tap and Rap,’ on your front door. Their intention is to trick you into opening the door so they can claim an odor of marijuana is coming from inside your house. Police will even lie and say they smell marijuana when they don’t. After detecting the supposed odor, the kops now have probable cause to enter your home and detain you while they get a search warrant.”
