    ‘Sneak & peek’ warrants allow police to secretly enter homes without notice



    policestateusa.com / Site Staff / June 27, 2014

    A little-known police tactic allows cops to covertly enter private residences, perform searches, seize property, and then leave quietly without notifying the homeowner. These searches, affectionately known as “sneak and peek” warrants, have been performed at a rapidly rising rate since 9/11.
    Covert Tactics

    Sneak and Peek warrants in actuality a more extreme version of the over-used “no-knock” raids that we cover so often. After seeking out a judge’s authorization, police are allowed to secretly break into private property without first announcing themselves or presenting the subject of the search with a signed warrant. Using this variety of warrant, officers intentionally wait until the subject is not present. The operations are performed covertly, and with the intention of masking the fact that any police activity took place.

    The entire premise encourages government agents to adopt the tactics of criminals in order to gain access to property: breaking and entering, sneaking around, stealing, and risking a surprise confrontation with an unsuspecting civilian.

As they lie there and with their last gasping breaths say that they are cops and it's confirmed as you rifle through their pockets to determine who and what they are - Under "Castle Doctrine" you should be completely and utterly absolved of all culpability correct?

    I have trail cams around my place but no motion activated or continuous yet as not enough bandwidth to store data stream where I live. I have satellite and a continuous feed would exceed my bandwidth alottment per month. I looked into Dropcam and Logitech cameras but am waiting for the SimpliSafe cameras if they ever come out for sale (supposedly end of this year). Now I do have Logitech cameras at my other cabin but have a DSL connection there. I do have motion detectors and trip sensors at both cabins however.

    Mine are always on but set for pixel change recording. So I do not get a notification or Email unless there is a change in the picture. My home alarm also is Battery backup and Cell enabled so no cutting a phone line or dropping power.

    When they kicked in my door they didn't have a warrant. And when a patrol car showed up with one 20 minutes later, it was for a different house.

    All this education modern policemen are supposed to have, too bad it doesn't include basic literacy, let alone esoterics like "dude, do we need a warrant to kick someone's door in?"

    Had I been able to force it to court, it would have looked very bad for them. I'm so squeaky-clean I should have a halo.
