These illustrate why the 4th Amendment & guarantees of due process were put in the Constitution, & why they must not be ignored on any pretext.
If thuggery of this kind like the old Soviet Union & worse is just okiedokie & peachy, it's time to start asking why we even bother HAVING a United States of America at all.
It will start with voters pointedly asking candidates what they intend to do about these things, & maybe gadflies like Ron Paul or 3rd partiers bringing them up. Kelo, Waco, Filegate, got swept under the rug & indications are Operation Fast & Furious will too. We need "extreme" candidates who will stand up & champion basic rights & dignity, not more career pols bringing home pork while these things happen to 'the other guy'.
