Justin.TV Police Raid and Probable Cause?

This Justin.TV Police Raid is a bit interesting.

Note that the prank phone call was the probable cause the police needed to enter his apartment.

Civil libertarians playing at home will note that the police either need probable cause or a search warrant to enter private property.

A bit disturbing that a random person no the Internet who knew your phone number could have police show up at your house anytime they want.


  1. Kevin,

    They believed people were in danger (eg, stabbed). That’s all the cause they need, afaik.
