Filed in the ‘ruh roh’ drawer … the law of unintended consequences rears its head.
”In other words, if police are alerted by an Apple Watch of a possible injury, they do not need a warrant to enter a home under the “community caretaking” exception to the Fourth Amendment. This is the notion that law enforcement officers can enter a private space if they reasonably believe that someone needs emergency assistance. It’s similar to the “exigent circumstances” exception, which allows police to come in if they believe someone is in imminent danger or physical evidence is being destroyed.”
So you accidentally fall off the ladder as you are recovering your stash for a little ‘relaxation’ and as you hit the ground, the watch alert goes off, and voila the po-lice (sic) drop by and in the course of their visit, the conversation takes a turn ….
” ‘ello ‘ello ‘ello … what’s all this then …..”
