I haven't watched the video, but I'd like to clarify something.
The police or certain government inspectors do not need a warrant if there is reasonable grounds to assume a crime has recently occured or is occuring that involves the subject individual. Yes, the police can't just come onto your property and start poking around, but if there is reasonable grounds to do so they have all the authority to do so.
Think of it this way: If you commit a crime two weeks ago and the police think you might have some stolen property in your house, they'll go to a judge and get a warrant. If the cops are litteraly chasing you down and you run home to hide out in your basement, they have every right to knock down your door and make an arrest.

I truly hope that if this incident is recent, that it doesn't go unnoticed and unpunished. If there's one thing that pisses me off the most, it's when people's rights are trampled on - especially in this country. Uneducated, proud a**holes who care more about saving face than knowing what's true and right. SOMEONE PLEASE SEND THIS VIDEO TO THE NEWS!!! Lots of major news stations dedicate portions of their porgramming to internet videos, especially outrageous videos such as this one. I think I'd love nothing more than to see those two smug idiots have their dumb faces plastered all over national TV. I know you'll never read this but - step on a landmine, both of you.

These people won't have a single excuse in court. Even the crappiest attorney in the world could win this case with ease. Both the lady and the deputy will be fired, for sure. This was no loophole. He is quoting the constitution and saying something along the lines of "You cannot trespass onto this property, because you don't have a warrant"
To get a legal warrant to enter someone's private property against their wishes, you must have something to inspect with probable evidence. Their excuse was someone called. Can you convict someone as a murderer just because one witness says something without any evidence to back up his claim? No? Didn't think so. A witness without proof is as useful as saying "I think he did it, but it's just a hunch." This man has won the case already by making this video and quoting the constution, and continually refusing permission to enter.

Now THIS is something to get pissed about instead of showing a dumb receipt. The fact that TWO public officials have zero respect/knowledge of the law is an embarrassment. Good thing this gentleman recorded everything. I hope both officials are let go and this guy gets some type of settlement from the state of Indiana. No offense towards the people of Indiana but I'm kind of surprised the home owner didn't start shooting at them

Loophole!?!?!?!?! Are you kidding me?! He has a RIGHT to refuse access to his property. Without a warrant or probable cause, police and anyone else for that matter cannot just barge in. Thats one of the things this country was based on. End of story. I would have been furious.

I watched the full 9 minutes.
And nothing happened.
It was just a fat cop and an annoying government worker being told to leave for 9 minutes by a dude who reads bills/ammendments/constitutions just to find loopholes, and anything that will benefit him if he gets into court.

He's right, you know. They need a warrant.
The deputy was hilarious. "Whhhhyyyyy?" So unprofessional.
