Only good news is "maybe" there won't be any rioting in the streets of Dallas tonight.
What, no upper middle class revolt? No throwing Cabernet bottles at the passing Escalades and BMW's?? No looting at Golfsmith or Lombardo apparel?? :lol:
Response of the week hahahahaha

The bottom line is that as a LEO she did have the right to be there, technically.
Whoa there cowboy. Why?

The police were not called to that apartment. She was not investigating a crime. She was not in pursuit of anyone. I'm curious about your assertion that she technically had a right to be in someone elses home.
It wasn't a home, it was an apartment. There is a significant difference between the occupant and the owner. The owner of the property probably didn't have a problem with a LEO resident keeping an eye on things to make sure they are safe. In Texas, tenants do not have an absolute 4th amendment privacy right because it's not their home. The apartment owner can enter the apartment or have a PROXY enter the apartment such as a repairman or a security guard.
You must be tired after making such a huge leap. That you believe that an off duty police officer has a right to be in someone else's apartment is Grand Canyon kind of leaping. Not even Evel Kneivel was able to do that.
Well that is one of the defense arguments. That the lease specified the apartment is NOT the property of the tenant and they do not have reasonable expectation of privacy from leasing agency personnel, their contractors (like LEOs), or First Responders, including Fire, Police, and EMTs, including OFF DUTY.
Wrong.
She was not acting under the authority of her badge. Her occupation is pretty irrelevant actually. The only reason it is mentioned is due to the ongoing tension between police and the public. If she was an accountant that just got off a 14 hour shift this probably wouldn’t be 1/10th of the news spectacle that this is, yet would be the exact same case. No one has authority to enter a residence without permission or warrant. Where are you coming up with this stuff?
