Fear of toilet flushing trumps citizen rights yet again.

Supreme Court rules in favor of police barging in.

The court ruled 9-0 that if police had waited any longer than 20 seconds, a drug suspect could be flushing evidence down the toilet…
Justice David H. Souter, writing for the court, said that because police believed there were drugs in his apartment, officers had more reason to rush. “Police seeking a stolen piano may be able to spend more time to make sure they really need the battering ram,” Souter wrote.

9-0. Because of potential toilet flushing. So instead, we’ll probably get more of this.
