I would think that most people would give an astounding YES!!! Yes sir, police need a warrant before they come inside MY home and arrest me, or nose around through my stuff looking for things,. Hey folks, I'm with ya...

Do you realize that it isn't that simple? Did you know that police can in fact come inside your home and arrest you "without" a warrant? They can even "enter" your home without a warrant. Did you know that? Did your local policeman drop off some literature advising you of their new "court" given authority over you? Did they?

Naturally some of these governmental intrusions into your home may be justified for like a fire, hot pursuit, stop someone from killing someone, you know, basically those "emergency" type circumstances. Actually, they call those types of circumstances "exigent".

However, the threshold of your very door may not be as safe as you would think. Remember folks, everyday case law is being established. And just how do we find out that a supreme court, or even a lower court with enough jurisdiction has just taken away or severely abridged your right to...ahh, pick one. You get the message, I hope.

So unless you prescribe to a Law Journal of some sort, then most of us simply are too busy to worry about law because we are good law abiding citizens. Those people Adolph Hitler rounded up was "good law abiding" citizens too, so they say, but look what happened to them. Perhaps had they known what was coming they could have prepared for it. Ya think?

Multiple personality disorder (MPD) is a psychiatric disorder characterized by having at least one "alter" personality that controls behavior. The "alters" are said to occur spontaneously and involuntarily, and function more or less independently of each other. The unity of consciousness, by which we identify our selves, is said to be absent in MPD. Another symptom of MPD is significant amnesia which can't be explained by ordinary forgetfulness. In 1994, the American Psychiatric Association's DSM-IV replaced the designation of MPD with DID: dissociative identity disorder. The label may have changed, but the list of symptoms remained essentially the same.

Memory and other aspects of consciousness are said to be divided up among "alters" in the MPD. The number of "alters" identified by various therapists ranges from several to tens to hundreds. There are even some reports of several thousand identities dwelling in one person. There does not seem to be any consensus among therapists as to what an "alter" is. Yet, there is general agreement that the cause of MPD is repressed memories of childhood sexual abuse. The evidence for this claim has been challenged, however, and there are very few reported cases of MPD afflicting children.

Psychologist Nicholas P. Spanos argues that repressed memories of childhood abuse and multiple personality disorder are "rule-governed social constructions established, legitimated, and maintained through social interaction." In short, Spanos argues that most cases of MPD have been created by therapists with the cooperation of their patients and the rest of society. The experts have created both the disease and the cure. This does not mean that MPD does not exist, but that its origin and development are often, if not most often, explicable without the model of separate but permeable ego-states or "alters" arising out of the ashes of a destroyed "original self."

Police need a warrant to arrest you in your home generally unless its an emergency

see payton v. new york.

Also, even if your law abiding all it takes is a few corrupt cops.
