View Full Version : Does manhunt = PC?

I was watching the news the other night about the search for that guy that escaped from jail in Stockton. It was actually very near to where I live and I could see the choppers and all. Apparently they were doing door to door searches in the neighborhood where they thought he was. Hence my question. If LEO’s show up at your door and want to search your property/house as part of a man hunt, can you refuse? Do they have PC in a case like that?

No, that would not be sufficient for PC. Now if they watched the escapee run into your house, or if they had reports as such, that would give them PC.

It depends. If you're in Oakland or SF, you can tell them (cops) that you are in a sanctuary city so you refuse to cooperate with them..........:rolleyes:

The probable cause has to hold up in court and unless they have a warrant/consent/hot pursuit then they would be in the wrong.
