Detroit police executing a search warrant for narcotics and weapons entered petitioner Hudson’s home in violation of the Fourth Amendment ’s “knock-and-announce” rule. The trial court granted Hudson’s motion to suppress the evidence seized. The appellate court rfeversed and allowed the evidence to be used agaisnst Hudson.

Yesterday, the Supreme Court ruled that the evidence obtained can be used.

Abusive government agencies and the law enforecment community will benefit greatly from this ruling as we move closer to the advancing police state. Once again, citizen rights are deminished.
