BATF: No Unlawful Entry, Only Unlawful Locked Doors?
Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (don't forget Explosives) knocks at
your door, you had better get a move-on. Don't shilly-shally. Don't ask who's
there. Above all, don't ask if they have a warrant. Not if you know what's good
A woman in Colorado ignored these rules. She did not open the door fast enough. When she finally did, the BATF SWAT team barged in, machine guns drawn.
They had a perfect right to be there. They were looking for a woman who had moved out a year earlier. The present resident had informed the police of this several times.
You can’t fool the BATF with that kind of story. They are on top of things.
As for this warrant business, that went out years ago. The BATF doesn’t need a warrant. Think of the scene in the Treasure of Sierra Madre. “We don’t have to show you no stinking warrant.”
