Although I am uncomfortable with this, in some neighborhoods an open door is an indication of something wrong, and should be investigated.

If I’m following the logic of some here today, they’d be within their rights to check the Call History on the phone in your bedroom as well.

That’ll work great right up to the time a cop gets shot.

I'd shotgun his trespassing, Constitution violating ass, as I would any other sneak thief...

Do you feel the butchery getting closer?

Does this mean if a homeowner comes home to find you in their bedroom, can you just say the door was open and I decided to investigate why—you know, just a neighborly thing to do.

Aren’t you a trespasser? Why aren’t the police? They’re not “special”, despite their thinking they are.

This may fly in urban/sub-urban/ex-urban situations, but in my neck of the woods, somebody’d end up dead.

Boulder police officials told The Camera officers can enter a home that is closed and even locked if they have a “reasonable suspicion that something was amiss… such as if the officer observes mail piled up by a door

Well, I'm creeped out, even 40 years ago the idea that when I left for a 3 day weekend that the cops might enter my locked house just to poke around, would have freaked me out.

Interestingly, it would have freaked out everyone 40 years ago, this would have been unimaginable then.

Maybe they’re still looking for JonBenet’s killer.

Boulder police Sgt. Michael Everett tells the Boulder Daily Camera entering unsecured residences is a standard procedure for most law enforcement agencies, including Boulder police.

That's how the Night Stalker operated as well.

Several years ago a home owner was shot and killed by a deputy that entered a home with an opened door. It was at night. The deputy entered the home and was confronted by the owner, armed with a fireplace poker. The deputy stated that he attempted to identify himself, before shooting the home owner. The deputy was cleared of wrongdoing.

I was burglarized about 30 years ago in San Francisco. I called the police and watched one cop climb the apt. building's fire escape, checking every window as he went. When he found one that wasn't locked, he opened it, announced it was the police and entered.

If a burglar with a gun enters your house and shouts, "POLICE," I guess you're not supposed to shoot.

They know if they get sued in Federal Court they will get their heads handed to them, but figure most people cannot afford to sue.

They do have the imperative to enter when something really amiss but, just walking in because the door is unlocked?

Mistakes are bound to happen and bad things too.

What if I’m on the toilet and can’t get to the door, which you discovered unlocked?

I frequently walk out of the house leaving it unlocked and this was ever so try when I lived in Oklahoma.

Not a good policy to enter a home because you feel you can, as a so called friend.

No, this is just you getting your jollies by violating a boundary of another person.

Kinduh like alcoholics but with a gun, badge and shielded by the government.

Entering a home without permission and without
a warrant is a felony....it’s called “breaking
and entering” and the possession of a piece of
metal called a badge in no way changes the fact
that the action is a crime.

But until we start hanging the judges and DA’s
who refuse to hold badgemonkeys to the law nothing
is going to improve.....and people WILL die.

Well now, I can see why the Colorado State Government and LEO’s want to impose strict gun control there. It’s a self-protection thing for them.

Of course on the other side, it’s a outward display of contempt for the people who live there and pay taxes.

That's called "breaking and entering", at least when the proletariat do it. Perhaps different rules apply to the praetorian guard.

I was commenting on this story when it came on that site Monday morning.
I can’t believe that there are some there who see no problem with this.

Boulder resident, sitting on the pot, hears the front door open.
Resident grabs pistol.
Intruder (police) sees resident with pistol.
*BOOM*

Someone’s going to end up getting shot eventually.

A few booby-trapped houses will end this unconstitutional practice quickly.
