Watching the Watchers

The Supreme Court has made another controversial decision. This time it essentially allows police to enter houses without announcing themselves. I can see how the throwing out of evidence can be bad for catching obvious criminals, and in that sense the decision is a victory for common sense. On the other hand, given the propensity in this country of late to imprison first and fabricate charges later, I don't know if I'm comfortable having yet another civil right go down the drain.
