    I think it would be a major invasion of privacy. Prob wouldn't be a bad thing if people had nothing to hide they should be fine with it but there also are those few and far between cases of corrupt cops or someone if they didn't like someone could just have someone randomly raid a place and that could be mean. Young kids could be traumatized if their parents were innocent of everything and cops were showing up going thru their houses. I think that it would help with some crimes but at the same time would be huge invasion of privacy and I think it prob is best just having it as is with a warrant.

    Giving up our rights won't help society. Don't the cops have enough to do?

    This is already happening, I have heard about this from family members. There are other ways to catch crimmals. Sooner or later it will be you or me. Even though I haven't done anything, just randon pick. Not good!

    These questions were phrased poorly. It made it seem like police would raid ALL houses. But it is wrong if police do so without a search warrant.

    I think this is a really good idea and would help find criminals quicker and would def. help me sleep better at night and feel safe. I do agree it is a complete invasion of privacy..but honestly, I would still let them search my house if it'll help catch a criminal/criminal acts quicker. I think if you have nothing to hide then there's no reason to object.

    I can't believe that anyone would even ask this question. The police could enter anyone's house anytime. If someone didn't like someone else they could give the police a false tip. Sounds a lot like the witch hunts of former times. If something is found, do we burn them at the stake?

    Well, I had something kind of connected to that. My daughter and I were sleeping at 2 am in the morning. There is a loud bang on the door with police shouting I had better open the door or they will knock it down. I said I don't know what they want and I don't want to open the door. Then they threatened me and said okay we are knocking it down. So I opened the door, later finding out that if they had knocked it down I could have sued. Well, they barged into my apartment, looked through all my things, barged into my daughters room, turned her light on, woke her up of course and went through all her things. I kept telling them whoever they were looking for it wasn't me. Then they finally figured that out, radioed their office and found out it was the people living in the apartment right across from me they were looking for. They never apologized to me and my daughter at all. I filed a report on them so that it would not happen to anyone else. In response to this survey, a random raid is a complete invasion of privacy and should never be allowed.

    We can't seriously be at a point in our society where anyone actually thinks this would be okay, right?

    If our society ever came to something like that, things are looking REALLY bad. It's not too pretty out there now, but that would just be a big red flag that the s*it is about to hit the fan.
