The constitution and you
The Constitution doesn't protect you from police who violate it, sayeth the Supreme Court. You can always sue if police fail to follow the law when busting into your house to serve a warrant, according to Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia. That is, you can sue if you can find a lawyer, and have the filing fees, and have the time and energy to battle the lawyers for cops and cities who will fight you all the way to protect their pocketbooks.
