Supreme Court Rejects Old Rule, Miss Manners

In what could be a fatal blow to etiquette fans throughout the nation, the Supreme Court pretty much did away with the 4th Amendment's knock-and-announce requirement.

BarBri students everywhere commented, "so what - they can't test on it this year."

On the other hand, parents now have a fitting Constitutionally validated comeback line in privacy arguments at home. Joining "it's a free country" in the list of legal arguments hurled during familial arguments, American parents gratefully thanked the Supreme Court today for providing them with a response to "don't you knock!"
