Maryland. I have a constitutional question. My girlfriend made a 911 medical call, and the police came first responding to the call, and she answered the door and they came in.
She had overdosed on medication for Hep C, and became paranoid when she saw the police, because she is black and she's had some bad racial experiences with police in the past.
My question is: normally police need a search warrant to enter a dwelling, but they have gotten in the habit of entering homes on the coattails of medical personnel.
My girlfriend made a medical 911 call, and not a police 911 call. Where did my girlfriend waive her right to have police enter with a search warrant only? She is uncomfortable with the police because she has had racist experiences with them in the past (and many blacks have in America).
I would like to get the law changed so that a medical 911 cannot be tailed/followed by the police without probable cause.
And police will not have probable cause in and of itself, unless the medical personnel were to report probable cause to them; then they could come, but it better be probable cause.
Will anyone join me in changing this subservice practice of circumventing the probable cause and warrant laws? Please e-mail me at email@example.com. Love ya!
