University of Kentucky Student Records a Heated Confrontation with the Police In His Dorm Room

by 7 years ago

Over on Reddit, there's lots of interesting and important discussion on whether or not students in dorm rooms have Fourth Amendment protection to deny search without a warrant. Yes, technically they're University-property. However, in most states dorms are usually considered an individual's residence, just like a rented apartment. It's about inhabitancy, not necessarily ownership. Here's a good read on the subject.

What do you think? A patriotic upholder of sacred Fourth Amendment rights against unreasonable search and seizure? Or a gigantic jackass who knows his video is going to go instantly viral the second he posts it to YouTube? Or a whole lot of both? You decide.
