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