Cops steal $270K while executing search warrant,but is stealing while executing SW a 4A violation?

DefamatoryCowHat Retweeted

CA9 panel: when cops stole $270K while executing search warrant, it wasn't clear that stealing property while executing warrant violates 4th Amendment, so cops are immune.

1. one would think that theft would make it not a "reasonable" search and seizure.

alternatively, if they want to take the view that the seizure was reasonable at the *time* the items were removed in the course of executive the search warrant, then a theft took place *after* the execution of the search warrant when the police lied about how much cash was taken.

in any event, it's obviously a recipe for terrible government for the police to effectively have a free pass for thieving in the process of executing a search warrant.

2. Very true. Thank you.

I can't believe I am hearing so much justification of violations of the fourth amendment to the US Constitution.
