5. probable cause,

has to be based on evidence, and evidence of a crime that has been committed.

For probable cause to exist, a police officer must have sufficient knowledge of facts to warrant a belief that a suspect is committing a crime. The belief must be based on factual evidence, not just on suspicion. The test which the court employs to determine probable cause is whether an objective person of reasonable intelligence would believe that the circumstances indicate that the person arrested or detained has committed a crime.

In CO and MA, there is no standard to file for a warrant, nor no evidence required. It is legalized SWATing, nothing more.

The difference isn't where one gets a degree, the difference is that one actually does research and bases opinion on facts and logic.
