SUSPECT FACING A CHARGE OF FIRST-DEGREE MURDER OF A CHILD YOUNGER THAN 12. NO WARRANT NO PROBLEM. DO POLICE NEED A WARRANT TO SEIZE YOUR PROPERTY? OUR INVESTIGATOR SAYS A RECENT CASE SHOWS THEY DO NOT. YOU NEED A WARRANT FOR THE DAY AND TIME IT HAPPENED. YOU ARE NOT TAKING ALL OF OUR VIDEOS. THE SEIZURE WAS CAUGHT ON CELL PHONE VIDEO. I AM NOT LETTING HIM TAKE IT. DO YOU WANT TO GET ARRESTED, ANSWER ME YES OR NO. IT WAS EARLIER THIS MONTH AND IT WAS IN ADAMS COUNTY. ATTENDS SHOWDOWN BETWEEN BAR MANAGER LYNETTE SMITH AND SHERIFF TO TEST HIS — SHERIFF’S DETECTIVES. YOU’RE NOT ALLOWED TO COME BACK INTO THIS. THEY DID SEIZING THE RESTAURANT THE DVR RECORDERS WITHOUT A WARRANT. THIS HAPPEN INSIDE THE BAR WHEN PATRONS GOT INTO A ARGUMENT, THE EMPLOYEES OF THE BAR GOT INVOLVED AND IT SPILLED OUTSIDE AND GOT PHYSICAL. EVENTUALLY TURNING INTO A ASSAULT INVESTIGATION. A DAY AND A HALF AFTER THE INCIDENT ADAMS COUNTY INVESTIGATORS DESCENDED ON THE BAR DEMANDING ACCESS TO THE DVR’S SO THEY COULD SEE FOOTAGE OF THE ALTERCATION FROM SURVEILLANCE CAMERAS. BUT THE RESTAURANT OWNERS WAS A LAWYER ON THE EAST COAST AND SAID THE EMPLOYEES DO NOT HAVE IMMEDIATE ACCESS TO THE CODES NECESSARY TO ACCESS THE DVR’S. YOU ARE WILLING TO TURN THEM OVER OR THE MATERIAL AND THE CONTENTS. ABSOLUTELY IF I HAVE HAD THE CODE I WOULD HAVE GIVEN IT TO THE OFFICER AT THE TIME. HE TOLD INVESTIGATORS SOME UNCLE GET THE DVR CODES THE NEXT MORNING FROM HIS OFFICE. WE HAVE NO REASON NOT TO COOPERATE. WE WILL COOPERATE. LET’S GET TO THE TRUTH. INVESTIGATORS WOULD NOT WAIT THEY UNPLUGGED THE MACHINES AND HAULED THEM AWAY WITHOUT A WARRANT AND ON TAPE THE DETECTIVE EXPLAINED THE URGENCY. LIKE YOU DO NOT WAIT FOR THE WARRANT TOMORROW MORNING? OVERNIGHT ALL KINDS OF DATA COULD BE ERASED. IT IS WHAT IS CALLED EXIGENT CIRCUMSTANCES, IF POLICE BELIEVE THERE IS A THREAT EVIDENCE MIGHT BE DESTROYED THEY CAN SEIZE PROPERTY WITH NO WARRANT. THE ADAMS COUNTY SHERIFF DECLINED TO SAY MORE CITING A ONGOING CRIMINAL CASE. I DO NOT SEE THAT EMERGENCY SITUATION. BUT A DEFENSE ATTORNEY AND FORMER PROSECUTOR SAID THAT DEPUTIES COULD HAVE ATTAINED A WARRANT IN ONE HOUR. THERE IS NO REASON TO HAVE ONE DEPUTY PRESERVE THE AREA WHILE THEY GO TO THE ON-CALL JUDGE TO GET A WARRANT. THERE IS NO REASON NOT TO. YOU ARE TAKING IT ILLEGALLY, I HOPE YOU LIKE THAT YOU’RE GETTING SUED. THIS IS THE MOST EGREGIOUS ILLEGAL SEIZURE THAT I HAVE EVER SEEN IN THE BEAUTIFUL
