I mentioned that I did not obstruct the police officer, because it was my friend who did not allow the police to enter or even answer the door. And you did not even mention how I obstructed or gave any information on why I did not have the authority. Citizens have the authority to protect themselves from the government, hence the reason "rights" exist. If you cannot give any credible information or any helpful tips please do not respond. By the way, I am not ignorant of my rights, I am a law student and not someone that gets my information from a television show.

You did not have authority to refuse the police entry because you had no authority over that house. You should not be so impressed with your status as a law student. You are now in legal trouble. Shame on you for your disrespectful attitude. The fact that you are in law school does not mean anything except that if you do not beat this charge, you could have trouble getting your licence, even if you pass the bar. But you know everything because you are in law school so I'm sure you will be fine. Snippy young law student.

Asker, to resist/obstruct requires a physical act and regardless of whose residence it is. If the cops have no warrant, consent, or exigent circumstance, they have no entitlement to entry and you are perfectly within your right to speak up and question their authority.

Goldstein, you are alone in your belief that the asker is presumed guilty. He may not have standing to contest an unlawful search but that is not the issue. You mean you could not stop cops from illegally entering your (....'s) house if you're merely an invited guest? Don't get too impressed with your law degree or think you are entitled to answer rudely or ignorantly to this or any other asker as I have seen you do way too many times.

Wineberg, nowhere did I state that the asker was guilty, and you have no way of knowing what I believe. Wineberg, I am no more impressed with my law degree than I am with yours, but I am certainly less impressed with your judgmental comments here. Wineberg, if you have something to say to me personally, you have access to my phone number and email address. I welcome hearing from you. Wineberg, until just now I had a great deal of respect for your knowledge and professionalism. Wineberg, you know nothing about me. Look at your own rating on Avvo before you judge others.

My comments are not directed to you "personally." You impugn the integrity of profession when you offer incorrect advice and make belittling comments of those who visit this site. I answer questions or publish legal guides to assist others, not for the sake of earning points or improving my rating on Avvo.
