Should I open the door if the police knock?

Only if they have a warrant.


If they don’t have a warrant and force their way in, then let a judge sort it out.


If they are in, just remain silent and comply with any command (sit still) .


Do not give them permission to search, even if the situation looks hopeless.


Remember that a lawful search is only admissible if:

a)    you give them permission,

b)   the police have a warrant,

c)    “exigent circumstances” exist.


To preserve the issue for a judge NEVER agree to a search.
