Let's say Karen Killjoy rats out the neighbors. If she is anonymous it is useless per case law unless you can verify the information independently. Even if she leaves her name and you take her statement what are you left with? Knock and talk? Consent to search? Thats it.
A search warrant on a misdemeanor? Especially one that has dubious constitutionality.
Any chief that is pushing this is an idiot. I would be making the city attorney write an opinion on constitutionality and preferably best practices memo. That way if there is a lawsuit you have a "go away, sue the city not me" letter. Not to mention it takes months for the city attorney to issue such opinions. The vaccine will be ready by then.
This guy will stay in the light as long as he just does what he does. He'll remain famous for his thorough dictation of CNN's scripted retoric. Chris will be outdone by Andy sooner or later, you'll see!
So is it a 'law' that he is talking about or an executive order? I am a Law Enforcement Officer and my Oath was to support and defend The Constitution and to faithfully discharge the duties of my office. Enforcing executive orders are not the duties of a law enforcement officer.
We march to the drumming
Jump when they tell us
They want to see jumping
Fook that, I want to
See some fist pumping
Take back what's yours
Cuomo killed people with his order and he knows it. The problem is the wrong people are rioting against the wrong things. Dragging Cuomo or many of these state governors thru the street would change things. It's just frowned upon by those who give the middle finger to law and order.
