    My understanding is the bail agent MAY - repeat MAY - have a legal leg to stand on. But the cops, not so much. Lady gonna have a new house soon.

    Guy 1 - "How did you get in, just open the door?"

    Guy 2 - "Yep"

    Guy 1 - "Ok, we're good."

    They would have had to taze me.

    Do they actually have to possess the warrant, or just have one signed?

    "I don't need a warrant," the bondsman said as he appeared to enter on his own into the home from a back door on the youtube video.

    There were also sheriff's deputies at the front door. Deputies and bail bond enforcement officials have different laws but a local bail bondsman not affiliate with this case said what happened in this case was against the law.

    "If you see the person go in, you can go in," Glenn Pierce, the owner of Gotta Go Bail Bonds said. "But you just can't go in randomly."

    anyone know the law?

    For what its worth, I did not hear them announce after the knock until the KCSO made contact at the window.

    I also would not have opened the door for them.

    They better have a warrant in their hand if they want to come in my house. That is my law.

    The bounty hunter is the one that says he did not need a warrant....he is correct....the accused gave him that power to check his residence when he signed the contract to be bonded out of jail

    I have no idea about that bail agent, but I was always under the assumption they had to have a warrant to search UNLESS they could SEE what they were looking for when the door was open.

    They have to be able to show the people their searching.

    So someone else can give them permission to enter my house? I don't think so.

    Hang out with trash, get treated like trash. I don't feel bad for her. Too bad they forgot the duct tape for that loud obnoxious mouth of hers.

    Where's Allen?

    He can if he lists it as his legal residence...also the co-signer stipulates to the same things.

    A bench warrant and an arrest warrant are two entirely separate things. As a LEO just because I had knowledge of an arrest warrant does not give me the right to trespass and break in to where I THINK the person may be hiding. Bail agents shouldn't be breaking into homes hoping that their mark is there also. That a good way to get shot around here. A badge is not identification, it's a symbol. I would sue the crap out of those officers. Stuff like this give cops a bad name. :steamed:

    I was going to say that too. You have to watch the circles you fly in.

    If they listed it as a place of residency, yes, I suppose so.

    If the man they were looking for was legally residing in the home in the near past they don't need a search warrant. If the home was not the man's residence those bail enforcement agents and sheriff's deputies broke several laws.

    Exactly.
