uhhh pre patriot act no one was free from "unwarranted arrest", cops or any state or federal agents for that matter NEVER needed a warrant to arrest someone. Thats laughable. Does mayfield even know what a warrant is ? Anyone can get arrested and held for 48 hours cause the cop says you fit a discrition of some wanted individual.
Also debatable is the ability of local cops to search your car with out probable cause, i know they are SUPPOSED to get a warrant but they do not always. Never happened to me but to friends and relatives. I dont like the idea of any AMERICANS home getting searched with out a warrant. A warrant i dont think is that hard to get, usually..... since a cop can get one over the phone and delay your evening if he feels like being a dick, how much harder can it be for the feds?
Was this Mayfield a american sova i didnt see that in the story.
