When is your home your castle? Two far different events are giving us pause to consider the question.
The first, is the situation down in Lakeville, where cops found an open garage, an open door, and people on the ground when they walked in (Were they sleeping? Or had something tragic happened here?). The cops walked upstairs and woke up Troy Molde. He is now petitioning the city for a public hearing on Lakeville Police Department policies on when officers should enter a home without a search warrant, The Pioneer Press reported today.
“The police don’t have a clue what our rights are,” Mollde told the newspaper. “I’m working hard to try to protect people’s rights. That is my core issue with all of his.”
Meanwhile, in Winona, a 53-year old man has been cited after he ran back into his burning home to retrieve a computer. The man was upset about the fire and had been ordered several times to stand back. He then bolted into the burning home and retrieved the computer, the Associated Press reported.
