SEARCH AND SEIZURE

Even though police create an exigency by knocking on a door, the exigent circumstances rule still allows a warrantless search so long as the police's conduct is reasonable. See "Justices rule in warrantless search case." U.S. Supreme Court. Kentucky v. King, No. 09-1272. May 16, 2011. Lawyers USA No. 993-2905.
