UK student does not respect your authority

This video of a University of Kentucky student arguing with campus police officers is making its way around the internet this morning.  I don’t know the background of the situation here but it’s pretty clear he doesn’t want them entering his dorm room.

Watch as the young man stands up to the police officers and refuses to let them in until they present a warrant.  I think more people would side with him, had he not been so disrespectful.  You have to give him credit for knowing the rules, though.

Warning: The language isn’t safe for the kiddos.

    So just as in life where the cream of the crop usually rise to the top of a profession, it is pretty well known the pecking order for criminal justice careers…

    1) FBI/Feds
    2) State Police
    3) County Sheriff’s Department
    4) Town Cops
    5) University Cops
    6) Rent a cops.

    These guys probably couldn’t even define warrant.

    I think it was very smart of him to make a video, I can’t watch it right now so I can’t say if his actions are smart or not. When dealing with the police in any capacity, if you can take video of it, do it. There are a lot of cases where the cops are right, but there are more than their fair share of them abusing power and so on that you’re only defense is to have video evidence.

    That brings back memories of cops at my door in Kirwan Tower. I never in my life have treated somebody with so much disrespect. At the very least, this kid will be removed from university housing, and very well may be expelled from the university altogether. Kid needs to be figure out real soon that his “rights” don’t always apply.
    And to the people who hate cops, I can say that I hate you. My brother is a cop and a damn good one. He cares about people and puts his life on the line everyday on patrol in Louisville’s West End.

    How he spoke to the police does not give the police the right to break the law. The police are the professionals here, and they didn’t act like it. The kid is a kid and acted like it. If campus police can’t deal with kids without losing their temper, then they should be dismissed. I hope these police get punished.

    The dichotomoy in the first 11 comments is interesting . . . i’d like to know how many of the pro-law enforcement comments were from law enforcement individuals or those with family members in the game. You cannot deny that some law enforcement officials are over-the-top control freaks who think a badge gives them the right to act however they see fit. This is a small majority within the community but you cannot deny they do not exist. The majority are indeed there to protect and serve and do a thankless job. I’d say the short fat cop who shoved his way in is in the minority . . . the second guy in looked pretty relaxed – as they BOTH should have been. I couldn’t hear the video at work but nothing that kid could have said warranted the “explosive” actions of the first cop . . . nothing. He isn’t there to be tougher or cooler or scarier than the students but to protect them and enforce the law . . . if he couldn’t enter the dorm room without invitation or a warrant, then go get one or be done. The kid may be a complete jerk . . . don’t know, doesn’t matter . . . he has rights.

    I’m so glad people like this kid still exist in this country. It was looking like everyone had just
    kowtowed to Mammon. Decent police officers are so hard to find, and the reason for that
    is, they have always served The Rich. They are “law enforcers” but very rarely
    “law abiders”. It cuts both ways of course, because criminals also abuse the law, but
    the men at this door are why people refer to police officers as “pigs”. Even if this
    kid gets kicked out of UK, he changed his corner of the world that night.
    God bless him, and keep him, and God bless every single person in this nation
    who knows their rights. Amen.

Sure there are some who have issues, but find me a profession that doesn’t have them. Everyday I read this site and read where many of you applaud the character of people you believe to be respectful (Joe B., MKG, Bill Kneightly etc.etc). And then this kid displays incredible disrespect to authority and some of you defend him.

    Looks to me, based on the housing regs posted on UK Website, like the Campus police did NOT have authority to enter the room, at least based on what is presented in the video…just saying.

    —————–

    Room Entry Policy

    Authorized university personnel may enter a student’s residence hall room without permission for the following reasons:

    To provide routine maintenance
    To provide routine inspections to ensure that residents are following health, fire, and safety regulations
    To respond to emergency situations; e.g., situations which threaten the health and/or safety of room occupants, and situations which require immediate maintenance to prevent property damage or immediate action to correct the health, fire and/or safety risk
    When there is reason to believe that a violation of university policy is taking place in the room and occupants in the room do not open the door when requested to do so.
    Authorization to enter a student’s room under this policy does not constitute authorization to conduct a search of the room.

    Authorized university personnel indicated above include:

    Full-time members of the Housing and Residence Life staff, including maintenance and custodial personnel.
    Hall Directors, Assistant Hall Directors, Resident Advisors, and Assistant Managers, subject to the following restriction:
    In non-emergency situations, prior authorization must be received from a full-time professional staff member in the Office of Residence Life.
    Unless circumstances prohibit, two staff members should be present when using the master key to enter a student’s room.
    University Police.
    University Fire Marshal.
    Protocol for using the master key to enter a residence hall room:

    No student room should be entered without knocking, regardless of whether the door is locked, unlocked, or open. The only situations in which staff are not required to knock are emergencies.
    Before using the master key, university personnel attempting to enter a room should identify themselves and state the reason for entry. In addition, they should request that the door be opened.
    If the door is not opened and authorized university personnel deem it necessary, the master key will be used to enter the student’s room for one or more of the reasons listed above.

    Looks like the kid could sue them to me, they came in and shoved him. Kid knew his rights I don’t know why the cops got so angry, just get a warrant and come back. Yes he acted very unprofessional but he’s not the professional there the cops are.

    I also don’t think most people really hate cops, they hate cops that think they are the sh!t and above the law. I know several cops and all are great guys, I think it’s truly a smaller majority of cops that give the rest a bad name.

    That was rather interesting. I don’t know about signing over rights under the Constitution when you enroll. That may or may not be the case. This kid will probably be living off-campus next semester which is what happened to my son and his room mate in a battle of one-ups-man-ship with the guys across the hall in Kirwan I. The university didn’t take kindly to firecrackers being slid under the door, peeing on the other door, etc. It was all in good fun.

    Seems to me both the cops and the kid need to learn a little respect and yet, I don’t see what this has to do with UK sports.

    Also, I don’t know if it’s still this way or not at UK, but I assume it is: Campus officials and security do not need a warrant to search your dorm room. Off campus police do. You’re living in UK’s property. If they find out you’re doing something illegal, residing there when you have actually dropped out, violating the campus alcohol policy (which appears to be the issue here) etc., then they can kick you out immediately.

    The kid did not know his rights – he was just being a dick.

    When I was a kid, I didn’t like the police, because I viewed them as bullies, trying to rain on the happiness of youth trying to have a good time. The older I get and the more upstanding a citizen that I try to be, the more I appreciate law enforcement and the job they do.

    There are a few bad apples that are policemen and a few bad apples in every profession. For the most part, the majority of people in every profession are doing a good job and making an honest living.

    I do not know the law or if the police were infringing on his rights. But, the way he was talking down to them, something bad is bound to happen to him, even if he keeps his nose clean the rest of the year. It is not very smart to berate the police. The best of luck to the young man, but I hope he starts treating authority figures with more respect, because his actions will catch up with him.

    Accoding to the rules in #39, they absolutely have the right to enter, but not search.. University police are authorized personnel and authorized personnel have the right to enter without permission “When there is reason to believe that a violation of university policy is taking place in the room and occupants in the room do not open the door when requested to do so”. I got kicked off campus when I was in school, and people are correct in saying you basically give up your rights when you live in a dorm. My roommates and I had our campus apartment raided by the Dean and police officers because they suspected we were breaking campus policies. It is the property of the school, so their rules apply. I just wonder why the police were so hesitant to enter his room? They had every right to do so.

    #67 is right.

    Here’s the situation: The kid lives on campus. UK does not allow alcohol on campus. The kid was observed and reported as pouring alcohol out of his dorm window. The police were called. Because of this line: “…When there is reason to believe that a violation of university policy is taking place in the room and occupants in the room do not open the door when requested to do so…” campus police could enter.

    And, like #67, I have some personal experience with this. My roommate and I got sent to AA meetings because our dorm room in Holmes Hall was searched when I was there in 2001, thanks to my dumbass roommate dancing around in our window with a bottle of Jack. Someone reported us, our RA and campus police came in, and we were F’d. We were both living off campus the next semester. We messed up, and we paid the price. Neither of us acted like a spoiled little c*nt like this kid.

    From the student code of conduct handbook..
    Right to Privacy

    8. A student shall be free from searches and seizures of person and possessions while on University property unless said search and seizure is conducted in accordance with state and federal laws. In cases of imminent danger or when there are reasonable grounds upon which to believe it is necessary to conduct a search immediately in order to protect life or property, searches may be conducted in the presence of the Dean of Students or another University official acting as the Dean’s authorized representative.

    http://www.uky.edu/StudentAffairs/Code/part1.html

    If this is the policy that applies, the university police are going to have a lot to answer for. I also agree, however, that the university should discipline the kid for his personal attacks and unneeded profanity. If I was the hearing officer, I would not expel him based on the police’s illegal conduct.

    I’m really trying not lose it on all you cop-bashing morons right now. Your ignorance and lack of any rational thought wouldn’t be as disturbing if there weren’t so many of you doing it on here. I know it might be hard for some of you to imagine this, but one day you may grow up, get married, and have a family. If you have human feelings at all you will most likely one day love your wife and kids more than anything else in this world. And one day, when someone comes into your house when your not home, and murders them, you will grieve. You will be so out of your mind that you won’t know how you can even make it through the next day, let alone go back to work at any time. Besides all you mature folks who will claim that you don’t need cops, cause you’re going to take care of this yourself, most rational people will want someone to be an advocate for them. Someone who has the resources to investigate for you. That person is a cop. If you think cops are just “no-good, doughnut-eating, power-hungry douches, then you probably are the reason we need cops. Yes, they’re human, many of them are flawed. But to make a blanket statement about all cops is juvenile, idiotic, and selfish. I am truly embarrassed of my state today.

    I don’t know campus policy but if its the same as a private residence he was right and the cop that forced is way in should be fired. If its not then those cops were scared of this kid they should’ve just walked in and explained the part where its not the same as a private residence and they can come in if they want. So he should’ve kept his cool an they should hire smarter campus cops (if those exist). Side note, in a cop is at my door situation and you didn’t call them. Don’t answer.

    The student code of conduct has no bearing here, and the police were wrong to quote it.

    What does have a bearing here is: http://www.uky.edu/Housing/undergraduate/policies.html

    Specifically:

    ROOM ENTRY POLICE

    #4 – When there is reason to believe that a violation of university policy is taking place in the room and occupants in the room do not open the door when requested to do so.

    And the violation of this policy is:

    http://www.uky.edu/StudentAffairs/Code/part4.html

    “Alcoholic beverages are not permitted in undergraduate housing leased from and supervised by the University. This includes residence halls‚ Fraternities‚ Sororities‚ and the undergraduate section of Greg Page Apartments. The intent of this regulation is the promotion and maintenance of an environment conducive to study for its residents‚ the vast majority of whom are under twenty—one years of age.

    Violation of this regulation may result in discipline under the Student Code of Conduct or termination of the housing contract‚ or both.”

    When I was at uk got pulled over by campus policeman. It was around dusk after playing tennis, the cop aggressively stated I flashed my headlights at him. For one, I did not flash or or turn my high beam on, and secondly in retrospect could never identify his car as a police car and had no reason or animosity to him. In any event, we had a mildly heated exchange and we went are ways. My point is he made up a reason to pull someone over, which state troopers etc have a little more integrity and responsibility for your and their own rights. This is the standard inferiority complex by security guards, rent a cops, campus police etc. They lack some depth in regards to a deeper understanding of legality and personal rights and appear at times to be driven by need for authority and accordingly are taken less seriously. Unfortunately, it takes us years to learn are own rights and be more aggressive about questioning any enforcement agency to explain themselves clearly in confronting or detaining any civilian

    Although no one here will condone the kid for the way he interacted with the Police, he was certainly within his rights. Campus police do have the rights to enter without a warrant in certain situations such as an emergency. A search of his room is certainly not one of those situations. He has video evidence that the cops illegally entered and searched his room and I hope those cops face repercussions. As an American citizen, it’s an obligation to defend your rights. Rights are what make this country so great.

    Would you people read? He was not within any of his rights according to what at least like 10 people have posted. He was suspected of having alcohol in a campus dorm, which is a direct violation of University of Kentucky policy, and did not open his door when requested to do so. Therefore, police could enter. It’s pretty simple.

    I live down the hall and was outside watching the whole time. This went on for about 30 minutes before he started recording. The cops knew they didn’t have the right to go in without a 24 hour notice or warrent first is why they didn’t go until they got really frustrated at the end. He knew his rights and exercised them.

    I don’t know the rules with regards to dorms on campus. But I will say this:

    1) Yes, the kid and the cops were jerks. But the kid has a right to be a jerk.
    2) The kid displayed courage. Assuming he has rights in his dorm, and in spite of his foul language, he should be commended for standing up for his rights. If we don’t stand up, tyranny will totally take over.

    And in case you missed it, tyranny has pretty much taken over the U.S. already.

    How many people reading this are surprised when I tell you that is the the law of the land for our own loving federal gov’t to arrest, detain, torture, hold indefinitely WITHOUT TRIAL, and KILL any American citizens it wants!? All they have to do is say you are a suspected “terrorist.”

    And you brain dead sheeple ZOMBIES who are surprised at this revelation think I’m lying?! Go look it up!

    #24. Does the first amendment protect this kid’s right to attend UK? There is a difference between being arrested for posting a video vs. getting kicked out of school for posting a video (and behaving in a manner inconsistent with the values of/detrimental to the university). Also, surely the university cops are allowed in the dorm room with or without probable cause/warrant/etc. since that type of language would have been included in the housing paperwork the kid would have signed prior to moving in.

    Seems to me that, based on the policies that others have posted above, the university police had the right to enter his room, but not to search it. “Authorization to enter a student’s room under this policy does not constitute authorization to conduct a search of the room.” Thus, had they found anything in the refrigerator, there is a good chance that the evidence would have been thrown out. Granted, the kid should be thrown off campus for being a prick. But it is also true that the cops lied to the kid on at least two separate occasions, when they said he had to let them in and he had to open his fridge.

    #79 – that policy may give the police permission to enter the room (and subject the kid to discipline), but it does not give them permission to search his clothes or his refrigerator. The problem for the police in this instance was multiplied IMO when they failed to find what they thought was in the room. Makes one wonder how “reasonable” their belief was that the kid was engaging in conduct involving alcohol.

    On another note, simply hating police is stupid. Many of them are real heroes. On the other hand, we cloak them with a lot of power, authority (i.e. to arrest), and in a lot cases immunity from civil liability or prosecution. As a result we do (and should) strictly require them to apply that power and authority within the confines of our constitutional based protections. I am a little surprised that the people who are shocked about the kids behavior (as I am) aren’t also shocked at the police forcing their way into the kids room.

    This poor youth will soon realize that the rights he thinks he has will not apply until he stops acting like a douche and enters the real world, gets a real job, and pays real taxes.

    I too once thought that authority needed to put up with my non-sense, as if I had an inalienable right to act any way I pleased. What you learn with some age and experience is that the rules are not written for you, they are written to be interpreted and enforced in whatever capacity the university/grown folk deem is in the best interest. Bottom line, he will lose because he is an idiot.

    Two things I’ve learned now that I’m 40 that I thought were ridiculous old-man sayings when I was 18:

    1) Nothing good is going on after midnight.
    2) When police knock on your door, they have a reason to be there. Either somebody died, or you broke the law. I’ve never seen an in-between, a gray area, or a case of mistaken identity. We live in the real world. Unfortunately, college students not only do not live in the real world, they don’t realize it.

If they’d walked in and found alcohol just sitting out like they did in my room like I mentioned earlier, he would’ve been F’d.

    Authorized university personnel may enter a student’s residence hall room without permission for the following reasons:

    To provide routine maintenance
    To provide routine inspections to ensure that residents are following health, fire, and safety regulations
    To respond to emergency situations; e.g., situations which threaten the health and/or safety of room occupants, and situations which require immediate maintenance to prevent property damage or immediate action to correct the health, fire and/or safety risk
    When there is reason to believe that a violation of university policy is taking place in the room and occupants in the room do not open the door when requested to do so.
    Authorization to enter a student’s room under this policy does not constitute authorization to conduct a search of the room.

    Authorized university personnel indicated above include:

    Full-time members of the Housing and Residence Life staff, including maintenance and custodial personnel.
    Hall Directors, Assistant Hall Directors, Resident Advisors, and Assistant Managers, subject to the following restriction:
    In non-emergency situations, prior authorization must be received from a full-time professional staff member in the Office of Residence Life.

    116. says that “People who do not cooperate with the police have something to hide.” I have never been accused of any crime in my life, but if university police came to my dorm and asked to search my room, I would force them to get a warrant. While I know all those things which I have placed in my room, there is always the possibility that one of my guests could have brought something illegal into my room and left it there. There is also the possibility that I have something in my room that is impermissible, but that I am not aware that the item is such. In either scenario, I am held responsible when I had intended to do no wrong. By forcing the police to get a search warrant, you are only forcing them to do their job correctly and appropriately, and keeping the system honest.

    Innocent folks tend to not act like they have a reason for the police question them, and thus the situation goes away pretty peaceably.

    Look around you. How many honest folks do you personally know that have gone to court on criminal charges? If you know more than 1 I’d start looking for a different group of friends. And then to hear the words “not guilty?” Statistically, having to stand criminal trial is pretty rare, and then to be acquitted would be an even tinier percentage.

    According to the UK Campus Housing guidelines provided in the student hand-book and what should have been signed off on by the resident at the beginning of the year, campus police have the right to enter a student’s room without authorization if the inhabitant is believed to be breaking school rules. From the video, I assume this whole thing happened over a few bottles of booze which are prohibited in any student-leased housing provided by the school (dorm rooms), regardless of age. The officers were in the right to be aloud access to the room to confiscate the alcohol that was allegedly sitting in the idiot’s window, it’s a shame that the officer’s did not know their rights as campus police a little better so they could have put this wanna-be-law-student in his place.

    Let’s be honest, the kid is an idiot and a d*ck. but he is right. The past 2 years I lived in the dorms. The second year, my RA came to my room because he thought he smelled alcohol coming from it, fortunately at the time I knew there was nothing in there. He knocked on my door, asked me to come in. I very clearly know my rights in the dorms I had a conversation with the hall director about it. I told him no that he could look from here, he then repeatedly asked to come in, I purposely gave him a hard time because I was friends with him and I knew the policies. He walked in and looked around and asked me to open the fridge I responded by saying I don’t want to open it, you can open it if you are that concerned(which is completely against the rules and could have gotten him fired if he did) he refused to do it insisting that he wanted me to do it. Eventually I did, but there was no alcohol, the smell was from the garbage can outside my door. Bottom line, they cannot enter your room, police or staff, unless it is an emergency, and by no means are they allowed to touch anything or open his fridge. Granted the kid is not the brightest, the cops were the adults here and did act like it and need to be punished accordingly. They are not above the law and the University should take actions accordingly

    Keeneland undercovers are the worst. I can’t tell you how many Alumni events I have gone to and watched those cops break countless laws. In one instance, the cop demanded everyone show their ID (mind you, 95% of this group was over the age of 25). So we simply asked “why do you need our IDs?” (cops can’t ask for your ID unless they have either a) a warrant or b) probable suspicion you are committing a crime -neither was addressed). The cop continued to challenge us, even going as far as threatening to arrest one of my buddies in particular who calmly stood there and denied the cop’s request and explained his rights. This agitated the cop to the point where he got in my friends face, probably 2-3 inches away, and told my friend he needed to step back because he would arrest him for ‘threatening a police office with physical confrontation’ even though the cop himself proceeded to get in his face. This is the point in the story where a lawyer in our group stepped up and promptly handed his card to the cops. needless to say, they walked away. Moral of the story: cops have good and bad apples. It seems that they always overstep their limits in instances where they think these ‘dumb college kids’ dont know their rights. btw, the kid in the video looks like a douchebag.

    Perhaps the kid should be spanked or have his mouth washed out with soap. But the officer who shoved him and searched the room illegally might also deserve a permanent vacation. What the kid did was akin to the journalistic tactics of “To Catch a Predator.” Yes, he baited the officers with foul language and indignance. But the one officer need not have fallen prey so easily.

    Power corrupts. This video proves it. Big Brother had the tables turned upon him. We should all make video of our encounters with law enforcement. How else for your word to stand up against that of a police officer? Recall ‘I have all of this in my head’ which was uttered by the same officer who treatened to have the kid kicked out of school. Without this video, that officer’s account of this encounter would stick, and like him or not, this kid would wrongfully be removed from school. And the officer would continue to bully innocent students.

    Police officers are public servants, here to “serve and protect.” This officer only served himself and protected his own ego. The kid exposed it. Punk that he may be.

    The young man in the video used poor language skills, but he was correct in not giving campus police consent to enter. Because consent to enter gives the police the consent to search. The overweight officer was also conducting himself in a very unprofessional manner. The threat of telling the student he will get his “ass kicked” out of the university warrants disciplinary action against the office in of itself. The video footage is telling about tactics some officers will use to try and trick individuals to give up their constitutional rights in order for the police to get the desired outcome they are looking for. Once the university police fail to obtain entry through coercion they resort to idol threats and intimidation of the student. Police preform a very important job, but just because they are a sworn officer doesn’t mean that you give up your constitutional rights because they wear a badge and carry a scary gun.

    I had a run in with that same “cop” while at haggin hall, officer Thompson (the one with the braces). The hall smelled like pot (it always did) and someone told him it was me and it was not. He came to my room convinced it was me and was VERY accusatory. He sighted my “dilated pupils” and wouldn’t stop accusing me. After I offered to let him search my room and found nothing he said, and I quote “we’ll since I can’t find anything I’m inclined to believe you” then left. No sorry, no thank you for cooperating, no nothing. It shook me pretty badly and after a call to his supervisor, he came and apologized sighting that “this dorm is a really bad place”. I’m sorry but isn’t it your job to make it safer without assuming everyone in it is an awful person? He was very unprofessional and the encounter was one of the reasons I left the university. While I don’t agree with this students actions, I think very little of the UKPD as a whole

    What about the part where someone is dropping glass bottles out of the window that brought the cops to his door to begin with? Is this kid’s right to be a d-bag more important than protecting those on the sidewalk below? They didn’t show up because they were tired of eating doughnuts somewhere, the cops were trying to do their jobs and trying to protect others by solving a problem. Making sure no one gets brained by a falling object sounds like enough reason to come by and be jerks to this kid. Too bad if his feelings were hurt, he wasn’t being very nice. Why should someone whose job already sucks (campus cop at 4am) have to put up with the additional bs this kid brings to the table? Sure, he has the right be a dick, but did he have to be? Could he have made his point in another less provacative way? I’m sure his parents are very proud.

    The kid was a dbag, but for all you all reading those entry rules saying the cops had the right to enter read the last line of that again.
    “When there is reason to believe that a violation of university policy is taking place in the room and occupants in the room do not open the door when requested to do so.”
    Clearly says when they do not open the door. From the video the kid clearly openned the door. So in that case the cops didnt have the right to enter. The kid clearly read these rules before this happened.

NATHAN (158)- If a cop wants to search my dorm I say ok and let him right in. If I haven’t done anything wrong I have nothing to hide. Sounds to me like you resisted a little not to mention that someone told him it was you, and if I were a cop and someone resisted I would think they were guilty too. To tell a cop no about anything MAKES you suspicious.

    If he wanted to defend his rights fine. Just tell the officer that you won’t allow him in unless he gets a warrant and leave it at that. Then if the officer over steps his boundaries fine.

    This kid constantly belittles and berates the officer, trying to get a rise out of him. He’s like the school bully who taunts you and says awful things and then when you punch him he runs to the teacher like a little bitch.

    Let me make it clear to any student of trying this…A dorm room is just like a hotel room. Any representative of the property may enter into the room after knocking and announcing intention to enter. If the Police officers are also representatives of the university no warrant is necessary to enter.At this point plain sight doctrin takes over. A warrant may be necessary to search if no violations are in plain sight.



  172. University Policy

    University Housing states that: Authorized university personnel may enter a student’s residence hall room without permission for the following reasons:
    “4.When there is reason to believe that a violation of university policy is taking place in the room and occupants in the room do not open the door when requested to do so.”

    However, “Authorization to enter a student’s room under this policy does not constitute authorization to conduct a search of the room.”

    Once the door was opened and no activity was seen by the University officials, they did not have consented rights to enter the room. Regardless of how arrogant and insulting the student was, the officials did not have a right to: enter the room, open the fridge, search through his belongigngs, or physically touch him.

    The threat of expulsion was only fear tactics.

Is he someone I want to punch in the face? Definitely. But with that said it doesn’t give the police officer any right to stoop to his level. The police officer should have been the “adult” in this situation and handled himself in a professional manner. You think maybe the kid set up the camera because he had previous run ins with this cop?

    There are plenty of college aged punks out there. Tons at every school. While it doesn’t excuse their behavior you hope they grow up and mature one day. Police officers don’t need to act like punks too. The kid wasn’t breaking the law. Just being a jerk.

    By the wording of the policy, they can only enter when they think a violation is taking place AND the occupants in the room do not open the door when requested to do so. That’s why this guy did open the door when requested, thus rendering them unable to enter the room. He may have been a douche but was extremely well-prepared for this situation.

They take a class at a university and automatically think they’re righteous, outspoken individuals who can disrespect whoever they want. The kid needs to be expelled, but the cops on campus were also in the wrong, and they may need to take a class to freshen up on the laws of search and seizure. And yes, they often abuse their power. I respect cops, but I’ve been harassed by these guys too and it can be a bit ridiculous (then again, they deal with ppl like this all the time so I can’t really fault them for why they are the way they are).

    It is certainly your prerogative to allow a complete stranger whose motives you are probably not aware of into your home to rummage through your home and all your possessions, but please excuse the rest of us if we don’t like people we don’t know going through all of our belongings. Also, from experience dealing with criminal defendants, police officers, and prosecutors on a frequent basis “resisting” an officer’s request to enter into your home and search it does not make you suspicious. It makes you smart. Police officers sometimes have to go fishing. And when they show up at your doorstep, without a warrant (i.e. no probable cause to arrest you or search your home), they are fishing. If you have done nothing wrong and you deny them entry you have saved yourself not only the intrusion by this stranger into your home, but also about 45 mins to a hour of your time while the search is being conducted. An officer’s suspicion does not get anyone into trouble with the law.

    I’ve also found the university’s policy concerning entry into a dorm room really interesting, and a little scary. The policy sounds more like something you would see referencing a jail cell than a private living space. I wonder if more students and their parents were actually aware of this policy (I can’t imagine a lot of folks read the manual) how many of them would chose to live outside of campus housing.

    The police officer shouldn’t have touched the guy, but other wise this seems fine. This wasn’t this student’s property. The dorm is owned by the university, it’s a different situation if it’s actual police on private land. This is just like a landlord coming into your house to inspect because you’ve had a dog in the apartment or haven’t taken out the trash in weeks or whatever else is a promise you made when you agreed to live there.

    It would be different if they were entering into his apartment to arrest him under state law for drinking underage.

    Pouring out alcohol is a party foul. That being said I don’t see the violation here. The kid pours out some liquor and a witness sees it so the campus police bust down his door. The question you should be asking is: if posession of alcohol is the violation and he poured it out as witnessed (no longer in posession) then how do the police have the right to enter his dorm. The answer: they don’t. If they didn’t pour out the alcohol then they would not have gotten in trouble, hence the party foul.

    Yes, it is good to stand up for your rights, but it doesn’t work well if you don’t know them. He probably signed at least 1 paper explaining this all to him, and no doubt had at least 1 meeting about it. Still, this idiot thought he didn’t live on campus, or something. I have no clue what he’s trying to say. I doubt he even knows what he’s saying. He’s probably scared because the RA’s actually brought the cops to his door.

    In the name of full disclosure, I must admit that I have had a negative experience with campus police before posting any further. My JR year at UK I was pulled over for allegedly running a stop sign on Columbia in the vicinity of Marquis at around 11:30pm on a Thursday night. As anyone knows, Thursday is a big party night for college students so I suspect he was out prowling for a DUI. Problem was that I was coming back from Willy T and he cited me for running a stop sign I didn’t even pass through after pulling me over and writing the citation for an intersection 3 blocks from where I was ultimately stopped. It was a minor inconvenience for me to go to the courthouse and cordially explain that the officer couldn’t prove that I even passed through the stop sign in question, much less run it reinforced by the fact that he pulled me over 3 blocks from where the incident allegedly took place. Anyways, he wasn’t there to contest his side so they ultimately threw it out.

    I don’t condone the kid’s behavior. He was ignorant and that tirade was embarrassing. However, the campus police should have been more composed. I commend them for not escalating the situation until the late shove. They should have been clearer in explaining the kid’s rights and whether he did or did not have to allow them to enter instead of slinging petty threats such as; they were going to personally see to it that he was expelled. My interpretation of the Student Code is that they do have the right to enter a student residence when violation of campus policy is suspected, but do not have the right to search and seize a student’s personal belongings. If that is a correct interpretation, then they should not have opened the fridge and should be punished to the full extent for doing so. The kid obviously did not consent, no matter how insubordinately he did so. Therefore if they had no legal or administrative right to look in his belongings they should be without a job today and with a lawsuit slapped on their asses. If they did have that right, then kid is SOL if they found any damning evidence. Didn’t sound like they got any solid proof other than the kid acting like a drunk buffoon, but I don’t think that kind of evidence holds up in a court of law.

    In short, I commend the officer’s patience right up to the fat one bursting in with a shove. I also commend the kid believing so steadfastly in his perceived rights that he recorded the incident and posted it to YouTube. If he is wrong, then his dumbassery is now public, he got himself nowhere and he has no one but himself to blame. Pretty sure he is right.

    From UK’s Residence Guidelines:

    **Authorization to enter a student’s room under this policy does not constitute authorization to conduct a search of the room.**

    So it sounds like the simpletons on here so readily accepting the authority of quasi-law-enforcement were wrong (certainly not pointing any fingers at Buford T Justice……………….. NOT!).

    Everyone keeps writing about the kid having rights or being a jerk but no one is talking about the cop pushing the kid. If that kid had pushed the cop instead he would immediately be in handcuffs and headed to jail. This is the double standard that citizens complain about with cops.

    Jughead is a police apologist who has no idea what he/she is talking about. Essentially, all of his/her ignorant rambling is calling for the police to break the law that they are mandated to enforce. The police have a specific mandate that state and federal legislatures have determined to be constitutional and within their power to maintain. Jughead’s method of policing is one that resembles the SS (Schutzstaffel) rather than a duly appointed and trained American citizen. If the police cannot set the example for following the law, then how are we to expect the average citizen follow it? He says, “I cannot wait for the Chinese to take over and tear our dysfunctional “Bill of Rights” to shreds”. What are you really saying? The Answer, nothing but incoherent nonsense that makes UK fans in general look bad. You are the reason UK fans get made fun of by pretty much the rest of the country. Neo-Con dumbass.

    Umm . . . the very Bill of Rights that some of you are questioning provides citizens protection against idiotic police actions and provides idiots with rights (such as this kid) which aren’t always pleasant or appropriate but you can’t distinguish “good” use of rights from “bad.” Who shall judge where the line of proper free speech is.
    I think 214 has it pretty close to correct EXCEPT . . . the kid shouldn’t be looking for a lawsuit AND the UNI COP shouldn’t be out of a job. He made a mistake in fulfilling his duty and should simply apologize to the kid and his captain . . . the could should graciously accept the apology and return his own to the UNI COP. There it should end with lessons learned and wisdom gained on both sides.

    1. Anyone staying in campus housing whether a)on-grounds or b)off-grounds at places like Greg Page must sign away some of their rights to privacy prior to moving into said housing. Can’t move into campus housing without signing the agreements. These allow TA’s, resident life, and campus police to enter the premises (but not necessarily search and seize). If you got stuff out in the open then you can be charged. They still have to get a warrant to actually search though. Only when a misdemeanor/crime has been committed can resident life even consider searches. Only when you consent can anyone actually search your dorm/apartment even on campus and they’ll try to get you to sign these consent forms if they’re trying to do a search.

    2. While normally I am all for standing up to police/tyranny I think these officers in the video showed pretty considerable restraint towards the kid who was definitely being a douchebag. The officers showed this restraint not because they didn’t have the right to enter the premise (see 1, they actually do and do so ALL THE TIME if there’s suspicion of drug use or possession) but because they probably did not want the situation to escalate. Also, if the kid wants to refuse them entry that comes back on the kid. It’s the same as refusing entry to a TA during a scheduled visit or resident life which has suspicion to believe illegal contraband is present. Can you do it? Sure. But….see 3.

    3. The kid will definitely not be allowed to stay in campus housing next semester. I can pretty much guarantee that because he refused entry to housing administrators. TAs and University personnel enter dorm rooms all the time during breaks and students are not afforded the right/option to refuse this, so entry on grounds of suspicion is more than permissible even if there is no warrant to actually perform a search and seizure. By refusing them entry, im pretty sure the kid is in violation of the forms he signed so he could move into campus housing.

    4. I doubt the housing administrators or the police have the power to have him actually kicked out of the university because that’s a power reserved to the Undergraduate Dean and/or any committees assigned to student conduct. Plus, there’s no grounds to have him kicked out of UK on. He’ll just have to find another place to stay which can be difficult to do in the middle of the school year.

    I’d like to see how this situation plays out going forward.

When people like you feel that verbal attacks on others are OK, then you should not be shocked by the physical attacks that may follow. Be respectful when you disagree with someone and the response is usually reciprocated.

    I remember living in Lexington, one time the police let a fireman get shot and killed bc they refused to come into danger to help her…then I remember a few yrs ago they came in a house of a beaten woman and declared her dead (for whatever reason they think they are a coroner) , she was actually alive, they were so brilliant they didn’t even check her pulse. She ended up dying bc of they just decided she was dead and took no action.

    Here’s the problem with police around Lexington, they have some sort of chip on their shoulder, especially as a college kid you can’t even go up and ask them questions, without some sort of intimidation. The second word in your motto, serve….is what you should do…your a public servant and the public pays your wages. If it takes putting a uniform on to make you tough or a man…then you aren’t one.

    Right on point. One other thing to add to this is the fact that the police became involved in this is a big strike against the student in the video. I was an RA for a year and unfortunately had to do several drug/alcohol write ups. Other than to collect the bottles after the write-up, the only time when the police were ever called in our hall was to arrest someone that was dealing drugs out of their dorm room. The RAs and Hall Director are always the first to carry out alcohol busts, and the police are only called when a serious crime is involved or the student physically blocks entry/threatens personnel.

    Long story short: This guy was already breaking university policy by refusing an RA/Hall Director access to his room (and I can only imagine what he said then), and regardless of what the police did that alone is enough to get him kicked out of the dorms. At the very least he will probably have to transfer dorms and be placed on some sort of probation.

There are over two dozen posts in this thread CLEARLY explaining why the kid did NOT have the right to refuse entry to his room. The police should not have gone through his clothes or refrigerator, but he had to let them in.

    And to the guy saying, “well he obviously was smart and studied the rules because he opened the door,” you’re a dumbass. If you just partially open the door, as this kid did, and refuse entry while clearly blocking line of sight of your whole room, then it’s the same thing as not opening the door. You’re still refusing entry into your room.

    To the people saying they can’t come into the rooms because your dorm is a house and they can’t enter without a warrant you are wrong. When you get a dorm room YOU DO NOT OWN IT. It is still UK property and therefore with probable cause or suspicion, cops can enter the room because it is UK property. They can search drawers and shelves, however, they can not move your stuff or rifle through any personal property. That is where the line is drawn.

If you work in the legal profession, then you know that if you sign a legally binding contract that says, “University staff may enter when … there is reason to believe that a violation of university policy is taking place in the room and occupants in the room do not open the door when requested to do so…” then you are subject to those terms.

    260 – UK rules do supersede state/federal/whatever. The way the do it is by consent or waiver. Just like you can consent to the police searching your car after you get pulled over, UK has gotten the consent from this kid up front. Him living there is predicated on the consent to search his room, just as much as it is for him to pay his room and board. Also, if you listen closely the police suggest they are part of school administration.

    Just like it would be a violation of some right to privacy if I hacked into your computer and figured out all the website you went to, facebook can do that because it has gotten your consent up front, it’s a condition of you using the service.

    #275 – No one’s calling you an idiot except for the “Cops suck” person, and he’s obviously the idiot. You’re obviously well informed and intelligent, which is a rarity among KSR commenters.

    IF these were not UKPD then I may feel a little more sympathy for them, but anyone who has attended UK knows that those guys are pricks and a complete joke. I agree the kid could have proved his point in a more respectable way, but more power to him for having some fur on his peaches. IMO they (UKPD) deserve little to no respect. UK has a ridiculous number of assaults and robberies on campus while all they seem to care about is busting UK students for alchohol. Just my take as a current UK student.

    the only fur on that kid’s peaches is rat hair that he hot glued on, probably from the rats on his dorm

    I’m with you 278. This kid is a punk and needs a good ass kicking. That said he was right other then his mouth which isn’t illegal stupid but not illegal. When your dealing with cop your dealing with someone who gets his jollies off writing a speeding ticket or messing with people. I’ve got no problem with a cop doing his job. If someone is braking a law arrest them. I’ve got a problem with the god complex most have. It took 3 officers to deal with a kid pouring alcohol out a window. Really
    #277 Well informed really? You have a right to privacy in this country even in your dorm room. We have let our police bend the laws to suit their needs to long. How many have seen a police officer drink and drive. My point exactly. They will bust other(which they should) but think its alright for them to do it. Com on man

    we affirm the judge’s order allowing suppression of the drugs and other evidence seized in an illegal search of the defendants’ room.

    #280 – Yeah, the dude’s well informed. He even cited an applicable case as an example. #282 just cited some crap about evidence that was seized, which is not even relevant to this situation since no evidence was seized.

    Like others have said, the search was wrong, but entry into the room was not.

    Read this comments section, #280. Others have posted and spelled out in very plain English why the UK Police could come into your room. It sucks and it was wrong that they opened your fridge, but whatever, you pushed them into doing it. When you live in UK’s dorms, you sign away some of your rights. Welcome to the real world.

    These cops are idiots for letting a kid talk to them this way. If they were smart they would have arrested him for verbal assault of a police officer. That being said this kid hilariously owned the UK police. Verbal abuse at its best!

    That verbal “abuse” was pathetic. Making fun of braces and saying some cops sucks a penis is only funny if you’re currently sucking on that kid’s penis, which obviously no one is. Maybe if a girl actually talked to him, he wouldn’t be so sad, angry, and pathetic.

    The only reason he was being verbally abusive is to try as get under the cops skin, which he did successfully.

    Just because the kid is in college, he thinks he’s intelligent. He looks EXACTLY like to kind of person who would act that way towards someone in a position of authority. It’ll be nice to see follow-up that says he was expelled from the school.

    Who gives a hoot about politics in this instance. I feel like that kid was righteous in expressing his rights instead of being walked all over by cops. You know what’s wrong with America? Not standing up for your self and honor. Imagine if the guy wasn’t a Dick tough….

    A police officer abusing/overstepping their authority iin a criminal way s no better than than the guy in a dark alley raping your mother. Yes, the cursing asshole was the victim. Aside from a sore vagina both victims feel the same afterward. Imagine if this guy didn’t have a camera. All of the “threats” people are posting will probably add to his settlement.

    Why do I look so fat? Why do i get no lovin? Why do i have braces when i’m 40? Why do i have no hair? Why do i not know the rules? Oh yea, cause i’m a CAMPUS cop. LOL, not much difference from a security guard.

    UK has fired one of the 2 officers involved in this altercation (the one who came in physical contact with the student): http://www.nbcnews.com/id/50180471/ns/local_news-lexington_ky/

    283 could have actually looked at the link before he judged my opinion. In the first paragraph it goes into the applicable issue. Anyways, obviously you all who blamed the kid (who was an ass) must have been right since they fired the other guy.
