    Fail fail fail. A huge civil lawsuit in 3......2......1. If the SFPD just wanted to help Apple to circumvent having to go through an investigation and having to ask a judge for a warrant, fine. However, they are still obligated to tell the citizen that he has a right to refuse the private detectives entry to his home and property. You can't show up, flash your badge, then look the other way while corporate clown detectives enter the house. You have a sworn duty to protect a citizens rights, not help a corporation step on them. FAIL.

    see what happens as soon as Steve retired mmmaaaannnnnnnnnn

    as big of a fan of Apple products as I am, this is a huge mistake.

    I don't blame Apple as much as I do the PD, they should be sued by Mr. Wetback even if he is illegal

    they should read the constitution and the fourth amendment, it is part of their occupation

    From what I've seen online, the guy allowed them in to search. Either way, this would be fucking ponderous...

    Except I'm betting it's a publicity stunt by Apple.

    Stupid character limit in thread titles. :icon_mrgr

    This. And at first it appears the police even denied they were there at all. And maybe even the Apple investigators tried posing as cops to gain entrance.

    And this thing's out there somewhere, but because of what happened with last year's iPhone 4 thing, nobody's touching it. The guy that found it and the guy that arranged the sale through Gizmodo just got criminally charged last month what happened in that case. Apparently if you find property in California and don't try and give it back to the owner you can be busted for it.

    Yeah, but we're protected from search and seizure if it's done under false pretenses. Of course this is only one side of the story, but the Apple employees are required to state who they work for, just as police would be.

    Yup. I don't know the specifics, but you have to make a "reasonable effort" to return the property, such as notifying the local PD. After x days if the property isn't claimed, you're entitled to it.

    For starters, don't let the police into your home without a search warrant.

    I don't think the guy had any problem with the police searching his house (he seems to have gotten rid of the evidence long before they arrived), he's just pissed that it wasn't even real police conducting the search.

    Even if I have nothing to hide, I'd tell them to fuck off and come back with a search warrant.
