there was a search warrant issued for a man named, Booker T. Hudson. There was a “beyond reasonable doubt” that he had illegal drugs and firearms within his home. When the police arrived, they knocked on the door and announced themselves. However, they only waited a few seconds before entering Hudson’s unlocked home. Drugs, in large quantity, were found. Also, a loaded gun was found in a chair Hudson was sitting in. He was then charged for drug and firearm possession. Now, even though the police had a search warrant, the police failed to follow the Fourth Amendment. The “knock and announce” rule states that officers are required to wait up to 30 seconds after knocking and announcing they are there, before they enter a home. It was said that the evidence could not be used based on those terms. However, the Michigan Court of Appeals said that there was an exception to suppressing evidence if the evidence in question would have been found anyways.
