College Cop Fired after Barging into Dorm Room without Warrant

• Photography Is Not a Crime
In what turned out to be a solid victory for camera-wielding citizens throughout the country, a University of Kentucky-Lexington police officer was fired less than 48 hours after a video went viral showing him and another officer barging into a college student’s dorm room without a warrant.

There was no placing him on paid administrative leave until the “investigation” is completed.

There was no attempting to prosecute the student on felony wiretapping charges.

And there was no attempt to rewrite the Fourth Amendment on the basis that the student was guilty of contempt of cop.

Yup, the student removed it and made copyright violation claims elsewhere it has been posted.   So, either he figures he can make a buck off of it after freely putting it out there, he has a civil lawyer who told him to yank it, in retrospect he is embarassed of his language or this was part of a deal with the school administration.

It seems that the video has been removed from Youtube by the user.
