Cop: May I enter your house to look for illegal items?
Cop: thank you *enters*
Let's go back to this for a moment.
It was apparently written with irony intended, but it all depends on your relationship with the local police.
The relationship between the law-abiding citizenry and the police should be one of trust and cooperation.
My reply would be "Of course, I have nothing to hide. Be careful to wipe your feet, and don't wake the dog."
Every citizen whose I.Q. exceeds (or at least equals) that of a moron
shud know that the relationship between government and the Individual citizen is ADVERSARIAL
and privacy, on the one hand
jurisdiction of government on the other hand, are INVERSELY PROPORTIONAL
( It also boggles the mind that Mr. McTag wants an agent of government
rifling thru his personal belongings, making an inevitable mess in his house; very odd; perhaps a strange fetish ?
He did not say what he does with the police officer, when he finishes searching.)
Note also the oxymoron (or near oxymoron)
of "law abiding citizen"; like unicorns, thay cannot exist.
