College Cop Fired after Barging into Dorm Room without 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.
The student, Graham Gaddis, was antagonizing and obnoxious, but there is no law against that.
The officer who was fired is David Thompson, the one who shoved Gaddis aside as he entered the dorm room and made his way to the refrigerator to search for alcohol.
Police say witnesses saw Gaddis dump liquor bottles out the window, but that was not enough to gain them access into his dorm room without a warrant.
