fishing cops

Supreme Court refuses to hear adult bookstore owner's appeal, essentially the cops went on a fishing expedition, confiscated his entire adult inventory, by the time he was acquitted he was out of business. This is one of the problems with giving the police too much discretion, since they had access to the titles in his inventory if the judges involved had been on the up-and-up they'd have put the specific titles in question in the warrant.
