    Two questions - does a drug dealer have less of a right to defend his home than an ordinary citizen? Yes, he's definitely assuming a higher risk than a law-abiding citizen, but it's still his home. Second question, does shooting a home invader give the police probable cause to search your home? How would you feel if you shot an armed invader IN YOUR HOME and the police used that as a reason to search your house? Is that legal?

    I doubt the protections of castle doctrine or a similar defensive statute would apply during the commission of a crime. IE: selling drugs out of your house.


    Assuming you were not doing anything wrong, I BELIEVE the police have the right to search an active crime scene. Even if it appears like a cut and dry home invasion, they still have to investigate. Would I like anyone searching my home after I was forced to protect myself from some lowlife, of course not. But I would be on the phone to a lawyer right after I called the police. I can ask him/her about the search.
