This really doesn’t pass the smell test. I’m glad to this case moving forward.
Again, I wouldn't advise actually doing this, but I like theorising.
I'm extrapolating that that term (beyond a German context, or maybe the commenter is German) is being used, here.
I mean, I get LE and the justice system is given a lot of crap for being behind the times, but cmon now. This is slam dunk tier legal argumentation here.
I'm not even a lawyer and I'm pretty sure I could convince a judge on that point. If they issue a warrant for something, and you do something to what the warrant was issued for, you tampered with evidence. This is heavily frowned upon. Especially in the middle of a court room, right in front of a judge.
If you want to send a message via civil disobedience, all power to you.Just understand, you're still going to have to deal with the consequences.
I don't like it any more hand anyone else here, bit until you can sell a legislature on changing a bunch of this, in court is the absolute LAST place you want to make a stand on it. Judges are going to go with the least amount of reinterpretation to keep the system and Law Enforcement trucking.
