Re: Police Raid 9-Year-Old Girl, Confiscate Winnie The Pooh
Littlebit more info about this issue (Im from Finland).
Police can raid anyones home here without court orders. However, they can only do so if the crime the person is suspected of committing is such, that you can get 6 months prison or more. This girl committed only a petty crime that can be punished by fine...no prison. So the police committed the actual crime by searching their home. But this is just one case beside many other cases, where police raids someones house without proper rights.
But nobody is interested about this, since everyone here believes to police and "justice state". Finland is not a justice state at all. We get more "sentences" from Europen Court of Human Rights than ALL THE OTHER NORDICS COUNTRIES TOGETHER. Actually, we get them per capita 4x what Russia gets. So, in that sense, our human rights are much worse than in Russia. These are clear facts and you can check them up.
Grail Knight, I'm with you. While the search may have been a violation of law according to what FINNfellow posted, I abhor these biased misrepresentations. You'd think from the way this story has been stated that the 9 year old was living alone, had her house surrounded by a swat team and surrendered to be handcuffed while her doll was taken away.
What exactly does torrentfeak.com find wrong with letters being sent out in the US, informing Internet account holders that "they should stop sharing copyrighted material on BitTorrent." Do they not have a right to do that?
And demanding settlements isn't new. It's been around for quite awhile, not just in copyright cases, but in all cases.
