Abstract

This comment addresses the distinction between a forcible entry for an arrest and one for a search. In doing so, the comment looks to the fourth amendment's bifurcated standard for searches and those for arrests. Balancing governmental interests with the privacy rights of individuals, the comment relays that a warrantless entry into the home for an arrest shall only be acceptable given certain exigent circumstances.
