Judge Michael grants suppression motion in warrantless search case

When you read the facts as written by Senior Judge Michael in U.S. v. Gillespie, you get the impression that law enforcement had a pretty good idea what they would find inside the apartment (where the people had just run out the backdoor into the snow), but their plan to get inside (they heard a baby crying somewhere) was kind of lame. They went into the apartment anyhow, and found no babies but did find scales and baking soda and guns and cocaine.
