The police in Alabama have broad powers to search you and your property for contraband. But there are limits, starting with the Fourth Amendment to the Constitution. Unfortunately, what happens in the real world does not always go the way the law says it should.
Disputes are not uncommon among people with differing opinions and values, including among teenagers. While violence is rare, police alleged that an ongoing dispute may have been the motivation behind a recent shooting in Alabama. The incident left two people in the hospital and three people facing criminal charges, including attempted murder and assault.
