When has he ever successfully done that? He seems to ambulance chase after the fact and then lose a frivolous lawsuit.He must've been jumping in joy when a Daughters Of Confederate Vets in Virginia got torched.
Also probably ambivalent when blacks nearly beat sword bro to death and kick another dude's teeth out. Or the shopkeeper and his wife getting beaten by 2x4s. These are Douchette's clients, after all. He probably relishes in the process of getting these animals out of jail and onto the streets again.
It's pretty well established a front porch is curtilage, or at least most front porches would be (it is possible there are some front porches that are not since it is a rather complex analysis sometimes). The police need something akin to probable cause to search it or, IMO, demand people leave it. At the same time, it may be a "lawful order" to say to go inside and there might be some penalties for refusing such a lawful order. I personally don't think the behavior of the police in this instance was reasonable, though, and the porch sitters were entirely within their rights to be on their porch recording. It's fairly obvious, IMO, that the cops were angry about the First Amendment protected recording, not some bogus curfew violation.If I could walk up to your house and step onto the porch without breaking and entering, it's a public place, at least by that definition.
So while in theory you're allowed to be on your private property adjacent to your home, if a cop orders you to go inside... you should probably go inside.
