    It wasn't Camara. The Camara case gives municipal authorities the right to inspect a private dwelling for violations of municipal codes such as fire codes, health codes, housing ordinances, etc. The must get a warrant prior to such a search, but they need not present probable cause to the judge that violations exist. They can present evidence such as the extended time since the last inspection, the general condition of neighboring dwellings, etc. So Camara does not address emergency searches. In fact, no search anticipated by the Camara case would ever be an emergency.

    Look here for cases that would better support warrantless entry in an emergency:

    Minnesota v. Olsen

    United States v. Santan

    Warden v. Hayden

    Thompson v. Louisiana

    Mincey v. Arizona

    Get a No Cost Background Check Scan at

    Its a sensible way to start. The site allows you to do a no cost scan simply to find out if any sort of data is in existence. A smaller analysis is done without cost. To get a detailed report its a modest payment.

    You may not realize how many good reasons there are to try and find out more about the people around you. After all, whether you're talking about new friends, employees, doctors, caretakers for elderly family members, or even significant others, you, as a citizen, have a right to know whether the people you surround yourself with are who they say they are. This goes double in any situation that involves your children, which not only includes teachers and babysitters, but also scout masters, little league coaches and others. Bottom line, if you want to find out more about someone, you should perform a background check.

    Off the top of my head I'd say Terry v. Ohio, but I'm not going to research to do your homework.
