Would USA crime be reduced, if all policeman/policewoman did not need a warrant to search any property on the first attempt?
(The officer would be held accountable for any abuse). Lots of searches are not done immediately because the police do not have a warrant, and that gives the criminals time to hide evidence or kidnap victims.

How would this reduce crime? I have yet to see anyone, with warrants or without them refrain from stealing anything. There are people who will steal stuff from places like Walmart in broad day.

Depends on your definition of crime as some would see warrantless searches as a crime in and of themselves.
