They say it’s about sparklers and Roman candles but they need a warrant to search Parking Lots for sparkler violators.
Same for PA police in New Jersey searching liquor store parking lots.
The 14th amendment prohibits unequal state laws from being enforced. The amendment limits the actions of all state and local officials, including those acting on behalf of such an official. That would be the Police in the case especially where citizens cross state lines.
But it’s not just the 14th amendment that the police routinely violate by leaving their jurisdiction, their geographic jurisdiction in trolling operations.
The Commerce Clause in the Federal Constitution as written describes an enumerated power,Article I, Section 8, Clause 3 that the United States Congress shall have power “To regulate Commerce with foreign Nations, and among the several States, and with the Indian Tribes.”
The “among the states” part means the citizens of every state have the same rights and immunities and those rights and immunities are to be protected, not used against American citizens.
So the State Police are outside their power searching parking lots in New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
If you are busted take this to a lawyer and ask if the charges can be dismissed based on the Federal Constitution and the 14th Amendment.
