Court Upholds Warrantless Entry, Seizure of Gun Rights Activist

Krysta Sutterfield, who has made news because of her practice of openly carrying a handgun at a local church and outside a coffee shop, drew police attention in 2011 after her psychiatrist reported a suicidal remark Sutterfield made during a difficult appointment.
Milwaukee police forced their way into a gun rights advocate’s home without a warrant and literally kidnapped her for an “emergency mental evaluation“.
Seizing her firearms were apparently justified under the circumstances and therefore protected from her violation of civil rights claims.
Sutterfield says police violated her rights with unreasonable search and seizure and her Second Amendment right to keep a gun.
