It's an interesting subject. Two very important points that were ignored are that
1) warrants have to be issued for raids, so the judiciary in effect sets the ground rules, don't they? And
2)the newer officers we see are often formed by a society that is driven by values contrary to traditional morality(the same reason, I think, for many abuses we see in modern society.)
