    if you clink on the link to Augilar above, it further links back to several antique Supreme Court Cases from the 20's and 30's  where the government tried to advance that very "good faith" exception to the warrant requirements, arguing that police officers aren't lawyers after all.  They were repeatedly bitch-slapped by the Supreme Court.  In fact , the court used that lack of legal knowledge to insist on warrants issued by independant judges rather than Police officers caught up in "the passion of the chase"

    it used to be old and musty settled law, its's becoming very au courant again however...
