    Cool Warrantless

    Hi,

    Warrantless could be synonym of inexcusable? Something done without permission? What else?

    Re: Warrantless

    I’m not sure the adjective ’warrantless’ is commonly used or is a word at all? Please explain how you came across this term.

    It was on CNN.com - Breaking News, U.S., World, Weather, Entertainment & Video News yesterday. Something about Dick Cheney who had bugged some other politician's offices. The word warantless appeared. Dictionaries show warrant less but no warrantless. I should have copied the passage.

    Re: Warrantless

    Absolutely right - without a warrant/permission to do something.

    It can also mean unnecessary - "There was warrantless destruction of the woodland when the developers cut down the trees."

    Thank you. Why doesn't it appear in the dictionaries?
