911 call. Dispatch sends officers to wrong house, 20 miles away. Woman at wrong house allows search. Coincidentally, a fugitive is inside. Gunfight ensues. Cop dies. Search finds meth. Bizarrely, woman now charged with 2nd degree murder b/c of the meth. https://t.co/VOWyzPaGgV

This works for all privileges — attorney-client, spousal, doctor patient, TV commentator, white, etc.
