Is it legal for cops to break into my front porch that was locked and make me sign a search warrant?

The cops broke into my front porch that had a locked door on it and then made me sign a search warrant. I had to be taken to the ER when this happened and stayed in ICU for two days. My mother-in-law had to make them leave my house so she could lock it.

    Either tell us the whole story or keep it to yourself. After the police broke into your porch, there was a conversation. The police did not put a gun to your head and say sign this. What was the conversation?

    You do not have to sign a search warrant. The police has the right to search and enter your property because you committed some crime according to their witness.

    Cops cannot break in to get a signature on a warrant. They would not need a warrant signed by you to search.
