Skip to comments.Court: No right to resist illegal cop entry into home
Posted on 05/13/2011 6:33:44 PM PDT by WildSnail
INDIANAPOLIS | Overturning a common law dating back to the English Magna Carta of 1215, the Indiana Supreme Court ruled Thursday that Hoosiers have no right to resist unlawful police entry into their homes.
In a 3-2 decision, Justice Steven David writing for the court said if a police officer wants to enter a home for any reason or no reason at all, a homeowner cannot do anything to block the officer's entry.

What ever happened to the country I grew up in?
That sounds like bad law.
Time to send this case to the USSC.
Time to disbar Steven David. He’s an enemy of the Constitution.
We have Republican RINO to thanks for this judge.
“Governor Mitch Daniels has made his first pick to the Indiana Supreme Court and it is Boone Co. Circuit Court Judge Steven David.”
I think the idea is that you can solve it later in court vs having a fist or firefight each time you think the cop is entering your house illegally.
The problem is that the cop isn’t punished for doing so, the taxpayers are.
Agreed. The US Constitution trumps that state in this issue.
BOOOOOOO SHIT !!!!
I think most people would “take some offense” at anyone breaking into their home. Hoosiers...recall that worthless, putrid, Constitution-hating, Bill-of-Rights-hating judge.
Sorry, I looked but didn’t see the other post.
I’ve read this, very interesting. Based on what we know from the articles, IMO, the ruling should have centered around whether the entry was lawful. I’d say it was lawful entry as the police were in pursuit and had probable cause.
The disturbing part is the court attempted to redefine the 4th amendment with the ruling. I guess in Indiana now if someone knows the “password” police, you have to open your door. Wonder what they would think about looking at the business end of a Colt 1911 when the door opens?
Kiss my behind Indiana.
Now I see that this is the 3rd thread. The original (?) one is here: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2719318/posts
Mod — pull this thread please!
I really don't care what the court says - if they ain't got a warrant, they're entering illegally and are thus subject to being killed.
Didn't the police somewhere just kill a Marine Veteran that SERVED THIS COUNTRY in Iraq? Seems that it's OK in the judge's eyes for the cops to kill people defending their property, but it's not OK for people to protect that for which they have worked.
This country is getting more and more like NAZI Germany.

If this is appealed, I suspect it will be overturned.
Some of us suspect that this is being fostered by Obots who are trying to get Freepers to make threats about judges.
Currently, if an LEO walks into your house uninvited, without a search warrant and finds, say, a bag of grass on your kitchen table and arrests you for possession, the case would be thrown out. No probable cause.
This is major.
