    Court: No right to resist illegal cop entry into home

    I'm sorry, but I just find this scary. Hopefully it gets overturned and hopefully it doesn't spread to other states.

    I don't expect that to hold up in the long run. The U.S. Supreme Court has previously supported citizens in this sort of issue. They upheld a lower court ruling that, "Citizens may resist unlawful arrest to the point of taking an arresting officer's life if necessary." This is clearly not the same situation, but it is similar.

    I hope you're right. I can sort of see where the Indiana Supreme Court is coming from, if the Police illegally enter my home they would rather I take the offending officer(s) to court instead of resorting to physical violence against them. Fair enough. But to say that I have no right to resist whatsoever? If the police want to illegally enter my home I just have to let it happen then pater try to prove that it was an illegal entry in court? That is going way, way too far, it sets a horrible precedent, and I really hipe that the U.S. Supreme Court strikes it down and fast before it spreads to other states.

    I would petition help from other constitution upholding groups like; NORML, NRA, your local Legal Aide.
    Make a name for yourself and get paid as chairman of the group.
    And Vote out the Rat Bastages that enabled that law.
