    Court: No right to resist illegal cop entry into home

    It's a sad day in Indiana. The Indiana Supreme Court decided today 3-2 that the police no longer require a warrant to enter your home and that you have no right to resist them. The judge flat out said if you are arrested you can pay your own bond and then file a complaint with the court system.

    The American dream was a nice idea. It looks like this country is meant to fall, one freedom at a time.

    That is absolutely insane. I'll just have to add Indiana to the list of states I'll never live in.

    Those three judges need to be impeached - NOW!, then disbarred and run out of the country.

    The Fourth Amendment (Amendment IV) to the United States Constitution is the part of the Bill of Rights which guards against unreasonable searches and seizures, along with requiring any warrant to be judicially sanctioned and supported by probable cause. It was adopted as a response to the abuse of the writ of assistance, which is a type of general search warrant, in the American Revolution. Search and arrest should be limited in scope according to specific information supplied to the issuing court, usually by a law enforcement officer, who has sworn by it.
    In Mapp v. Ohio, 367 U.S. 643 (1961), the Supreme Court ruled that the Fourth Amendment applies to the states by way of the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment.
    In Katz v. United States, 389 U.S. 347 (1967), the Supreme Court ruled that the amendment's protections do not apply when the searched party lacks a "reasonable expectation of privacy".
    The Supreme Court has also ruled that certain searches and seizures violated the Fourth Amendment even when a warrant was properly granted.

    The Judge has stated that you can't resist a LEO who makes an illegal entry ... He did not define defending self and family from a criminal.

    Start shooting ;)
    There are to many instances of officer impersonation during home invasion crimes ... Start shooting !!

    My stomache is still turning over this. Now if someone illegally breaks into my house I have to ask for ID before I start shooting.
