Well, Just Kiss the 4th Amendment Goodbye...........

The 4th amendment states:
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized."

That's been the rule since this country was founded.
The Indiana Supreme Court just decided otherwise-
Court: No right to resist illegal cop entry into home

"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."

Yeah. Go ahead and read the above quote again and let that sink in a bit.
And welcome to the new Police State, folks!

I saw this last night at Mayberry's place and his post title says it quite well - "Fire up the tar kettle".

Now I work with law enforcement all the time and have good friends who are cops so it's not like I have a hard-on for cops. Quite the opposite. EMS, ER folks and Cops work hand in hand and develop close personal relationships. We all look after each other because we know that each of us may need the others if we ever end up in a "Bad Shit" situation.

I have a lot more to say about this but I gotta go to work so I'll post more later.

Nothing good can come from this kinda shit, folks.

Gratuitous Picture for a Saturday Morning-
This is what crap rulings like this leads to.
