In Indiana, police officers are upset over a new law allowing residents to use deadly force against public servants, including law enforcement officers, who unlawfully enter their homes.

The law was signed by Republican Governor Mitch Daniels in March, reports the San Francisco Chronicle.

The law was adopted after the Indiana State Supreme Court ruled that there was “no right to reasonably resist unlawful entry by police officers," after a man assaulted an officer during a domestic violence call.

The law's author, Republican state Sen. Michael Young, said there haven't been any cases [yet] in which people have used the law to justify shooting police.

The National Rifle Association lobbied for the new law, claiming that the Indiana State Supreme Court decision had legalized police to commit unjustified entries.

Tim Downs, President of the Indiana State Fraternal Order of Police, told Bloomberg News that the law could open the way for people who are under the influence or emotionally distressed to attack officers in their homes: “It’s just a recipe for disaster. It just puts a bounty on our heads.”

Indiana is the first U.S. state to specifically allow force against officers, according to the Association of Prosecuting Attorneys in Washington, which represents prosecutors.

ok, so let's go househunting in Indiana, I could handle a roommate/commune thing with most of you, but CD sleeps outside with the dogs. It's good to know that there are still people in the system that are libertarian enough to throw us a bone once and again (calm down CD, the bone is metaphorical.)
Funny you should say that. I'm heading off to check liens on tax sale properties for a friend. The day before the auction, should be fun! Not!

Yea CD.000001 advise is to sell your house and buy silver. Silver going to $600/oz according to him. So yea, he can live in the dog house while he waits to cash in.
Now this is what I'm talking about!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am against violence but I think this makes it fair for both parties. If you don't want to get shot don't go outside and commit crimes. And for cops if you don't want to get shot do not enter any ones house without a warrant.
Most cops are thugs with badges. They are sociopathics who think they are above the law. When TSHF, you can bet at least 90% of them will be heading for the hills.

Whoever your future assailant may be, you guys had better be stocking up on ammo. It could be more valuable than gold someday. I buy all types, even ammo I don't have the guns for.
