What really chaps my hide isn't the fear of police storming into my house illegally. I would have no problem seeking recourse, and would cooperate fully with police. My problem with this whole fiasco. . .is that home invaders these days identify themselves as police!

What is a citizen supposed to do when awoken by men shouting "Police!"? I have a gun to protect myself from bad guys. . .but I sure don't want a gun in my hand if it's the actual police in my house.

The law must allow us to protect ourselves from the criminals. This law in effect ties your hands behind your back, in your own home, when someone simply yells "Police", which is happening more & more. I'd love to know what these lawmakers would do in such a situation - allow your family to be robbed, raped, and killed because you're not allowed to defend yourself in your own home?

I think when you combine both of the recent Indiana rulings-
1-you cant prevent the illegal entry by the police and
2- Police dont have to knock when serving a warrant
you are going to end up with dead,innocent citizens and a few dead cops. Do they actually expect a dad/husband to just sit there and do nothing when someone kicks in his door at 1 oclock in the morning?

So, if you believe the SCOTUS could uphold it, therefore making it the law throughout the land, then why would this ruling "seal the deal"? It wouldn't matter where you lived, it could happen.
