Better keep your homes tidy in case you have unexpected visitors. You now have no right to keep the police out of your homes.

I would expect something like this out of Chicago or Illinois, but not our neighbor to the east. If this issue gets brought to the U.S. Supreme Court it will be stricken down.

I read the article, I think you all are blowing it a little out of proportion. They are not green lighting random police searches or creating a nanny state. I am not saying a agree or disagree with it, but let's keep things in perspective.

Default Court: No right to resist illegal cop entry into home

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.

This is the second major Indiana Supreme Court ruling this week involving police entry into a home.
On Tuesday, the court said police serving a warrant may enter a home without knocking if officers decide circumstances justify it. Prior to that ruling, police serving a warrant would have to obtain a judge's permission to enter without knocking.

It doesn't get much more pathetic than that. Welcome to North Korea.

Why are people shocked by this ruling? Judges are rich, I'm pretty sure they all make over six-figures in Indiana. If they aren't rich, they either had a ton of kids or can't spend their money wisely. Anyway, some, not all, of those in the higher socio-economic ladder don't see their ruling as an issue. Their ruling was basically: Bend over and let the state have their way with you, deal with the wrongful treatment, then sue. Very easy to say for folks making good money, not so easy for someone making $30K/year who can barely afford an attorney.

The state wants things to be ran in a orderly fashion. Interfering with government operations is never a good idea. Today's mentality is that government must be involved in people's lives at all levels to varying degrees. This ruling isn't really that shocking when you consider that fact.

The SCOTUS has said otherwise (see John Bad Elk case, etc.).

The Indiana supreme court is obviously full of statists.

Well i understand the need to reverse the law if your serving a warrant. But there is no need for cops to but into my home if i am not housing anyone that did an unlawful thing or i didn't do anything illegal.

if the SCOTUS can find in favor of the Westboro Baptist Church, I see them upholding this case as well ... I mean hey ... They even gave corporations peoplehood status ...

Sigh ... Indiana is quite hot right now eh? literally and figuratively.

I have been considering moving out of state. I think this sealed the deal. I have mixed feelings about it. While I would like to see this go the SCOTUS, like domergurl, I think they just might uphold it.
