Indiana Supreme Court Eliminates Fourth Amendment

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2011/05/14


In Indiana, you no longer have Fourth Amendment protections. You no longer have the right to resist unlawful police entry into your home. Bruce McQuain has the story. In a 3-2 decision, the Indiana Supreme Court essentially killed the Fourth Amendment because they didn’t want to escalate violence or somesuch nonsense.

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.

How did Steven David become an Indiana Supreme Court Justice? Possible Republican Presidential hopeful and current Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels appointed him in September of last year.

Two points:
1) This had better be overturned on appeal, and powerfully so.
2) Mitch had better decide to “spend more time with his family” instead of running for Prez. He’s not what we need.

UPDATE:
Doug Powers weighs in with this concluding remark:

So Hoosier Staters can now be arrested and charged with “unlawfully resisting an unlawful entry”? Bizarre.

Bizarre indeed. And 1984. Definitely not Founder and Framer worthy.
