Supreme Courts Affirm Police State

The New Indiana!
Supreme Courts Affirm Police State
In Indiana, the Supreme Court ruled 3-2 "that there is no right to reasonably resist unlawful entry by police officers." The U.S. Supreme Court's 8-1 ruling affirmed that officers can kick down a door if they smell marijuana or hear noises indicative of the destruction of evidence. (Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg dissented, writing: "Police officers may now knock, listen, then break the door down, never mind that they had ample time to obtain a warrant.") The fact that the door they kicked in was not the door their suspect had entered was irrelevant to the court.

Think this is an overreaction? Tell it to the citizens of Newton County, Ind., whose sheriff, Don Hartman Sr., told the Mike Church radio show on Thursday that random house-to-house searches are now possible because of the Indiana Supreme Court's ruling.

"He emphatically indicated that he would use random house to house checks, adding he felt people will welcome random searches if it means capturing a criminal," according to Church's website. By Thursday afternoon there was a Facebook page calling for Hartman's removal from office.

Hoosiers lose right to resist unlawful police entry!
