Indiana legalizes shooting cops
Indiana legalizes shooting cops — RT
Under the latest changes of the so-called Castle Doctrine, state lawmakers agree “people have a right to defend themselves and third parties from physical harm and crime.” Rather than excluding officers of the law, however, any public servant is now subject to be met with deadly force if they unlawfully enter private property without clear justification.
“In enacting this section, the general assembly finds and declares that it is the policy of this state to recognize the unique character of a citizen's home and to ensure that a citizen feels secure in his or her own home against unlawful intrusion by another individual or a public servant,” reads the legislation.

Sounds like a dicey proposition.
The better solution is to actually make police officers accountable for their actions. Currently they are given too much leeway under the idea that doing otherwise would negatively impact their ability to do their jobs. Indiana is attempting to control a symptom, not actually tackle the problem.Good job, friend-of-friends!

This solves both problems. Police will be forced to improve their legal proceedures to insure they only break into houses they are allowed to. It also gives the public recourse for illegal acts of the government.
Of course there is the (I have no idea) how you execute a raid on a drug den in such a way as to not legally receive fire from inside the house you are breaking into.
you cant serve the warrant without first alerting occupants, but you need surprise to raid a house...

The point of law is to provide equal justice to everyone. This law would only help gun owners. So it doesn't solve anything, IMO. It will only add to bodycounts and make a police officer's job that much more dangerous.
The correct solution is to fix it top-down. Adding recourse for civilians to blow away officers of the law is not a solution at all. It only adds chaos. It's stupid, and god forbid someone "misapplies" it. I wouldn't want to explain that to some hard working officer's wife.Good job, friend-of-friends!

So all those states that have applied "Castle laws" and "Stand your ground laws" are just amassing piles of dead bodies, right, Tony? They're just being mowed down in neighborhoods across the nation for simply walking down the street.

They come to my house and break in...MISTAKENLY and shoot Cody who was just trying to be friendly.
He doesn't have a harmful bone in his body. Then, I waste the Cops. I may have the right, but I've lost my Best Friend.
Law Enforcement NEEDS to have they're shit together before they act. This just might give them the impetus to think before they go headlong into a confrontation that should never have to happen. That's why WE"RE paying them !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iE9TN...eature=related
The Nation which forgets it's defenders will itself be forgotten
