    It's difficult to comprehend how the top court in IN arrived at the original decision, honestly.

    Let's hope the bill in its final version makes right what has been wrong.

    So the BGs shout "Police!" and wear fake badges to defeat this law's intent, and the poor law-abiding citizen still doesn't know when to shoot or not to shoot. I think a better law is to shift any blame toward the police who can't get the right address, bust down the wrong door, and get shot at by the homeowner who's defending himself against a possible home invasion..

    The General Assembly's Legislative Council unanimously approved a proposal allowing a person to use force under some circumstances to stop the illegal entry of a police officer into a home as long as the person does not know it is a police officer, the officer does not identify himself or herself as police and the officer is not wearing a badge or uniform.
    If it's an illegal entry why is the homeowner restricted an any way at all?
    I also agree with Old Vet. I have told folks for years that if I ever intended to kick a door in to gain entry that I would yell police as loud as I could. It would cause any honest citizen to pause just long enough for me to be able to blow their head off.

    It still does not allow one to use for against a bad cop forcing their way into someones home.. Indiana has had several cases of sexual misconduct by cops since this court case came about..

    Wouldn't it be nice if we lived in a world where commonsense could actually be understood and not legislated!

    I don't care if you "Jesus Christ" loud enough to be heard 100 miles away, if I have done nothing to expect the police, you're catching lead the instant you kick the door.

    The right to use force would not apply ... if the officer has a warrant.
    This does nothing to stop the major problem of a no-knock warrant at the wrong address.
