Default Indiana codifies shooting LEO's who commit unlawful entry

AllGov - News - Indiana First State to Allow Citizens to Shoot Law Enforcement Officers

New Indiana Law Allows Citizens to Shoot Police Officers

Indiana First State to Allow Citizens to ‘Shoot Law Enforcement Officers’ Alex Jones' Infowars: There's a war on for your mind!

So far it hasn't been picked up by any mainstream syndicates that I've seen.

Maybe they need to go back to the way they did things in the "old days" and identify themselves as the police.
Like the majority of the TSA robot douche bags hired by our government, many police carry a badge because of the ego boost and power trip it gives them. I live in Indiana and used to know a number of small town clowns (cops) that were the same guys that got made fun of in school. I'm certainly not saying they are all bad, but like any job, there is a certain percentage of them that will abuse their power for the wrong reasons and if necessary, the public should be able to defend themselves if necessary.

One guy (cop) I knew dated the roommate of my girlfriend and couldn't fight his way out of anything. When I asked him why he wanted to be a cop, all he could come up with was something like how cool it was to carry a gun.

Another douche used to ghost clock signs with his radar gun, then pull people over to write them a ticket. If they argued, he would show them the gun.

This is the first I've heard of the law, but it doesn't bother me.

This.

I go back and forth between the increasing militarization of cops and the social conservative movement for what is the most alarming threat against American liberties.

We had a case here not long ago about the cops kicking in the wrong door and tossing flashbangs right where a baby had been sleeping about 1/2 an hour before they showed up. Now something like this law would never fly in Canada but I can see why it would be needed.
