Government Cannot Be Trusted To Police Itself

So many of the words and warnings delivered by America’s Founding Fathers are appropriate for today. Consider this sage counsel from America’s first and greatest President, George Washington: “Government is not reason; it is not eloquence; it is force! Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master.” I was reminded of these words when I read the following report out of the State of Indiana.

“Overturning a common law dating back to the English Magna Carta of 1215, the Indiana Supreme Court [ISC] ruled Thursday [May 12, 2011] that Hoosiers have no right to resist unlawful police entry into their homes.

“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.”

Justice Robert Rucker and Justice Brent Dickson dissented from the ruling, saying the court’s decision violates the Fourth Amendment of the US Constitution.

And now… the rest of the story. …..

    Re: Indiana 3-2-Supreme Court Decision allowing police without warrants or probable cause to enter private homes.

    “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.”

    Indiana real estate agents should be required to inform their potential buyers of Indiana homes, they will lose their privacy and legal protection against police entering their home without warrants or probable cause, including police breaking down their front door. Requiring Indiana real estate agents to disclosure Indiana’s termination of Fourth Amendment protections would exponentially inform Indiana residents of their Indiana 3-2 Supreme Court Decision and alert residents nationally that other States Supreme Courts might pass similar totalitarian laws.
