Why do I say this? Why do I make such an outlandish claim? Because of this outrage that I have learned about in Indiana. An outrage against your Constitutional rights-and-the Constitution itself.
Where did I learn of this? From a link posted by a friend on Facebook to HotAir.com
It seems that the Indiana Supreme court has decided that....
"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."
What? an officer can enter my home for "any reason or no reason at all"?!! This is an outrage!! As far as blocking the officers entry that is a mute point. This court has decided that the cops can enter your home for any or no reason WITHOUT a WARRANT. Hell if your not home to block their entry-which this court has decided you can't do anyway-the way I read it they still would have the right to ENTER your home!!!
This is EXACTLY the kind of bulls%$t by government that prompted the framers of the Constitution to put in the fourth amendment to that great document which says ....
“The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”Did you notice the part about "unreasonable" searches?? The framers intended that law enforcement have a "reason" to enter your home,and,that they obtain the permission of a judge to do it!!
It does NOT say that the police can "enter your home for any reason or no reason at all"
You can read more about this at the link to HotAir and the article they linked to bring this outrage to light.
Folks it is incumbent upon all of us to get informed about this anti-constitutional bull and speak out as loudly as we can against it after all the only thing necessary for evil-and this is evil-to triumph is for good men-and women-to do nothing.
If you blog I encourage you to blog about this-let your voice be heard-don't let this go without challenge!!
