Right to Resist passes Indiana Senate, moves to Governor Daniels desk

Published On March 13, 2012 | By Edmond Dantes | Articles

38-12, that’s not a 1st half score update of a 1/16 NCAA Tournament game, that’s the vote tally for Senate Bill 1 in the Indiana General Assembly, better known as the Right to Resist Bill. The bill passed the Senate Friday and now moves to the desk of Governor Mitch Daniels.

Rep. Linda Lawson, a former police officer, fought hard to stop this bill but failed to prevent our right to use self defense against public servants. If you ask police officers this is a terrible law, they are predicting mass murder against cops here in Indiana and I can’t wait till we prove them wrong.

As much as I dislike politicians, I have a new found love for State Rep. Jud McMillan.

State Rep. Jud McMillin, R-Brookville, said the high court’s decision went too far. He said people must respect police who properly carry out their duties, but should be allowed to defend themselves if police cross the line.

“Everybody should have the right to resist anything that’s unlawful from anybody,” McMillin said.

I have no qualm with cops stopping actual criminals, but alot of police actions these days are against people who have committed no criminal action against another person and therefore the actions of the police are illegal. It should frighten any rationale person that the police want to meet no resistance in what they do.

If you think this is scary, you should read what cops across the country are saying about this.  

I just have one question to ask, if you are afraid of people killing cops at will without accountability, perhaps you will finally see why so many people have lost respect for the police in this country. You’re afraid of people acting like cops, because they kill all the time. We are 8 times more likely to be killed by a cop than a terrorist.

I for one do not live in a fantasy land where cops don’t go after people who have done nothing wrong. I live in the real world where a student can be arrested for burping in class, or writing on their desk. Arrested for dancing? It happens in the real world. Ever paid a bill in pennies? That’s an arrestable offense as well.

You see where I am going with this. However, despite my belief that people will still meet legal troubles for resisting a police officer, I am really hoping this is signed into law by Governor Daniels, if only to show the police that their “bloodbath” predictions are completely misfounded.

And for those cops whining about this and how they are disrespected overall and people are no longer just bending over to get buttfucked willingly, you remind me of something…THIS!

    The decision is poorly written. For the most part, nothing will happen except that one 911 call, probably after a NASCAR weekend. Some drunk will be pounding the dog shit out of his ex-girlfriend. Someone will call 911 and the cops will come to the driveway and stop.

    He’s the property owner and tells the police they can’t ‘trespass’ cause ‘ain’t nothing wrong’ and ‘I’s shoots tresspassers…” and she, being the ‘ex’ can’t give permission since it’s not her property.

    The cops will sit and wait a few hours while a search warrant is written…atleast it will give her time to search for that incisor.

    There will be no ‘cop bloodbaths’ it will be the citizens who lie there and bleed. Or the cops will even make people give ‘consent’ on the 911 line or come out to the road to make their complaints. For the most part, nothing will happen, but you know there is some redneck snaggle tooth fuck that will be just a waiting.

    “Pounding the crap out of his ex GF” isn’t a felony in progress? Nice strawman, about what I have come to expect from the cops and their supporters.

    By the way, nice ethnic slurs you throw around. Do you use them against other groups or just poor whites?

  • Chris Mallory

    That the LEO establishment in Indiana is against this bill is all honest men should need to support it.
    End no knock searches and kicking the door in 3 seconds after you knock and this ceases to be an issue.
    Send a couple officers in dress uniforms to knock on the door and be let in and this ceases to be an issue.
    “OH NO, TEH DRUGZ WILL BE FLUSHED!!!1!!!1!!” Well, isn’t that the whole point of the warrant? To get the drugs off the street? They are gone, destroyed, mission accomplished. But then the “Justice” industry doesn’t get to process another couple citizens into slaves.

    One of the cops on one of the police sites was recounting how at least 30% of the time his searches were illegal. He didn’t think a citizen should be able to oppose his illegal actions. After all, they are just citizens, not badge wearing centurions.

    Hey Common Sense, don’t use that name if you don’t have any. If someone calls 911 and reports an assault in progress, do you really think their entering of the house without a warrant will be deemed illegal?

    And thanks for the stereotype of all people in Indiana, it couldn’t be further from the truth

    I think it’s horrible. I’ve seen a lot of criminals who don’t think they had done anything wrong when they actually did so they resist. If they think they are being unlawfully detained they can fight back. It escalates. The person resists, the cop raises their level of force, more resistance until someone is dead. Where does it stop?

    It’s not the point. The point is to arrest the person who breaks the law. Put them on trial and if found guilty they are penalized for breaking the law. You don’t leave it open with no repercussions. There would be no punishment and no reason for people to obey the law. There is crime and punishment. You are punished so you think twice before doing it again. If you do now you have a prior which can make your jail/prison stay longer. If you do it again, you stay longer.

    if the shoe fits….cooter ha ha ha…

    The decision was poorly written by someone like Sand, but in the end, nothing will happen, all hype….

  • Chris Mallory

    Just like a cop. Throw around a few insults and not respond to any of the valid points.

  • The_Lakewood_4_are_burning_in_Hell

    Mike J,

    It stops when cops are actually held to account. Not paid vacation and hush money paid with no admission of wrongdoing. If a few cops die while jack booting around, maybe they will consider other options.

    Google Patricia Cook Culpeper. It stops when that stops. Not before.

  • The_Lakewood_4_are_burning_in_Hell

    Or the marine executed by the deputy in California. Or the homeless man beaten to death in Fullerton. Or the woodcarver gunned down in Seattle. Or the girl tased and left for brain dead. Or the Marine shot down by the Pima County SWAT team.

    Their blood cries out for vengeance. Let it start in Indiana.

    We understand that’s how the system works, but what evidence do you have that it’s effective at serving the people’s best interests?

    @nocommonsense: There will be no ‘cop bloodbaths’ it will be the citizens who lie there and bleed. Or the cops will even make people give ‘consent’ on the 911 line or come out to the road to make their complaints.

    I hope it comes to the point that I have to give consent for cops to come to my house. NO CONSENT, YOU SHOW UP, YOU’RE TRESPASSING, YOU POINT YOUR FINGER AT ME AND I CAN PLAY COP: ‘I WAS AFRAID FOR MY LIFE AND IT LOOKED LIKE A GUN” NOW, WHEN THREATENED, I HAVE THE RIGHT TO BLOW YOUR LYING ASS OUT OF MY YARD.

    @CHRIS MALLORY. You hit the nail right on the head. They can’t have drugs flushed down the toilet. You know how big of a dent this causes in their income?? Heaven somebody besides cops have access to selling dope..

    Shit is going to fly if a cop get’s shot and the homeowner uses the “I believed” he didn’t have the right to be in here line. That’s my biggest hang-up over the law. The wording is so vague, it leaves the legalitly of what a cop is doing up to the beliefs of the homeowner. As we’ve seen on this site, opinions vary greatly!! I’m pretty sure that there are some people out there who think the police should be sniped as soon as they step onto the sidewalk.

  • The_Lakewood_4_are_burning_in_Hell

    Not yet.

  • Chris Mallory

    PSOSGT, Why shouldn’t the citizens be held to the same standards as the cops? After all “He reached for his waistband.”, “I felt endangered.” and “He has something black, shiny, small, large, or medium sized in his hand” are all valid excuses when the cop shoots a citizen. Armed men kicking in my door is enough to make me feel fear for my life, I should be able to defend myself.

  • Chris Mallory

    Mikey J,

    Malum prohibitum laws are not crimes in anyone’s mind except the cop’s and the “justice” industry’s.

    “If you do now you have a prior which can make your jail/prison stay longer. If you do it again, you stay longer.”

    Like I said, slaves down on the plantation. That prison stay and longer sentence next time provide a lot of overtime for your badge wearing friends.

  • PSOSGT

    Chris, this goes beyond a cop or anyone justifying the use of force. A home owner simply has to believe the cops are there illegally. There is no requirement for the fear of thier safety. Take a “soverign citizen” who believe th gov’t has no right AT ALL for anything.. based on that belief alone, according to my understanding, they can shoot a police with a valid search warrant who is knocking on thier front door.

    the corrupted, evil system the cops protect has stolen our country and nullified our votes. If you have enough brains to click a link, do it and watch the evidence paid out so even a junior high school kid can see what they have done, are doing and will do;

    All you cops that run interference can pat yourselves on the back for a job well-done.

    This pretty much says it all;

    So I guess treasonous swine moniker goes up the ladder beyond the sycophants-in-blue right to our officers of the court. A nation brought down by the banks, their “Renfield Class” in D.C. and the traitors in blue. Amazing what some will do justify for a paycheck.
