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!
