Supreme Court justice says ‘rule of law’ ruled decision in police-entry case

Folks, Justice Steven David ruled in Barnes v. State that you do not have the right to resist UNLAWFUL entry by law enforcement officers  This essentially nullifies the 4th Amendment of the US Constitution, and Article 1, Section 11 of the Indiana Constitution, both regarding the right to be secure in our homes against unlawful search and seizure.  Because we value this right, we are quite upset about this ruling.  Justice David is up for confirmation in 2012…just say NO to any further loss of our freedoms.

The following article is presented to show you how Justice David is being portrayed as a ‘victim’ of an ‘unreasonable reaction’ to his ruling.  We’ve got work to do in order to insure Justice David’s retirement in 2012.

Turns out he had to prove it sooner than he thought. At seven months on the bench, David wrote a court opinion on a police-entry case that irked conservative legislators, triggered Statehouse protests and prompted death threats.
