Steven David

Protest Rally Report — Justice Steven David at the Columbia City Rotary Club

We gathered at the intersection of U. S. Highway 30 and Indiana 205 at about 11:30 AM today.  We had about 10 people show up and hold signs and wave at traffic.  The weather was horrible…rain and 30 MPH wind gusts.  Freedom is not a fair-weather enterprise.

We watched as the Rotarians attending the meeting drove past us to get to the Eagle’s Nest Event Center.  Some people honked and gave ‘thumbs up’ in support of our effort to prevent Justice Steven David from winning a retention vote in November 2012.

We were invited by a private property owner across the street from the Eagle’s Nest to set up a banner and flag in his yard.  He also put a large sign on his garage door — “When people fear government, there is tyranny”.

We were also visited by local media… The Columbia City Post & Mail, Talk of the Town Whitley County, and Indiana’s News Center came to see what we were doing.

We can only hope that our message about Justice David was able to reach a wider audience due to the protest rally.

Whitley County Patriots to Protest Justice Steven David in Columbia City — LATEST UPDATE

LATEST UPDATE — Parkview Health has forced the Columbia City Rotary to relocate this meeting!  Meeting is now at the Eagle’s Nest Event Center…see below for details.

Justice Steven David of the Indiana Supreme Court ruled in the case Barnes v. State of Indiana that a homeowner does NOT have the right to resist UNLAWFUL police entry.  Please see the following information on our website:
http://www.whitleycountypatriots.org/tag/4th-amendment/

He also ruled on a case in Ogden Dunes that a homeowner does not have a right to RENT his/her property if it’s in a single-family residence zoning area.

We do not appreciate Justice David’s opinions on 4th Amendment issues and private property rights.  We intend to let him (and the rest of the Rotary attendees) know our opinion.  We will also be inviting the media.

We have learned that Justice David may be considered for Chief Justice once Randall Shepard retires. We believe this would further restrict the freedoms enjoyed by Indiana’s citizens.  We will be campaigning for the NON-retention of Justice David in the upcoming November election.

For an excellent write-up on the issues surrounding Justice Steven H. David, read Jennifer Zartman Romano’s article on Talk of the Town Whitley County.

I would like to invite all area TEA Party/9-12 groups to come march with us. Bring your signs, but please keep it civil.

Protest Rally Details:

Parking will be along County Road 150E, just north of US 30 on SR 205, turn left onto CR 150E.

The protest rally will be at the northeast corner of U.S. Highway 30 and State Road 205, beginning at 11:30 AM.  We expect to conclude by 12:30 PM.

Please observe and stay within the public right-of-way for the highways…see the image below.

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.

From the New Albany News and Tribune:

BY MAUREEN HAYDEN CNHI

INDIANAPOLIS — Indiana Supreme Court Justice Steven David may have given legal observers a clue to his judicial philosophy when he was sworn in a year ago.

He’d been described by Republican Gov. Mitch Daniels, who appointed him, as a conservative unlikely to overturn legal applecarts.

But in his post-swearing-in speech, David said his loyalty to “the rule of law” would trump partisanship, politics and public pressure.

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.
