The bill authorizes the citizenry to use lethal force against unlawful entry. So that means you walk up stairs from your militia basement and find a cop in your living room, you are, by law, allowed to use lethal force.
Police argue that Indiana hasn't been suffering from a rash of unlawful entries by the police and feel that this law now puts a target on their head for any half-drunk yahoo to shoot at.
Right wing libertarians like those over at the "Free Thought Project", however, see it differently:
Finally some rational legislation is passed concerning ‘public servants’ unlawfully entering another person’s property.
All too often, we see examples of cops breaking into the wrong house and shooting the family dog, or worse, killing a member of the family.
Well, Indiana has taken action to “recognize the unique character of a citizen’s home and to ensure that a citizen feels secure in his or her own home against unlawful intrusion by another individual or a public servant.”
This special amendment is no revolutionary new thought, only common sense.
Self-defense is a natural right; when laws are in place that protect incompetent police by removing one’s ability to protect one’s self, simply because the aggressor has a badge and a uniform, this is a human rights violation.
If that sounds batshit crazy, it's because it is.
We now live in a world in which having conservative values means:
1. hero-worshipping Russian leaders2. arguing that some American soldiers should be left behind on the battlefield
3. it is patriotic to rally armed militia around you to prevent you from paying the same fees everyone else has to pay
4. killing cops is a "natural right"
