I saw the original story here http://thefreethoughtproject.com/state-passes-law-legalize-self-defense-police/
The law supports many of the previous holdings from other Courts regarding self-defense against unlawful arrest, as posted here http://marcmkkoy.net/law/analysis-and-interpretation/item/125-your-right-of-defense-against-unlawful-arrest.html
As if we need the State to validate one’s natural right to self-defense. The story is a bit uplifting in that the fortified foundation of the blue-clad-brotherhood has experienced a crack.
Finally some rational legislation is passed concerning ‘public servants’ unlawfully entering another person’s property.
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. Indiana is leading the way by recognizing this right and creating legislation to protect it.
Of course cops have already begun to fear monger the passage of this bill, “If I pull over a car and I walk up to it and the guy shoots me, he’s going to say, ‘Well, he was trying to illegally enter my property,’ ” said Joseph Hubbard, 40, president of Jeffersonville Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 100. “Somebody is going get away with killing a cop because of this law.”
Instead of looking at the beneficial aspect of this law, which creates the incentive for police to act responsibly and just, Hubbard takes the ‘higher than thou’ attitude and is simply worried about himself.
How about questioning the immoral laws that you are enforcing in the first place? Or how about sympathizing with the innocent people whose pets and family members have been slain, due to police negligence?
Who’s to say that a cop pulling you over to extort money from you for the victimless crime of not wearing a seatbelt, isn’t an unlawful act? Or how about breaking down your door in the middle of the night to kidnap you and throw you in a cage for possessing a plant?
Hopefully this legislation will lead to these arbitrary traffic and drug enforcement “laws” in place solely for revenue collection (aka theft), being brought into question.
(i) A person is justified in using reasonable force against a public servant if the person reasonably believes the force is necessary to:
(1) protect the person or a third person from what the person reasonably believes to be the imminent use of unlawful force;
(2) prevent or terminate the public servant’s unlawful entry of or attack on the person’s dwelling, curtilage, or occupied motor vehicle; or
(3) prevent or terminate the public servant’s unlawful trespass on or criminal interference with property lawfully in the person’s possession, lawfully in possession of a member of the person’s immediate family, or belonging to a person whose property the person has authority to protect.
It is through legislation such as this, which will empower people again and aid in bringing down these tyrants from their pedestals, who are given free rein to murder and pillage without consequence.
With all the information about how police routinely abuse and even kill people with little consequence, there are many who will still preface any comments with, “I’m not anti-cop,…” Well, someone has to say it, and I am anti-cop. The media bombards us with headlines about law enforcement banding together with assault weapons and vehicle searches when “one of their own” is assaulted or killed, like they stand apart from the rest of society. Truth be told, they do stand apart.
The police have no duty to protect anyone, yet, people romanticize over the “serve and protect” motto that never had any foundation in legal responsibility to the individual. The value of police officers is elevated above that of the common man because they “wear the blue” and protect us. I could post article after article about the abuse caused by police, but that would be redundant and possibly cause a brown-out on the Internet because the information is so profuse.
Every time someone is injured by the police, the police will justify their actions by citing, “The officer was in fear for his safety.” I’ll posit that officers live in a perpetual state of contrived fear to justify their next transgression. I believe the institution courts and promotes sociopathic behavior, nurtures a culture of violence and divisiveness, and dehumanizes individuals by endearing them to a persona of being the only ones imbued with the moral legitimacy to judge the character and worthiness of others.
There are good men and women serving within a corrupt and failed institution, then there are vile misanthropes swarming within the protective environment provided by the State in exchange for their proxy by instilling shock and awe throughout the masses. As I choose to judge individuals on their personal behavior, I impugn the institution of “Law Enforcement” and present-day police as being a blight and cancer on society.
The naysayers and sycophants will rally around the police and find ways to justify their actions towards undesirables in society as somehow deserving their treatment, but there is no justification for how grown men and women hiding behind badges treat children. I’m using the following story as a case-in-point to illustrate the growing trend of an ever-growing attitude that no one is above police abuse. This is psychological operation to reinforce that almost every action carries a potential police-consequence.
What is the answer? Do we engage them with respect, or disdain? I say we engage them first as individuals, and then, if they resort to the persona of law enforcement officer, we express our displeasure and quietly ostracize them from general society. They either live in isolation with their violent, corrupt brethren, or hopefully realize they are a part of a moral and societal cancer whose time has come to be cured.
When did cops become so cowardly and pathetic?

Police in Milledgeville, Georgia handcuffed and charged a 6-year-old girl with assault for throwing a tantrum in school but instead of apologizing for such unnecessary treatment, the chief of police praised his officers for their actions.
Milledgeville’s acting police chief Dray Swicord praised the actions of the arresting officer for dealing with the deadly threat posed by the girl.
“Our policy is that any detainee transported to our station in a patrol vehicle is to be handcuffed in the back. There is no age discrimination on that rule, Swicord told 13WMAZ.
“A 6-year-old in kindergarten. They don’t have no business calling the police and handcuffing my child, said Earnest Johnson, Salecia’s father.
This is just the latest example in a growing trend of police officers treating young children as dangerous criminals. Zero tolerance has obliterated common sense and the routine arrest of children is another symptom that America is now a police state.
– Back in December a 13-year-old middle school student in Albuquerque, New Mexico was handcuffed and hauled off to juvenile detention for “burping audibly in class.
– In January, 12-year-old Sarah Bustamantes was arrested by police in Austin, Texas for spraying perfume on herself.
– Also in January, cops in Charlton, Massachusetts were dispatched to collect an overdue library book from a 5-year-old girl.
– A 6-year-old San Francisco boy was detained for 2 hours by the principal and forced to confess to “sexual assault for brushing the leg of his friend during a game of tag. The boy was later charged with “sexual battery.
– A similar overreaction ensued when an Orange River Elementary School assistant principal called cops after seeing a girl kiss a boy during PE class, labeling it a possible sex crime.
– In Stockton, California, a 5-year-old boy with ADHD was “handcuffed with zip ties on his hands and feet, forced to go to the hospital for a psychiatric evaluation and was charged with battery on a police officer, after the cop claimed the boy had kicked him in the knee.
– In Florida, 6-year-old girl weighing 40 pounds was handcuffed and then sent to a mental health facility for screaming and throwing objects in class.
These are just a handful of the cases that have occurred recently and there are probably scores more that don’t even get reported by the media.
How on earth can we expect police officers to deal with real crime and actual dangerous criminals when a significant number of them seem to be intimidated by children who throw temper tantrums?
When did cops become so pathetic?
While the federal government is training law enforcement that Americans who express grievances against the state or who are engaged in political activists represent a threat akin to terrorists, cops are presumably becoming so terrified by this prospect that they are even treating little kids as violent criminals.
The fact that elementary school children are being arrested for misbehaving or being charged with sexual assault for overenthusiastic games of tag serves as another urgent warning that both law enforcement and the school system in America are rotten to the core and run by complete morons who have dispensed with all semblance of common sense.

Florida Highway Cop Dan Cole “Justified” in Tasering Danielle Maudsley In The Back
I can’t say enough about this piece of filth. Tasering a young woman in the back for a non-violent offense when she is fleeing in handcuffs. Police always resort to the argument they were “fearful” or protecting “the public”. I’ll keep my innermost feelings about this to myself so as not to give the State ammunition for a claim of “premeditation”.
