Indiana Supreme Court Overturns Right Dating Back to Magna Carta

It was a busy weekend. Last night Kathryn and I were in the kitchen and she’s been swamped doing a whole bunch of stuff and she said to me, “What’s the big news this weekend? I haven’t had a chance to pay attention,” and I told her of all the things that happened, there’s one story that really struck me. There’s all kinds of stuff. I don’t mean to put anything here in a very rigid order that says something is without question the biggest story of the weekend, but something is truly big that’s not getting a lot of play and it happened in Indiana. “Overturning a common law dating back to the English Magna Carta of 1215, the Indiana Supreme Court ruled Thursday that Hoosiers have no right to resist unlawful police entry into their homes.” Did you hear about this? It’s as though the Fourth Amendment doesn’t exist. “In a 3-2 decision, Justice Steven David writing for the court said if a police officer wants to enter a home for any reason or no reason at all, a homeowner cannot do anything to block the officer’s entry.”
