Oath Keepers Founder, Stewart Rhodes, will be on the Coast to Coast radio show tonight, from 10-11pm Pacific.
Stewart will be discussing the new Indiana law, Senate Act #1, that is intended to restore, by statute, a right to resist unlawful entry by police that had existed for centuries under common law, but was wiped out last year in an Indiana Supreme Court Barnes v. State of Indiana decision. This law is a reaction to that very flawed bit of judicial activism.
HERE IS THE DECISION FROM LAST YEAR:
HERE IS THE TEXT OF THE NEW LAW:
Here is what we at Oath Keepers had to say about the decision last year when it came down:
And then this happened:
According to Newton County Sheriff, Don Hartman Sr., random house to house searches are now possible and could be helpful following the Barnes v. STATE of INDIANA Supreme Court ruling issued on May 12th, 2011. When asked three separate times due to the astounding callousness as it relates to trampling the inherent natural rights of Americans, he emphatically indicated that he would use random house to house checks, adding he felt people will welcome random searches if it means capturing a criminal.
And here is what Frontpagemag.com said last year (a very good article):
And here was Weekly Standard:
Now, it seems that this new Indiana law is meant to merely put the people of Indiana back where they were, and where the common law right of Englishmen and Americans was, for 600 years. Stewart Rhodes is reviewing the new law and will give his thoughts on the show. However, we do think that the ancient common law right made sense and is consistent with the sanctity of the home and the right to bear arms. Otherwise, if a home-owner were to resist what he or she thought was criminal home invasion, and it later turned out to be the police conducting an unlawful entry, that home-owner could be sent to prison just for defending themselves against what they thought was a criminal home invasion. It is a recipe for disaster, ending up in situations like this:
How will you know if the man or men beating down your door are murdering home invaders or police, when they both can just come in as they please, with no concern for the law? The home invading criminals will soon learn that it REALLY pays to dress like cops if people are conditioned to let police enter their homes whenever, and for whatever they want.
And we did hold that rally for the young Marine, because there but for the grace of God go I:
