Re: Bull Crap ! ! !
OK, I live in Indiana, and the facts are right as much as they are over hyped. The problem evolved out of a domestic issue between a husband and wife. They got into it in their front yard, and somebody (third party) called the cops. During which time the two calmed down and made up. Cops showed up at the door, and the husband answered. He would not allow entry for them to check on his wife (standard procedure). They cuffed him with a struggle, and went inside. All was well. They hauled the husband downtown for resisting law enforcement. Both side were wrong. If his wife had of came to the door behind her husband all would have been OK, but they still had to make sure she was OK. By the way they have been serving no knock warrants for years all over the USA incase you didn't know this!
Now the case was appealed and knocked down by a judge. This has caused all kinds of an outcry around here. Looks like it will goto the Supreme Court assuming they'll even take the case. In the meantime a bill is in the Legislature to ammend this issue making it illeagle to enter without a warrant. I see it being ammended as there may not be time with a domestic disturbance. Look for every cop to carry a generic domestic disturbance entry warrant in the future. Thus leaving out everything else.
