Law enables homeowner to legally shoot law enforcement who unlawfully enter home
Tyler — In Indiana, police officers are upset over a new law allowing residents to use deadly force against public servants, including law enforcement officers, who unlawfully enter their homes.
The law was signed by Republican Governor Mitch Daniels in March. The law was adopted after the Indiana State Supreme Court ruled that there was "no right to reasonably resist unlawful entry by police officers," after a man assaulted an officer during a domestic violence call.
