"A little-noticed Indiana Supreme Court decision late last week overturned long-standing precedent and stripped citizens of the right to resist unlawful police entry to their homes, in a move dissenting justices called 'breathtaking' and 'unnecessarily broad.' The ruling, which came on the appeal of a case in which police subdued a man who refused to allow them entry to an apartment following a report of domestic violence, strikes to the heart of the Constitution's Fourth Amendment, which protects citizens from unlawful search and seizure." [editor's note: I dunno, you think this might get to SCOTUS soon? - SAT] (05/16/11)
