Indiana: Police can now enter your home whenever they want

What. The. Fuck.
INDIANAPOLIS | 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.

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.
Seriously, were my family's votes the only thing keeping this state from going totally insane? Did three liberal people moving plunge the state into complete madness? Aaauuuggghhhhh!!

If that article isn't upsetting enough to you, you should check out Feministe's summary of the effects of Indiana's new abortion laws and defunding of Planned Parenthood.

You're welcome.

    Is this true? I think this only apply if martial law is in effect or there there is a state of war. This cannot be done during peacetime.
