Ind. Courts - More on "Lawmakers to debate illegal entry controversy"
INDIANAPOLIS – A study committee reviewing a controversial court decision that found Hoosiers do not have the right to resist police officers they believe are entering their homes illegally has no direction after its second meeting Wednesday.A brief video accompanying the story gives samples of what various speakers had to say. A plus, the name of each speaker is shown.
Sen. Brent Steele, chairman of the Barnes v. State Subcommittee, said at the end of the meeting that his “crystal ball is not really that clear today.”
“Right now I'm not putting my mind at trying to come up with a legislative fix,” said Steele, R-Bedford. “I just don't know exactly where we are going.”
The four-person committee compromised of Steele, Sen. Tim Lanane, D-Anderson, Rep. Linda Lawson, D-Hammond, and Rep. Eric Turner, R-Cicero, listened to more than two hours of testimony, mostly from Hoosiers opposed to the ruling.
