Don’t look now, but the basic relationship between the individual and the government is quickly being redefined — and not for the better:
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.
“We believe … a right to resist an unlawful police entry into a home is against public policy and is incompatible with modern Fourth Amendment jurisprudence,” David said. “We also find that allowing resistance unnecessarily escalates the level of violence and therefore the risk of injuries to all parties involved without preventing the arrest.”
David said a person arrested following an unlawful entry by police still can be released on bail and has plenty of opportunities to protest the illegal entry through the court system.
Yeah, those old Western European traditions are passé in an empire, where all cultures (except one) are equal. The tradition under English common law that recognized the right of a man to defend his castle just won’t do in a multicult regime. Back then, if the King’s men act illegally, a citizen had the right to resist — it was a type of nullification over illegal acts, another right the ruling elites wish to eradicate.
Instead, we’re supposed to submit to a central government that claims all power, all sovereignty. Re-read that last paragraph in the above quote. It states that the Empire’s subjects are not to worry about the abuse of government power, because they can rely on — yes, the government — to make sure everything’s all right. Feel better?
I prefer this view of the matter:
“The poorest man may in his cottage bid defiance to all the force of the Crown. It may be frail; its roof may shake; the wind may blow through it; the storms may enter, the rain may enter, but the King of England cannot enter.”
But as the Anglo-Celtic majority does away with itself, expect the legal and political traditions that it nourished to fade away with it.
