This is a BIG deal. Not just for Indiana residents. I predict a rash of such rulings around the country so be warned. The police in Indiana are going to abuse this immediately because they will fear that it may get overturned. Let me give you a scenario. An adult citizen is in his home lawfully consuming alcohol and the police enter his home with out a knock and order that person to step outside for questioning. If he complies he will be arrested for public intoxication which is illegal. If he resists it will be resisting arrest which is also illegal. So this ruling allows the police to legally put a person in a catch 22 where they can not avoid arrest. Your home is essentially public property to the police. 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. So they can get you in to the legal system and you basically can't do anything to stop it. Perhaps they will just walk in to count your guns and check your permits, or check to see if you are recycling. Maybe they want to see if you are feeding your children properly. Perhaps they just want to search for stolen merchandise or drugs even though they have no suspicion. The ruling states that: but if I understand it correctly you wont have access to much of that if you are charged with the Patriot Act. This is pre Magna Carta lawlessness sanctioned by a state supreme court and this modern jurisprudence, new world order tyranny could be coming to a state near you so be warned.
