|User Info||Indiana Sets A Model For All States; entered at 2012-06-06 09:44:23|
Here is a quote from Atmartin's link:|
However, legislative and judicial thinking has changed significantly in recent years, the Indiana Supreme Court majority pointed out in its 3-2 decision. The Model Penal Code has now eliminated the right because “alternate remedies,” including civil suit, now exist for an “aggrieved” party and because forceful resistance is “likely to result in greater injury.” A “majority of states have abolished the right” to resist via statutes and judicial opinions, the Court stated.
Get a load of that first sentence. While governmental 'thinking' has changed it seems that the people's thinking has not changed...
P.S. A LEO friend of mine was killed in a traffic accident a few years ago, he was speeding while responding to a fellow officers call for help. It was raining lightly and he hit some water and hydroplaned and got hit by an oncoming large SUV and was killed. Why was the other officer calling for help? He found some drugs during a traffic stop and the people who were losing their drugs and freedom were unhappy about it.
