I guess Mitch Daniels took Mitt Romney's call for eliminating the number of police officers seriously and found a free market solution.

BronyMedic: Guntram Shatterhand: Maybe we should stop funding police militarization. Seriously, what point is there to invading a home at night? Most cops will go on about how dangerous this threat to our freedoms really is, but how is that worse than power-hungry assholes playing soldier on our dime?

Please tell me how the police have access to Military equipment you can't purchase as a civilian, again?

And, please don't say because they carry M-4s or MP-5s on patrol. Because I can go down the street to the gunshop and buy one with a tax stamp.


totally. i was just on my way to the dealership for one of these babies:
absentofi.org

or maybe
reason.com

ya, those fellows don't look at all like military. just like officer friendly and his pals.

It's about goddamned time. Maybe this will help police stop overreaching their bounds.

And apparently the NRA got behind this idea and pushed really hard. Maybe now I can stop being ashamed to like Charlton Heston movies.

I want to see the Kentucky legislature pass a law like this. This and stand your ground.

So far we don't even have the castle doctrine here. It's like "The was a window behind you you could have jumped from so you didn't have to shoot the armed bath-salted intruder; that the window is five stories up and you're paraplegic in a wheelchair only meant you should have called on Jesus to give you strength."

jabelar: Silly Jesus: Here's the only problem with this. How does the person in the home determine whether or not the police action is legal before they decide to start shooting at them?

It's not about whether the police action is legal, its about whether you even know they are police. The point is that when someone bursts down your bedroom door wearing a balaclava (the police often wear them), it is reasonable to assume the worst. If they properly declare they are police, then this law wouldn't apply.

This certainly isn't about protecting yourself from "illegal police action", it's about surprise/unexpected armed intruders and whether you wait around to sort things out before defending yourself.


Never mind, after re-reading the article maybe it does allow you to shoot known police if you think they don't have lawful entry ... interesting.

I would support if it was what I thought it was -- i.e. strengthening the need for police to properly identify themselves.

We don't need a law like that in Michigan. Most of us are armed better than the cops, and they know it. It makes for very polite exchanges/warrant servings...most the time anyway.

My take on it is that this is a very basic 2nd amendment issue. You can't keep people from protecting themselves against corrupt (or inept) government actions and/or officials. Figuring out what is and what is not a legal entry is a separate issue, and not having that issue clear is indeed going to make for some ugly situations. But that itself should be powerful incentive to address that issue quickly. Personally, I think no-knock warrants should be reserved solely for situations in which someone's life is known to be in active danger.

I am ok with this. Police should only have the same rights as citizens. If you illegally enter someone's house, you can get shot. Just because you're a police officer does not mean you get a free pass. Yeah, I know. Unicorns are grazing on my lawn and Pegasus brought me into work tonight.

Ken VeryBigLiar: Without context- Indiana has taken the crazy lead from Wisconsin and Michigan

With a bit of context- they're still looking like they're going to place.

/Isn't your legislature full of lawyers like everyone else's?


Actually no. It has some, but we still run a part-time legislature with a single 3 month session. There are a LOT of numbskulls in there who get in off their dad or grandpa's name. We still have township governments (1000 gerrymandered little fiefdoms) working as the farm system to the state assembly, so nepotism and local popularity contests win out in the rural areas. That's how the girl-scout cookie conspiracy guy from last year got in.

I have a lot of issues with people playing judge, jury, and executioner. Specially when they are the ones who escalated the situation. I have problems with people shooting someone in the back and claiming it was self defense under stand your ground. I have problems with people shooting an unharmed person who hadn't even physically assaulted them yet and claim self-defense under stand your ground. I have a problem with people trespassing on someone elses property and then killing the homeowner while claiming self-defense under stand your ground. I have a problem with people stalking and then murdering a young man and claiming self defense under stand your ground.

I have no problem with someone defending their lives against a home invader.



So if I don't call it Stand Your Ground, and just call it shooting people, that still sounds anti-cop to me.
