And every cop in Indiana just went "Uh-oh"

Police officers in Indiana are upset over a new law allowing residents to use deadly force against public servants, including law enforcement officers, who unlawfully enter their homes. It was signed by Republican Governor Mitch Daniels in March.
The first of its kind in the United States, the law was adopted after the state Supreme Court went too far in one of its rulings last year, according to supporters. The case in question involved a man who assaulted an officer during a domestic violence call. The court ruled that there was “no right to reasonably resist unlawful entry by police officers.”

And that fucking blowhard Texas Fred is probably shitting all over himself about this, that one of his masters may not be around to throw him a bone after breaking into somebody's home.
