For hundreds of years, your home was your castle. In May 2011, that changed!
Justice Steven David wrote the majority opinion in Barnes v. Indiana that reads, Hoosiers have “no right to reasonably resist unlawful entry by police officers” into your homes. This ruling eliminated the common law provision known as the Castle Doctrine –- your right to defend your home.
In September 2011, the case was re-heard. Justice David re-affirmed his earlier ruling that your home is no longer your castle.
This ruling is critical to you and me. Before this ruling, you, your family and your home were primary; government was secondary. Because of Justice David’s ruling, government is now primary at the expense of you and your family.
Justice David comes before Hoosiers on the Nov. 6 ballot. Hoosiers, don't let Justice David strip more freedoms away!
Vote not to retain Justice Steven David.
