Indiana's Senate Bill 1
There has been a lot of publicity about the new law concerning citizens protecting themselves and their property. Basically the law states that a person has a right to protect themselves in their residence from physical harm, and they do not have to retreat.
Fortunately in Warrick County most of the citizens respect Law Enforcement Officers, and the Law Enforcement Officers respect the citizens Constitutional Rights.
That being said, the law has not changed when it comes to Resisting Law Enforcement. Every citizen should educate themselves concerning the law, as ignorance of the law is no excuse. The Criminal Laws of the State of Indiana can be found by visiting the Secretary of States website or by visiting the State of Indiana website IN.GOV.
