'Right to Resist': Ind. Deputies Must Serve Warrants In Uniform

April 02, 2012  | 

Marion County (Ind.) Sheriff's deputies once allowed to serve criminal or civil warrants in plainclothes must now wear their uniforms after the passage of the Right to Resist law.

The change in wardrobe gives deputies higher visibility and reduces the risk that a homeowner would mistake the officer's identity, Maj. Reggie Roney told the Indy Channel.

Gov. Daniels, if this was such as great law to "protect law enforcement" why is this new policy now needed in Metro- Indianapolis???

What difference does this make? I thought the law gave them the 'right' no matter what. What idiots and to think I usually towed the republican line.

no more to say daniels is a joke for a gov. and our legislators arent much better people. Lets vote these wana be presidents out of office before they pass a law where police only need a W.T. to go on patrol. I live in Indiana and i look forward to the next election for my house representative because when he comes to my City wanting my vote i'm gona call his azz out on the carpet in front of everyone!! The next election we need to show Indiana how strong the blue line can be in our home state. Look on the Indiana house of representatives web site and see if your representative voted for this "B.S." If they did, return the favor to them because one thing a politician doesnt like is to bring up how idiotic they voted while in office. Net look up info: 03-01-12, meeting day 32, roll call 312, sb1,passed 74 yeas to 24 nays and 2 with no cahonas to vote.

Stay Safe brothers and sisters because no one wants to help us but "US"..

I am a reserve deputy (over14 years) and I am a Correctional Officer (over 17 years). I do not understand why any Peace Officer would object to a citizen resisting an Obviously Illegal use of force or authority by any LEO. We all know that there are times when a fellow officer deliberatly goes beyond the proper limits of his authority. And we should restrain any officer that does.
We who enforce the law are not above the law! We should also know and understand the law and the rights that evey citizen has.
Our political leaders tell us tha ignorance of the law is no excuse. We must understand that this also Applies To Us.

PS: When did we quit being Peace Officers and become Law Enforcement Officers (LEO's)Read Bureacrats!
