They can't do it.The sources he is using are not right.
INDIANAPOLIS | A Northwest Indiana state senator troubled by an Indiana Supreme Court ruling that Hoosiers have no right to resist illegal police entry into their homes will support legislation that effectively could overturn the decision.
At the same time, a Statehouse rally is planned for next week, and petitions are being circulated to register opposition to the outcome in Barnes v. State.
State Sen. Ed Charbonneau, R-Valparaiso, said he will work with state Sen. Mike Young, R-Indianapolis, to craft legislation in 2012 clarifying Indiana's self-defense law to explicitly permit Hoosiers to resist illegal entry by a police officer.
"While times change, our rights protected in the (U.S.) Constitution do not," Charbonneau said. "Americans must live freely without fear of unwarranted intrusion by an oppressive government."
In a 3-2 decision written by Justice Steven David, appointed in 2010 by Republican Gov. Mitch Daniels, the state's high court said "modern Fourth Amendment jurisprudence" makes the common law right to resist unnecessary because civil remedies are available through the courts.
"Allowing resistance unnecessarily escalates the level of violence and therefore the risk of injuries to all parties involved without preventing the arrest," David said.
But Young believes essentially scrapping Fourth Amendment protections against illegal search and seizure sets a dangerous precedent.
"When someone enters your home illegally at 3 a.m., your first thought is not what court will have jurisdiction, but, rather, what do I need to do to protect my family?" Young said.
A western Indiana school district wants to give its bus drivers the authority to search students for weapons or drugs.
The Tribune-Star reported that a Vigo County School Corp. proposal would allow the drivers to search a student and the student's belongings if there is an immediate threat of harm or danger to those on the bus.
Ray Azar, director of student services, said the Terre Haute-based district wants its drivers to have the authority to conduct searches in case they are on the road and must immediately respond to an emergency situation. That would include scenarios where a student might be in possession of a dangerous drug or a weapon.
Drivers would have to first get permission from the transportation office and/or student services.

I think what people in Indiana could do is call cops on the houses of the Indiana supreme court judges and see how they like being invaded during the night by cops without warrants.
That would be quite epic.
And appropriate, karmic, funny, hopefully lethal, hopefully at least traumatic, and hopefully the spark that causes them to reverse this stupid, Nazi like decision!
"EXTREMELY DEADLY WARNING:
This property is protected by extremely deadly devices of all kinds and hidden to protect this property owner against illegal violent entry by law enforcement. Freedom from illegal search and seizure rights are granted to me by the US Constitution in the 4th Amendment, and were illegally overruled by three Nazi Judges. DO NOT ENTER, AND DO NOT TRESSPASS OR YOU WILL VERY LIKELY BE KILLED OR SEVERELY INJURED BY THESE DEVICES AND TRAPS. TURN BACK NOW OR DIE."
"PS. And oh, if you have a warrant, please ring the buzzer and show it to the camera you see directly above your head. Yes, we can zoom in. Thank you and have a nice day."
Dude, I would ease up on the whole "Citzens Assasination Team" talk.
