So now it's the assertion of the body, people can intervene in police actions if they simply feel unlawful force is being used. How would they know?
Self defense. Specifies that a person may use reasonable force against any other person in certain circumstances. Provides that a person is justified in using reasonable force against a public servant if the person reasonably believes the force is necessary to: (1) protect the person or a third person from unlawful force;
Again how would they know?
(2) prevent or terminate the public servant's unlawful entry into the person's dwelling; or
Even for their stuff? How are normal civilians qualified to judge the necessity of police actions, in the moment, regarding safety, property or force against a 3rd person?
(3) prevent or terminate the public servant's criminal interference with property lawfully in the person's possession.
Oh, so civilians give leave to cops to do their jobs, as long as they have made a snap judgement that it's being done properly? Since when did civilians become IA?
Specifies that a person is not justified in using force against a public servant if: (1) the person is committing or is escaping after the commission of a crime; (2) the person provokes action by the public servant with intent to injure the public servant; (3) the person has entered into combat with the public servant or is the initial aggressor; or (4) the person reasonably believes the public servant is acting lawfully or is engaged in the lawful execution of the public servant's official duties.
Again, how would people know? They should become cops, then they'd be trained to know.
Provides that a person is not justified in using deadly force against a public servant whom the person knows or reasonably should know is a public servant unless: (1) the person reasonably believes that the public servant is acting unlawfully or is not engaged in the execution of the public servant's official duties; and (2) the force is reasonably necessary to prevent serious bodily injury to the person or a third person.
This is highly disturbing. Don't they have IA in Indiana?
