CROWN POINT, Ind. – According to Newton County Sheriff, Don Hartman Sr., random house to house searches are now possible and could be helpful following the Barnes v. STATE of INDIANA Supreme Court ruling issued on May 12th, 2011. When asked three separate times due to the astounding callousness as it relates to trampling the inherent natural rights of Americans, he emphatically indicated that he would use random house to house checks, adding he felt people will welcome random searches if it means capturing a criminal.

Speaking under the condition of anonymity, a local city Police Chief with 30 years experience in law enforcement directly contradicted the Newton County Sheriff’s blatant disregard for privacy & liberty, stating that as an American first, such an action is unconscionable and that his allegiance is to the Indiana and federal Constitutions respectively. However, he also concurred that the ruling does now allow for police to randomly search homes should a department be under order by state or federal officials or under a department’s own accord.

At this time we are still awaiting comments from several state offices.

However, the spokesperson for the INDIANA ATTORNEY GENERAL took umbrage at what he referred to as “large” assumptions regarding police power and at this time has no comment. He did however indicate that should the INDIANA Attorney General, Greg Zoeller feel it necessary to make a statement, that this reporter would be included in the distribution of the release.

This guy is giving sheriffs a bad name. I hope he is roundly criticized by his peers. While he doesn't have to follow "legal" guidelines, he still must follow 'lawful' ones which are specifically spelled out in the Bill of Rights. He cannot lawfully violate the Bill of Rights.

Fortunately it's an elected position...that's why these guys usually toe the line. He should be voted out pronto.

This was on my local news last week here in Cali. It showed what looked like officers in SWAT gear doing house to house searches in outer small towns. I was shocked and had to go take a friend to the Dr. and told him about it. Later, I looked on the news website and couldn't find the story. I think I will phone them and ask if it's on their website 'cause I don't see it. How could they do this? This was one of the Founding Father's no-no's because the British soldiers did it in the Colonies and it was outlawed in the founding of our country!!

They are testing what they can get away with. Just a sampling of the future. Seems like we are seeing more articles on this matter lately.

Thanks TA, I didn't know it was happening everywhere. Looks like those who were chanting "Death to America" may have gotten their wish.
