Indiana law lets citizens shoot at police.

Every time police Sgt. Joseph Hubbard stops a speeder or serves a search warrant, he says he worries that suspects assume they can open fire - without breaking the law.
How is that different from serving a search warrant for an actual criminal? Does he just roll over or does he still fight?

"If I pull over a car and I walk up to it and the guy shoots me, he's going to say, 'Well, he was trying to illegally enter my property,' " said Hubbard.
Just as was said when states no longer infringed upon the right to carry...

It's not clear under the law whether an officer acting in good faith could be legally shot for mistakenly kicking down the wrong door to serve a warrant,
Now I assumed from reading the OP that that was exactly why this law was put in place?? If it doesn't clearly state in black and white that law abiding citizens can protect themselves when police "mistakenly" break down their doors and come blazing in ready to shoot you if you look at them funny, it's useless!
