An Indiana legislative committee plans to discuss proposals to change state law in reaction to a state Supreme Court decision that residents don't have the right to resist police officers who illegally enter their homes. The ruling drew protests that it violated homeowners' rights. A study committee appointed to look into the issue is to meet Thursday afternoon at the Statehouse in Indianapolis. Lawmakers said at previous meetings they wanted to better define when and how someone can resist police officers entering their home.
