The Tech Herald is covering the protests taking place today at the Indiana Statehouse. People are gathering to protest a recent Indiana Supreme Court ruling, which says that citizens have no right to reasonably resist unlawful entry by police. Their anger is that the ruling contradicts common law and weakens the Fourth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.

It’s humid in downtown Indianapolis, and there’s a strong chance of rain today. Adding to the interesting mix of situation is the construction around the Statehouse offering the sounds of jackhammers and heavy trucks.
Arriving early, we were not surprised by the lack of visible protesters. What did surprise us were the random chats with Statehouse staffers, most of whom were unaware of the protest.
