9:45 a.m. 02S05-1404-CR-246. Police responded to telephone calls that four dogs were fighting in Carpenter’s yard.  The  dogs, covered with mud and blood, were running in and out of the house through an open sliding glass door.  Three of the dogs were captured.  Two officers entered Carpenter’s house to capture the fourth dog, and they saw marijuana.  They obtained a search warrant based on what they had seen, and confiscated marijuana and other controlled substances.  The Allen Superior Court denied a motion to suppress this evidence and found Carpenter guilty of two class D felonies and other offenses.  The Court of Appeals affirmed in Carpenter v. State, 3 N.E.3d 1068 (Ind. Ct. App. 2014), vacated.  The Supreme Court has granted a petition to transfer the case and has assumed jurisdiction over the appeal.

  5. It was all that kept us from tyranny. So sad that so few among the elite cared enough to guard the sacred trust. Nobody has a more sacred obligation to obey the law than those who make the law. Sophocles No man is above the law and no man is below it; nor do we ask any man's permission when we ask him to obey it. Obedience to the law is demanded as a right; not asked as a favor. Theodore Roosevelt That was the ideal ... here is the Hoosier reality: The King can do no wrong. Legal maxim From the Latin 'Rex non potest peccare'. When the President does it, that means that it is not illegal. Richard Nixon
