Indiana Court of Appeals

Dezmon Gaines v. State of Indiana
34A05-1201-CR-21
Criminal. Affirms denial of motion to suppress evidence. Indiana Code 9-19-19-4 is not void for vagueness and the officer’s search of Gaines was reasonable. Judge Crone concurs in result.

Jerry L. Kindred v. State of Indiana
28A01-1202-PC-50
Post conviction. Reverses conviction of Class A felony child molesting. Kindred was denied a fair trial based on the extensive hearsay and vouching testimony that was admitted in error. Kindred may be retried.

State of Indiana v. David Bisard
49A04-1109-CR-459
Criminal. Reverses suppression of Bisard’s blood for purposes of various DUI charges. Finds the medical assistant did draw his blood in a way that followed physician-approved protocols and the implied consent statutes indicate that blood evidence is admissible so long as it complies with the rules of evidence. Read more about the decision.

Wayne Brant v. City of Indianapolis
49A05-1201-OV-12
Local ordinance violation. Reverses finding Brant violated a local noise ordinance enforced by the city of Indianapolis regarding his four barking dogs. Concludes that the plain, ordinary and usual meaning of the term “persons” as used in the local noise ordinance necessitates that the complaints of just one neighbor are insufficient.

In the Matter of the Adoption of J.W.; T. McD. v. G.C. (NFP)
53A04-1202-AD-78
Adoption. Affirms denial of T.McD.’s objection to and motion to vacate the decree of adoption of J.W.

  1. Someone off their meds? C'mon John, it is called the politics of Empire. Get with the program, will ya? How can we build one world under secularist ideals without breaking a few eggs? Of course, once it is fully built, is the American public who will feel the deadly grip of the velvet glove. One cannot lay down with dogs without getting fleas. The cup of wrath is nearly full, John Smith, nearly full. Oops, there I go, almost sounding as alarmist as Smith. Guess he and I both need to listen to this again: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CRnQ65J02XA

  2. Charles Rice was one of the greatest of the so-called great generation in America. I was privileged to count him among my mentors. He stood firm for Christ and Christ's Church in the Spirit of Thomas More, always quick to be a good servant of the King, but always God's first. I had Rice come speak to 700 in Fort Wayne as Obama took office. Rice was concerned that this rise of aggressive secularism and militant Islam were dual threats to Christendom,er, please forgive, I meant to say "Western Civilization". RIP Charlie. You are safe at home.

  3. It's a big fat black mark against the US that they radicalized a lot of these Afghan jihadis in the 80s to fight the soviets and then when they predictably got around to biting the hand that fed them, the US had to invade their homelands, install a bunch of corrupt drug kingpins and kleptocrats, take these guys and torture the hell out of them. Why for example did the US have to sodomize them? Dubya said "they hate us for our freedoms!" Here, try some of that freedom whether you like it or not!!! Now they got even more reasons to hate us-- lets just keep bombing the crap out of their populations, installing more puppet regimes, arming one faction against another, etc etc etc.... the US is becoming a monster. No wonder they hate us. Here's my modest recommendation. How about we follow "Just War" theory in the future. St Augustine had it right. How about we treat these obvious prisoners of war according to the Geneva convention instead of torturing them in sadistic and perverted ways.

  4. As usual, John is "spot-on." The subtle but poignant points he makes are numerous and warrant reflection by mediators and users. Oh but were it so simple.

  5. ACLU. Way to step up against the police state. I see a lot of things from the ACLU I don't like but this one is a gold star in its column.... instead of fighting it the authorities should apologize and back off.
