Urgent... Indiana Needs to Hear our Voice!!! - Dispatcher

I don't usually post this stuff.. but recently had a friend call and let me know about it.  So a quick log in to say hello and wish you all well... I will be posting again soon... But feel this is extremely important to do.  

First read the article about what they are doing in Indiana (Indiana house backs bill on right to resist police) .. it still hasn't been through the final voting process.. So we have a short time to be heard and fight for the men and woman in blue (and their families) in Indiana!  Then let's call the governor and let him know what we really think of what he is doing to our family in blue!!!
I miss you all!  Can't wait to hear about what you are all up too!!! 

Here is the contact info for Gov. Mitch Daniels of Indiana:
Phone: 317-232-4567
By snail mail: Office of the Governor, Statehouse, Indianapolis, Indiana 46204-2797
Email: visit his website at, click on Email the Gov.
Lets do it like this: Monday morning, at 8 a.m. Indiana time, start calling the phone number to ask the Gov to veto Senate Bill 1.
Write a followup letter and mail it to the snail mail address
Email a third followup.
This will take you 30 minutes tops to do all three and this will bury the Gov's office. Language in your email and letter should be cordial, firm and include a reminder that there are 900,000 sworn officers in the US; that means well over 1 million registered voters across the nation.
Always be cordial, professional and to the point.

After reading the article you linked, I have to say, this seems like a pretty reasonable law. The first words in the article are "Citizens would have the right to resist police who unlawfully enter their residence." It goes on to simply reinstate law that existed there and still exists in most places in the country since the founders.

Thanks for the comment jake. I have to say I still don't like it. Mainly for the reason that I don't want citizens to start thinking they can 'resist'! In all the agencies I have worked for all you had to do was call in or merely ask for a supervisor to respond. Which we sent out with no problem.

I guess for me and officer it seems like we are giving the criminals, the thought that they can fight with officers. Then work it all out in the end later.

It's so dangerous out there now as it is. :-(

As a Hoosier I was appalled at the supreme court decision last may and am very much in favor of the current bill as written. Sorry but we DO have the right to resist UNLAWFUL and ILLEGAL entry into our homes. Pretty simple really.

My name is Jessica Reedy and I work as a producer at NPR's Talk of the Nation. I'm working on a show for tomorrow about emergency medical dispatchers and would love to chat with someone who is actively working in the field about what their job is like. I would love to pick your brain and chat more about the show. Would you mind shooting me an email with your contact information? You can reach me at

Thanks for the consideration,
Jessica Reedy
