A Candidate for the U.S. Supreme Court

A Judge in Sarasota, Florida, said a homeowner had 'a right to resist' sheriff's deputies who entered his home without a warrant to serve civil papers to him. The deputies tried to arrest his wife after they forced open the garage door she was attempting to close, and the man beat the deputies with a stun gun taken from one of them. One of the deputies was knocked unconscious.

The judge said that the man's time served (8 days in County) was enough and let him go without probation.

Thank Jeebus there are judges on the bench in this country who are willing to recognize and respect the rights of the individual, and understand that the Constitution is intended to protect the individual from the government.
