Lockout to Continue

3 of 3

Based on the pace and evolution of this case I will be very surprised if the 2011-2012 season starts on time or ever.

I will continue to update you as information becomes available. Perhaps to pass the time you might explore the recent decision by our friends in Indiana ostensibly overturning a common law dating back to the English Magna Carta of 1215. In Barnes v. State the Indiana Supreme Court ruled that Hoosiers have no right to resist unlawful police entry into their homes. Writing for the court, Justice Steven David said if a police officer wants to enter a home for any reason or no reason at all, a homeowner cannot do anything to block the officer’s entry.***

If a football referee were as flawed as our judges, the game as we know it would collapse. I implore you to review the aforementioned case and even take a little time to become aware of what is going on in this country. Remember, democracy requires vigilance and participation and I think we have all been lacking in those areas in the last number of years.

*The 1932 Act established as United States law that employees should be free to form unions without employer interference, and also withdrew from the federal courts jurisdiction relative to the issuance of injunctions in nonviolent labor disputes. No federal court can offer jurisdiction. The three provisions include protecting worker’s self-organization and liberty, removing jurisdiction from federal courts, and outlawing the “yellow dog” contract. Wikipedia
