DID POLICE KILL KEVIN HICKS ILLEGALLY?

Did you know you have the right to use force to stop police from making an illegal arrest? Did Kevin Hicks believe that the police officer was trying to arrest him illegally? If so, then Kevin had the legal right to resist the officer with the force necessary, to include deadly force, to stop what he believed was an illegal arrest.

Here's what Indiana's Stand Your Ground Law says:

(i) A person is justified in using reasonable force against a public servant if the person reasonably believes the force is necessary to: (1) protect the person or a third person from what the person reasonably believes to be the imminent use of unlawful force; (2) prevent or terminate the public servant's unlawful entry of or attack on the person's dwelling, curtilage, or occupied motor vehicle; or (3) prevent or terminate the public servant's unlawful trespass on or criminal interference with property lawfully in the person's possession, lawfully in possession of a member of the person's immediate family, or belonging to a person whose property the person has authority to protect.

(j) Notwithstanding subsection (i), a person is not justified in using force against a public servant if: (1) the person is committing or is escaping after the commission of a crime; (2) the person provokes action by the public servant with intent to cause bodily injury to the public servant;     (3) the person has entered into combat with the public servant or is the initial aggressor, unless the person withdraws from the encounter and communicates to the public servant the intent to do so and the public servant nevertheless continues or threatens to continue unlawful action; or (4) the person reasonably believes the public servant is: (A) acting lawfully; or (B) engaged in the lawful execution of the public servant's official duties. 

(k) A person is not justified in using deadly force against a public servant whom the person knows or reasonably should know is a public servant unless: (1) the person reasonably believes that the public servant is: (A) acting unlawfully; or (B) not engaged in the execution of the public servant's official duties; and (2) the force is reasonably necessary to prevent serious bodily injury to the person or a third person.

Michaeel,

So what is your point? Just because a person has a past then it is alright for them to be unjustly killed by police? This possible police misuse of power so concerned the Founding Fathers that they made the right to carry and bear arms the 2nd amendment of the Constitution. They saw this coming!! Now you appear to be trying to justify this misuse of power. Quit it!!

May 17, 2016 | Registered CommenterRev. Ajabu

Actions have consequences. In fact, Kevin gave up his second Amendment rights with his first felony conviction.
His cousin said Kevin loved to fight.
The officer didn't.
Bye bye scumbag

May 18, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterMichaeel

You are so off target. Just because a person has a past does not justify anyone, especially a police officer, killing their future. Eye witnesses say the officer started the fight and couldn't win the fight so killed Kevin to end the fight. So what's the lesson there? Don't start what you can't finish? Check yourself!!
