And now that Donald Trump has picked Indiana Governor Mike Pence to be his running mate, I think it’s fair to ask Pence (and Trump, for that matter) about the Indiana law, passed by a Republican majority in the state legislature and signed by the previous Republican governor, that specifically allows residents to use “deadly force” against police officers under vague circumstances.
