There’s a law called The Castle Doctrine and it dates back to Old English Common Law that says a man and a woman’s home is their castle and they have every right to defend themselves and to defend their home against criminal intrusion. What that means in Indiana is that if somebody is breaking into your home you do not have to flee before you start defending yourself. You can use force, you can even use deadly force, if you reasonably believe that harm is going to come to you or a family member.
