    I have heard several times over the past years that military members enjoy the same rights as peace officers. Discussing this with various members of the law enforcement community from several agencies. I have gotten different interpretations of the law. I have been unable to find a current copy of the code. Anybody smart on this issue?

    This is the 2005 code, the bills passed in 2006 have yet to be updated.
