Thread: Another episode of deadly force

  1. Another episode of deadly force

    Seems to me that incidents such as this are becoming much more commonplace, at least in this area of the country.

    As Ayoob would phrase it, the robbers were hospitalized and treated for the "acute failure of the victim selection process".

    The only bad part of it is after a vacation they will do it again.

    you are right on the money with that statement. Most BGs are too stupid to learn NOT to be BGs..as I once heard a cop say, "I have not yet arrested a criminal with a MENSA card in his back pocket"!

  7. That's scary that they shouted that they were the police. I hope they also get charged with impersonating.

    But that would certainly give a person pause hearing that... the police have entered the wrong home before.

    That happened in my neck of the woods. Since the Governor signed the Castle Doctrine law we can breath a little better if we used deadly force. I love the quote from the officer.

    Master Deputy Tony Ivey said, "(A) homeowner -- someone inside a residence -- can use any type force they feel necessary to protect themselves, up to and including deadly force."

    Yeah, that's really dirty but from the criminal's perspective, rather smart. This guy took his life in his own hands by simply refusing to believe the scumbags, who for all he knew, might have been telling the truth.

    Any ideas on how the law would treat a person who didn't believe a plainclothes, scummy looking officer and shot him during a home entry?

    I'm sure that the law would depend upon the state... In TN one would be screwed unless they had the wrong house or no warrant, for instance.

    I wouldn't be worried about the law so much as the 10 other officers coming in behind, who would likely be determined to ensure that whatever story was told about the incident afterwards was one-sided.

    That said, I wouldn't heistate to pull the trigger on an unidentified person violently breaking into my home. The odds are that the are not LEO.

    No-knock warrants, especially, should place the risk and responsibility for the outcome directly upon the officers... there is no justifiable reason for circumventing due-process by breaching a home un-announced, in a free country. If someone wants to hole-up in their house, wait them out, unless there is an urgent need to stop some dangerous activity they are engaging in right then (hostage situation, for instance). This 'War on Crime' we have here in this country has gone waaaay too far.
