Thread: Police Raid My House Searching For Roomate

  1. #11
    I recently received a call from local LE because they were called by one of my tenants baby mama's that he was going to end it all and kill himself. They waited patiently for me to arrive with the key, and when I discovered the tenant had in fact changed the locks on me, they continued to wait for the locksmith to arrive. There was no one home in the end, and when I reached my tenant by phone later in the day and told him what had occurred, he claimed to have zero idea of what I was talking about... but thankfully, no one was dead in my apartment, and no doors were broken down, and most certainly, SWAT wasn't used for something like that.

    Put your arms up and refuse to put them down. If they insist, ask what crime you are being charged with? You are compliant and non threatening. 25-30 people should give at least a few witnesses if it goes beyond this.

    Then you've got a nice civil rights case, and probably a boat load of money......
    "No matter how one approaches the figures, one is forced to the rather startling conclusion that the use of firearms in crime was very much less when there were no controls of any sort and when anyone, convicted criminal or lunatic, could buy any type of firearm without restriction. Half a century of strict controls on pistols has ended, perversely, with a far greater use of this weapon in crime than ever before."

    Similar situation happened to a friend-of-a-friend of mine. He was rooming with a guy who had pretended to be 15 to get naughty pictures of an underage girl on MySpace, then posted the pictures to her friends.

    Because of the highly public nature of the case, the police came busting through the door unannounced and put everyone in the apartment in cuffs. The guy wasn't even there, but at least two of the five guys living in the apartment owned semi-auto rifles, which were promptly confiscated along with all the computers and not returned for weeks.

    There was no evidence whatsoever that the guy was a violent person, just a pervert. Yet the police came through the door like he had threatened to kill the President. Just lovely.

    Wow! I think it's just crazy how the LEO's are permitted to overreact like that. I agree the LEO's do have a difficult Job to do But I believe that this is Major Overkill and they should be held accountable for their Mistake , I know we would be.

    What happens if you shoot one coming in the door with a "no-knock"... provided the other cops don't kill you before the press shows up? Reasonable fear of death? or Cop shooter
