Seeing as how the victim thought this was a home invasion, how much do you want to bet that the police did not knock and did not clearly identify themselves...

Well, that's some progress on the MSM's part, I guess.

Quote:but said the shooting will be “a major setback” for police relations with the general public.

Fixed it for them. The police have got to stop making these mistakes. I honestly think that nationally it should be allowed to use force in your own home against a police officer if force would be justified against them if they were not a police officer.

If this were the case, SWAT teams would be a lot more careful about what they do. Also, I believe this would cut down on the number of criminals who impersonate the police while committing home invasions.

I do believe this just became the law in Indiana, and the police were rather upset by it.

No more kicking in doors and terrorizing innocent people at the wrong address with total impunity because now it's 100% legal to shoot the dangerous, armed home invaders.

From the article:

" “We did the best surveillance we could do, and a mistake was made,” Lebanon Police Chief Billy Weeks said. “It’s a very severe mistake, a costly mistake. It makes us look at our own policies and procedures to make sure this never occurs again.” He said, however, the two policemen were not at fault."



No, you did not do the best surveillance you could. The best surveillance you could would have resulted in getting the right house. There should not be any blow off statements about looking at procedures, they should come right out and say:

"because of our ineptness, our actions resulted in the murder of an innocent man today". Imo they should be arrested and put in jail. The argument that they were doing this on behalf/representing the government should not be an acceptable excuse.

There is no excuse that a wife, possibly kids, friends and parents should be waking up to this loss today. This is America, not Iraq. This type of conduct is not acceptable nor should it ever be. And unfortunately the wife was right, this was nothing less than a government sanctioned home invasion.

I respect cops as I do any other people in any other profession. When anyone does their job ineptly I lose respect for them. The fact that this ended in the death of an innocent man goes beyond loss of respect and is criminal.

hmmm John Adams...... ironic that he has the name of a founding father patriot and the 2nd president.

If anyone raids my house, I will shoot them. I don't care.

Hows this for a part of the procedure:

The last words in a conversation right before a police raid should be "are we 100% sure we have the right house, we will go to jail if we don't".


If the answer is anything other than "yes, we are 100% sure and willing to risk our freedom on the assessment" they should stop, not move forward until they are 100% sure and are willing to risk their freedom on their assessment.
