    What bothers me most about this is the "desk 30 feet away" - that's one HUGE office! Maybe that's a typo or maybe it's an embellishment, either way, it takes credibility away from the rest of the story.

    It's a story related by someone I trust to have been telling the truth. The guy in the story was a big shot CEO of a tech firm. I think it happened in Nevada, but I can't be sure. Anyway, he often worked at home and had a huge office.

    Hope that helps ease your doubts regarding credibility. Usually if I make stuff up, it's fairly obvious.

    I suspect most people think cops are their friends, which is why they blab. Cops are trying to put your bubblegum in jail. Don't give them what they need to do that. Even if those particular cops mean no harm to you, they still have to report, and you may end up facing a prosecutor with political aspirations (they don't move up by letting people off).

    I don't imagine politically-motivated prosecutors in red pro-gun Idaho would MOVE UP by hammering well-intentioned armed people who defending themselves against home intruders especially when forced entry was committed either!

    Defending against Intruders are one thing, then after you defend yourself you have to turn around and defend yourself with the COPS, NOT!! Talk to the Police, Be Open, Inviting, Pour out your heart, NO WAY, just say "LAWYER" and keep your dang Mouth SHUT. This Isn't Mayberry and there never was a Mayberry.
