    To bad the homeowner only winged him. Would have saved taxpayers some money.

    Guess the hatchet-throw led the homeowner to doubt these were police officers, huh?

    proves not everyone who busts down your door and shouts POLICE is a good guy.

    Shooting across the street,up the street and muderers walking in front of my place.

    This is really terrifying.

    The only home-invasion I worry about is one where the invaders are pretending to be cops.

    I don't want to be Jose Guerena and get hosed with 70 rounds of AR fire for defending myself. -That's a losing proposition.

    But this kind of thing is what will make you hesitate at the exact moment you need to be ACTING. I have zero good answers for this. I neither wish to shoot a cop who f***ed up on the warrant address, nor to be shot by a SWAT team who got the wrong address. But this kind of incident makes me want to shoot first and ask questions later. -A response that's as problematic as hesitation.
