If you're a cop, and see a door open at three am, what should you do? go away without even trying to see if everything is ok? let's see, if you were being kidnapped or murdered inside, and the cops went away, or just write a note and leave there, would you be happy about it? or you would be happy they got in just in case something was wrong.

Feeling a bit trigger happy are we? Last time I checked, shooting a cop for 'breaking numerous laws' was not advisable. In fact I'm fairly certain they didn't break any laws at all.
I would like to know more about this public service campaign though if anyone here lives in the area.

Yes, statistics have shown that 98% of those that leave a door unlocked are slaughtered in their sleep.
Are you for real?

Homeowner should have shot the cops.
They broke numerous laws by entering his house.

I just dont see the logic ( or lack there of) that many people are using in this thread. We live in a violent society with numerous sadistic criminals.
I would rather the police intervene on a person's behalf.

I think it is unfortunate that these police officers are receiving so much criticism for attempting to make their community safer. No, they should not have entered the house, but - in my view anyway - it is better them than thieves/rapists/child molesters.
