In my SWAT standoff, my dog kept them out of the backyard as well! And, to their credit, they scaled the fence quickly, and they did not shoot the
dog. That would have changed the whole scenario!
They were polite, and they were respectful, and so was I, and they got what they wanted, and nobody got hurt. Since that day, my strategy, and my
neighbors, and my thought-process has changed! That was some valuable experience! I could not have held out against that force. Not even with 2
grown men, 2 women, the dog, the AK's, the Riot Shot Guns, etc. There were too many of them, there was even a helicopter, and they had armor that I
didn't have, and I was surrounded, but they were not. I didn't stand a chance!
Now, if an equivalent situation occured, I have a better network of friends, better fortification, better arms, and better strategy. I could look at
I could "choose" to comply, if I felt it was better to fight another day, or I could "choose" to peacefully resist, bide my time while informing
my network to come to my defense, or I could "choose" to violently resist, whole up in the house and by the time my support arrived, so would their
support, and then it would be up to the will of the neutral people and the press!
I don't want to depend on that 3rd scenario, not unless Doomsday has arrived and there is absolutely no other alternative!
In all likelihood, I would still comply peacefully, befriend them, thank them for their service, remember as many names and faces as possible, and
afterwards, I would continue to tweak my situation, and I would know victory was assured before I went to get my guns back!!
