Until we know the facts it's all irrelavant anyways. He's got some quick reflexes for an elderly person though if he was asleep. I know how fast those
cops can break in a door and be on you so coming out of a dead sleep while not seeing or hearing very well, grabbing your gun and firing off rounds is
quite a feat.
And if his hearing was that bad that he couldn't hear the shouts of "Police" how is he gonna hear a door being broken. I imagine they are close to the
same decibal level.
You know, I always like it when people like you storm into threads. It clearly shows the lack of any need for this sort of behavior with law
enforcement, due to your arguments always being flimsy, dismissive and offensively silly. You people always have the same methods. You come in,
immediately display your willingness to dismiss the entire case, claiming you either know a thing about law enforcement because you are an officer
yourself, or you extrapolate sympathy on behalf of all law enforcement, to back up your claims.
"Everything the officers did was right, and this man was clearly a criminal, case closed. This is clearly evident by all the 'facts' I made up on
the spot, by attacking the man's character whom I know nothing about, and I even have revealing information on his hobbies, morning habits, sexual
promiscuities, and exclusive information about how his toast always lands butter-side down when he drops it."
Then, you quickly get into some ludicrous arguments over ridiculous semantics, goading people into your trite and vitriol, then try to shut the whole
thing down by claiming "we know nothing of this case, so everything is irrelevant".
So which is it? Is your opinion relevant, or is it not. I prefer to have my opinions relevant when I choose to discuss something. If nothing is
relevant, why did you come in here and dismiss the entire case with your not so sarcastic 'facts'? I didn't find it all that funny, and if it was
sarcastic, it was the driest sarcasm I've seen all night.
Never mind the fact that they raided a man's house for legally prescribed opiates, something pharmacies hand out like candy corn on Halloween, with
little to no oversight whatsoever. Outside of caffeine, it's probably the most abused substance in the United States. Due to the fact of it being
prescribed everywhere, to everyone and their dog. Yet they raided his house anyway, shot him down, and found a few empty bottles of medication.
Excessive force much? Dystopian nightmare yet? What is it going to take for you people to simply say, "Yea, that's probably too much. People are
obviously in a state of fear and are getting desperate."
If my house was "raided" under asinine pretense, and considering I'm not engaged in any crimes that I figure would warrant such a raid, then I would
do exactly what this man did, and that would be to engage in some form of combat to defend myself. Due to the fact that I'm not a criminal, least of
all a violent one, and anyone busting into my house probably has intent to kill me. I don't take kindly to having my house literally assaulted with a
combat team. My life loses it's value if I feel a team of sociopaths can break into my home on the whims of a gossip-hen, and with the intent to kill
me if possible. If you think this should be normal behavior in the United States for such infractions as "distributing prescribed medication" (exactly
how much are they scripting this man?!), then you probably need to take medication yourself, probably a sedative or tranquilizer so you can leave the
rest of us in non-violent, non-repressive, peace and prosperity.
When people's beliefs and ideals lend to the necessity of combat teams entering your home and killing you dead
for the slightest infractions,
then maybe it's time to take a few steps back, take a deep breath, think, then exhale. Now repeat after me, "It's going to be
