--lasso didn't need a warrant,--
Yes, he did, actually, as it was not a disturbance in progress.
--you don't shoot illegal trespassers in the face with shotguns--
Yeah you do. That is the point of the 2nd Amendment. Castle Doctrine.
--and you don't kill a cop--
Castle Doctrine still applies, cop or not.
edit on 8/15/2011 by Lemon.Fresh because: (no reason given)
An intruder must be making (or have made) an attempt to unlawfully and/or forcibly enter an occupied residence, business or vehicle.
The intruder must be acting illegally—e.g. the Castle Doctrine does not give the right to attack officers of the law acting in the course of their legal duties
The occupant(s) of the home must reasonably believe that the intruder intends to inflict serious bodily harm or death upon an occupant of the home
The occupant(s) of the home must reasonably believe that the intruder intends to commit some other felony, such as arson or burglary
The occupant(s) of the home must not have provoked or instigated an intrusion, or provoked or instigated an intruder to threaten or use deadly force
The occupant(s) of the home may be required to attempt to exit the house or otherwise retreat (this is called the "Duty to retreat" and most self-defense statutes referred to as examples of "Castle Doctrine" expressly state that the homeowner has no such duty)

Your wrong bro...and your not in the legal system and definitely not a police officer.
There are 2 types of warrants Search warrant and an Arrest warrant.
Search warrant is after you have probable cause there are fruits of a crime or criminally possessed items...etc.
He did not need this warrant and it is definitely not applicable in the most remote way.
You can not and will not commit a crime nor refused to provide information or talk to an officer for him to make that determination...once its determined then either crime or no crime...officer leaves or arrests...and in alot of the times told to not do it again at the officer's discretion.
I hope your actually learning here so your not jacked up in the future making people believe your posts.
Oh...like I said earlier...just ride along with a police officer if you have the guts and learn a thing or two on the beat.
