We don't know exactly how this went down. Perhaps he opened the door partly, with his gun behind the door just in case, but the still unidentified
police thinking they have an alleged attempted murder suspect, they charged at and pushed the door open revealing him with a gun, so with their guns
all at the ready they shot him. That sounds more likely than a guy answering the door gun-barrel first.
KNOCK-KNOCK. "Police! Open up, we have a warrant!" Or open up, we have possible cause in this case. This doesn't sound too difficult to do but maybe
the proper approach would have compromised their strategic edge.
Are we teaching kids how to submit to police authority in public schools? Perhaps we need to teach them the proper procedure for what to do when the
police are pounding on their door in middle of the night. This needs to be drilled into their heads so they will take they proper actions when
groggily awakened from sleep by heavy and persistent pounding on their doors. Of course criminals hiding out will probably suspect the police have
caught up with them, but what about the innocent guy who might not know what is going on or sleepily rationalize the scenario?
Perhaps fourth-graders should drill being hand-cuffed and taken into custody submissively, not because they may become hunted criminals later in life
but because there is every possibility they may be mistaken for one. This could help prevent the woman in her 70's being tazed for being argumentative
at a traffic stop, and worse scenarios.
I sincerely doubt there is much remorse in this case, except perhaps for the trigger-men that might be dreading disciplinary action or being assigned
office-duty instead of paid leave during an investigation. Of course the traumatizing experience all the involved officers faced will likely warrant
some leave time in order for them to recover from this tragedy. Most of the department, I'm sure, will be gathering at their neighborhood police
watering hole and talking about what a scum-sucker the innocent man was anyway and what a relief to have him off the streets to prevent any future
encounter with him - he had drugs in his house, afterall. Then I expect they will toast another round to the brave officers that were doing their
sworn and civic duty. Cheers, America!
