If you're going to have a stand off with police at some point in your future, plan ahead.

Make the secret escape tunnel years before you need it. Make sure it's unobtrusive and hard to find, so even after you use it, the cops don't realize it immediately. Have it open far away from your domicile and our of sight in case you get surrounded.

Man traps are illegal. Since you're going to be fighting the police, you're already across that barrier, but you don't want to dig yourself any deeper. Traps are unethical anyway. Those are good men and women who hold the thin blue line.You don't want to hurt them. What you want to do is get lots of look alikes. Make it so your home LOOKS like a bomb maker's hut in a war movie. This means the SWAT people won't be able to just burst in, sweep the place, and find your hidey hole. You want the bomb squad mobilized and 100's of people evacuated and chaos to reign so you can shuffle away in the confusion.

Third: weapons are a bad idea. You can't out gun the police. Imagine the president gave you the keys to the Pentagon and said "Take whatever you want." one day. You get the most powerful guns and enough ammo to feed them forever. You still can't outgun the police. There's a lot of them, they have radios, and there will always be more. So play it like Batman. Any "weapon" you have should cause area denial without bodily harm. If you shoot at a cop, everyone with a badge in the whole country will be after you and looking for blood, even if you miss. If you hit them with a couple colorful smoke screens and glue them to the ground with some kind of Rodger Rabbit adhesive on the floor, you might even get away with misdemeanor charges and an insanity plea. You can have guns to, but only for show. I wouldn't even load them in case you accidentally hit someone.

Fourth, why? There's three good reasons to have a stand off with the police: You're a real super hero and you've been framed, you're a rum runner and booze is illegal again, you are a super villain. None of these are possible. So, any other reason you have to resist the police in an armed stand off is a bad one. I would say nix the whole thing and spend your effort on drinking beer and watching sports games live.

... Dammit, my mother was right! Whenever we would watch cop/law shows together, she'd always complain about how they're too stupid to go around the back. I'd always say "Mom, it's a TV show. They need a chase scene to be dramatic. They wouldn't be that stupid in real life."

I was wrong to underestimate the stupidity of the cops. *hangs head in shame*

Last week the policce surrounded my neighbor's house and kicked his door in, guns drawn, the whole show. They did shout that they had his house surrounded first.
I'm still wondering what some scrawney kid did that would merit that much police force and display of power.
Eh, high tax base and training exercises maybe.

Not stupid. Complacent. It's a rare thing a criminal is smart enough to run out the back. We need to start breeding smarter criminals to keep our cops on their toes.

Okay so he had an argument and ran to his house. And....that's it?

Seems like the bar for deploying swat, cordoning off several city blocks, and then a subsequent manhunt is getting kinda low.

"We learned that he is a veteran and there were firearms inside the house," said Miami-Dade Police Det. Alvaro Zabaleta. "So now, of course, when you add to the formula an individual who has firearms inside the house, refuses to come out, who's already had a physical confrontation with somebody, then of course that escalates things a little bit."

And, by God, we saw and raised his escalation.
