battery1979: TrotlineDesigns: Also, this is why the cops make a huge mistake with their 'no knock warrants' because some folks in those neighborhoods will think the logical thought.. HOME INVASION -- then shoot.

People who are likely to be the victims of home invasions, are not likely to be the same type of people subject to no knock warrants and vice versa.


Yeah, no.  Poor people are robbed most of all.

Those burglars are going to get a beat-down if/when they get caught. Not saying it's justified, but I'm not saying it's not.

My reaction if I saw them getting arrested.

robohobo: Let the police-hate flow. Do all of you live in the goddamned ghetto? Some of have cops that, y'know, are actually good people doing their job. Fark, I've had to call the police twice in the past few years because of prowlers, and both times I was baked silly, cops at my house, bowls on display, and nada. They were at my house in less than 2 minutes and drove the neighborhood for like 2 hours.


You sound white.

Deadite: It's either open the door and get robbed or don't open it and get shot by the real police. If you have good insurance whats stolen can get replaced a cop shooting you will just get a nice paid vacation.


This is in Florida. A lot of homeowners can't get anything for insurance but fire coverage from Citizens. That is particularly so if you own an older home.

You Cant Explain That: This is exactly why you should shoot dead anyone at your door displaying a badge. They will either shoot you, rob you, or shoot your dog.

Whatever it is, it will end badly unless you take action to prevent it.


Here in my town the cops just last week shot a guys dog.
