    Disturbing- Home Invaders- yell "Police!" on entry..

    Been hearing more of these cases, of late- I'm sure, for most folks, it happens suddenly enough that upon hearing it, they probably pause a bit too long to be able to defend themselves, if equipped or inclined to do so?

    Deputies say the suspects kicked in the front door to this Dunedin apartment early Sunday morning.DUNEDIN (FOX 13) - Dunedin resident Luis Rivera has several days of healing in front of him.

    His face is busted up a bit and he's a little sore in a few other places. The result of an attack by some violent home invaders who struck at Rivera's just before dawn Sunday morning.

    "He kept hitting me over the head with the pistol several times," Rivera said of the incident. "The comments they were making was shoot them, shoot them."

    Pinellas County Sheriff's deputies say at approximately 5:30 a.m. a group of masked men kicked in the door to an apartment in Dunedin's Windermere complex.

    Seven people including Rivera were fast asleep inside. The suspects allegedly yelled ‘Police,' once they gained access to the home.

    The suspects demanded a safe and didn't leave until they got it. The group made off with about $2,500 in cash.

    Rivera says this group of criminals knew what they were doing.

    "The way they did it was very skilled it seems like something they do regularly," he said. "[It's] not something that's going to come to an end anytime soon."

    The violent home invasion bares an eerie resemblance to a pair of similar crimes that occurred in St. Petersburg in June. Surveillance video of one of the crimes shows a suspect yelling ‘Police,' just as they kick open a door.

    Detectives say it is unclear if Sunday's home invasion is related to the ones from June. The investigation is just in its early stages.

    Other Windermere residents are considering a change of address.

    "If I'm home alone I don't want to be concerned about 4 to 5 guys coming in my house," said Akira Mitchell.

    Michael Tempesta believes the attackers aren't local.

    "It is a quiet place in general," he said of the complex. "I honestly don't think the people that did that are from this area."

    Rivera suffered some minor injuries at the hands of the suspects.

    "I hope these criminals that put this damage on me get caught," he added.

    Witnesses say there were three to five men and all were wearing dark clothing with bandanas across their faces. Some were sporting tattoos.

    Investigators believe Sunday morning's home invasion is drug related. If you have any information about the case place contact the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office.

    ya know, if someone comes in yelling POLICE and you shoot them dead, did they make a sound at all?

    Duh, no.

    If anybody breaks into my house at 5:30am shouting "police", FBI, Immigration or anything else, the resulting gunfire will silence that nonsense and hopefully put an end to that type of behaviour.

    If it actually happens to be the police, then the resulting lawsuit over my death will allow my wife to live in the manner that she's currently attempting to believe in.

    I'm sorry, but I didn't hear anything after the door breaking, the flash-bang, and the sound of my firearm, your honor...

    I have no reason for the police to be kicking my door in. I would dispatch whomever came through the door without hesitation.

    So you use the dog a sort of police detector?

    If the infiltrators shoot your dog, you know they are government infiltrators, right?

    I too have no reason for the police to come a knocking. I will also take defensive measures if someone enters my house yelling police. If the police made a 'wrong address" mistake it will be their last. Sorry, if you can't control your violent criminals from pretending to be the police this is the end result. The police in Vermont don't go around kicking in doors anyway...
