This guy was wrong for firing before identifying the threat. But he was definitely set up by a person with a criminal track-record seeking to have charges expunged..... and is now being railroaded by a police department & DA not willing to admit that one of their own was killed in a raid based on a criminal's say-so alone.
In response to the above... when and if I see some unidentified guys battering down my door, all dressed in black, wearing ski-masks, no visible identification--at two or three o:clock in the morning... I'd probably go to war also.
In this example, the resident fired through a closed door, at something he couldn't even see or identify.That is not acceptable from any standpoint, andis pure negligence. What if it had been an emergency andhis frantic neighbor wasbanging on his door for help.
One of these days, real soon, some LEO's will be handed a warrant (which is politically movitaved, or even falsified, or both) to serve on an individual/s, but they will be stopped by a richous use of force--some LEO's may even die.
One of these daysthis is going to happen (and it did already), and then richousmen (with guns) will come out of the woodwork (by the hundreds, by the thousands) to put an end to this. Some day, somewhere Gov officials and LEO are going to step on a huge, huge landmine.
It will be a day of reckoning that will wake up this nation.
FYI: The Waco stand was put to the end when it happend, because armed men (militia types) were beginning to show up in the surrounding areas, and they started asking questions (which is not permitted in our society now). This was building and building all through the stand-off. The gov knew it would get ugly (like the citizens would rise), so they ended it.
What gets me is that well educated men (FBI & Texas Rangers, and military snipers) did what they did without question
in Waco. Like I say... if they get the orders to round up gun-owners, christians, jews, patriots--they will do it to preserve their paychecks and pensions (not all but the vast majority).
The big question is when can we as citizens userichousdefensive force against our own LEO's and gov when they get out of control? When and how could this be comtemplated?
What puzzles meis that these FLDS people didn't go to war with the state of Texas when over 400 of their children were taken on trumped-up accusations. To know these people is to know that they make all of uson this site look like wacko-liberals. I mean they are ultra, ultra beyondimagination conservative--and well armed.
There are thousands of them beyond that ranch tract that was raided a few months ago. One word from their prophet leaked out from jail for them to go to war, and there would have been a blood-bath. I think they showed amazing restraint despite being completely screwed by the government and LEO's.
This is a great example of LEO's blindly obeying politically motivated orders. The FLDS members are being targeted by the gov. A lot of this pressure to act upon the FLDS is coming out of the main LDS HQ in Salt Lake. And please don't think I'm a LDS hater--I'm an alumnus of BYU.
