Why isn't he also being charged federally and/or with RCW 9.41.140 for this? Sure, it's only a misdemeanor (ref: RCW 9.41.810), but still sounds like this guy deserves to get as many counts against him as possible.The serial number on the rifle had been removed.
This is also why I don't like "no knock" warrants. This isn't the first time criminals have impersonated police to get residents of a home to submit to their intrusion. I'm sorry, but you don't bust down my door without repercussions, no matter who you are. You want into my house, knock like a normal person and talk to me... serve me a warrant and work within the US Constitution.
