Hello All- During a segment of "Man Hunters" (A US Marshall Fugitive Recovery Task Force), this group hit Two incorrect houses after 2am, trying to serve a warrant on an armed and dangerous fugitive. Now, I am a law abiding citizen, my family are law abiding citizens. There are small children in my house sometimes (Split custody), and we pray before bed, tuck in tight, and hit the hay early (for Daddy and Uncle have to wake up at 4am & 5am to hit the morning commute).
In any event, I was wondering your take- or the legal ramifications if/when poor intelligence and poor planning lead a Paramilitary ‘Law Enforcement ‘ team to bust your door down after 2am and terrorize your family.
During the last episode of “Man Hunters” two incorrect houses were hit prior to them hitting the correct house (Third time is a charm, I suppose). But It got me thinking as I watched my pumpkin sleep, “WHAT IF???” … At 2am, My Door was crashed through, with a lot of yelling and commotion; my pistol would probably be emptied in 2-3seconds into the doorway. THEN WHAT?! My family is minus one… OR out of shear commotion and gunfire my entire house is dropped off this earth by a Bad Mistake.
Home invasions are more common these days; many of whom impersonate Law Enforcement.
Looks like this is a no-win situation.
