    Not saying these were bad officers, or that they deserved to get shot. I hope NO officer ever gets shot in the line of duty.

    However, the man believed he was dealing with a home invasion by criminals, not police, and acted accordingly.

    The jury reached the correct verdict.

    I'm shocked and impressed they found 12 people to put on a jury that all had common sense.

    They all voted "not guilty" even after the corrupt prosecution lowered the charges to try and up the chances of a conviction on something, anything.

    Good shoot, any man that comes into your home like that deserves to be shot, badge or no badge. :|

    Seriously, cops, leave the door kicking to our troops overseas. We Americans are tired of the militarization. Same goes for the politicians who write the laws and send them to do this ridiculous crap.

    Since they knew who they were looking for, wouldn't it be prudent to try to know where the guy actually was instead of assuming where he was before busting down doors? You know, actual surveillance? Or does the mantra of "qualified immunity" supersede actual police work anymore?

    Glad the guy got off. Better yet, he didn't end up dead in the first place.

    In that article they were discussing another man awaiting trail, Marvin Louis Guy, when they also brought up another person in Texas, Henry Goedrich Magee, who the Grand Jury refused to indict and charges were dropped for virtually the same thing:

    Another article. Apparently Mr. Rosas' home had been attacked in the past by gang members with guns after he testified against them in court.

    And then there is this:
