    This happened in Maryland I believe, but still interesting. I'd be lawyering up...

    Now this sort of thing happens here to one of us. We protect ourselves, shoot a police officer, go to jail on manslaughter.......

    Right?

    I hate these kinds of things and pray it never happens to me.

    +1 I have wondered everytime I read one or these stories, if i would still be alive to face charges. You fire at them they keep firing back, UGLY.

    That officer who said he didn't care about the woman being pregnant should be brought up on assult charges, 2 counts. :x

    Yep if your lucky more than likely we would be taking the eternal dirt nap.....they come blasting through.... you get off a few rounds then 4-5 officers open full fire....might take a few with you but i doubt you will come out nicely....... and if you were lucky to survive I'm sure you would be prosecute under some crazy loophole that you defended your home but they were police officers and they identified themselves even if they didn't your word against theirs.

    Anothe reason im glad i don't live in an APT or subdivision.....

    I would sue until the Police Chief's mama cried.

    If you're lucky, you might (might I say) get an apology. If they were doing their job and simply made an honest mistake, no harm - no foul and no cause for action.

    So let's recap.

    Cops make a mistake and bust into your house breaking down the door, shooting your dog, terrorizing your family, putting everyone in handcuffs, tearing the place apart and leaving.

    You can sue and get nothing. I don't know of anyone who has won one of these.

    You can get off a couple of quick shots and end up dead.

    Not much of a choice...

    But, look at the big picture. If we are to ensure the War on Drugs is vigorously prosecuted, some mistakes will be made. But we must get drugs off the streets. It's for the children.

    So, suck it up and quit whining...!

    Or, we could do the logical and unthinkable thing by legalizing the damn drugs and putting an end to this crap!

    Any wonder why so many people hate the police these days? I'm not anti-LEO, but if this happened to me and my family I would certainly be plotting something in revenge.

    Yes. It is covered in Bohica v. State.

    Well, after reading Ramm's case law of Bohica v State, I stand corrected. I withdraw my previous post that I would sue the Police Chief!
