    If they are from Eastern Europe, they should be used to state police barging into their homes in the middle of the night. Too bad things are getting that way here.

    The person calling in a "road rage" incident is a f***ing retard.

    Five hours later? Guns? Ordering out of the house?

    Was there a warrant?

    Same questions I was asking. Then again, we're only going on information reported by the media - and we know how accurate that is.

    It didn't say that they went into the house, just that they pulled him outside and cuffed him....would that require a warrant?
    Still a little excessive. 5 hours to run a trace on a license plate???

    Well, what were they going to do if he sat inside the house and stuck his tongue out at them?

    Like this -------> :p

    This kind of makes me think I should never open the door if I see a policeman.

    And if someone had done that to you when you were a police officer?

    Would you have any cival recourse against the person that reported the incident? Could you sue them for false accusation which resulted in the police action? Of course I am asking if you would have a reasonable chance of winning such a suit, not if you could file it.
