    The recent "SWATting" events (fake SWAT / 911 calls made on citizens alleging false criminal behavior) made me think. What if someone yelling "Police!" kicks in your door?

    If someone kicks in your door you'd (hopefully) be grabbing a handful of weapon and anticipating a home invasion. But ........ the person(s) kicking in your door (or whatever) are yelling "POLICE!"

    Whaddaya do? Meet the intruder with a weapon and it IS the Police :wow: responding to a false alarm?

    Not have a weapon and it's a lying scumbag breaking down your door?

    Seems this could be a violation of your civil rights. But what do you do? Thoughts?

    Unfortunately, if you hear "police" being yelled I would think it'd be smart to hope it really is the police. Tough situation.

    Weird. The above scenario is not possible without a warrant unless there is an exigent circumstance. The exigent circumstances are few and far between.

    It is harder than most people think to obtain "no-knock" search warrants. Although there has been bad things happen involving the wrong house, etc, those events are few and far between. When these type warrants do occur, there's a good reason that teams apply for them to be "no-knock" entries.
