    In my house the "Compliance Officer" would get a hot lead enema before finishing a sentence.

    Attention Prosecutor: I don't really believe 95% of the things I post on this site, or anywhere on the internet.

    Luckily, the Blaze story reports the SOB was fired "for making a false statement." He denied entering the house, but the camera didn't lie!!

    So now we have to have video cameras in our homes to protect us from intrusive government employees?

    If he was a thug, I don't think she could have been fast enough to arm herself. A locked door could have prevented this.

    I agree with everyone else on here. A little common sense for one's own protection could have helped her. Had her door been locked (especially while sleeping), this wouldn't have happened. On the other hand, it's a scary situation for anyone and an armed individual might very well have shot him in good faith if he woke them from their bedroom doorway.

    Very scary situation. I'm glad nobody got hurt and I'm pleased to hear that he is no longer employed.

    That is some messed up stuff!! He easily could have been shot. If I woke from deep sleep (and like the homeowner, I cant see shinola without corrective lenses) and saw a large grey man shouting at me, I think there is a distinct possibility that it could have ended badly. At the very least the officer would probably need to change his underwear (and perhaps, I, mine.) That being said, lock your doors ppl!!

    Not sure she's going to press charges? how are you not sure? I'm not sure he would have left my house still alive and not on a gurney!

  14. All I can say is "holy crap". But I know that I wouldn't have shot him since I lost all of my guns in a terrible boating accident.

    Yours was a boating accident? I was cleaning my garage, and I guess all of them got thrown in the dumpster. Go figure
