    Sounds like a close call though. If the guy had a gun when he was on his way to the door, he would have been dead.

    I don't think a guy who thinks so little of his own safety that he sleeps with his apartment door ajar would have a gun handy.

    I missed that in the article.

    Wonder how they did get in?

    All the smart arses today! The correct address is such a trivial thing in a search warrant. Chill.

    eta: yeah, yeah, it wasn't a case of a warrant. I got it.

    I'm libertarian, and don't really believe in victimless crimes. I've had a decent amount of contact with local law enforcement as victim, witness, and as a suspect. From that contact, I trust cops no more then a random stranger. Having said that, if it went just like the article says, I don't have much of a problem with what they did other then not doing a good enough job announcing themselves when entering the apartment.

    Would you rather they enter first and try to bring themselves to the resident's attention afterwards?

    As far as I can tell, that's exactly what they did. To answer your question, no.

    I'm a libertarian too, and I find it bizarre that I'm defending a police action here yet again.

    I'm getting a better idea of why libertarians are getting such a bad rap these days. There seems to be an unhealthy absolutism in libertarian though where pesky things like details and reality don't matter any more.

    It's counterproductive to libertarian principles, to be sure.

    This. I don't believe that any reasonable person goes to bed with their apartment door ajar.

    At least one state has passed a law stating that police to not have the right to make these types of mistakes unmolested by the innocent homeowner.

    Weird that the resident didn't mention his busted-in door in his interview with the newspaper... Seems like it would enhance his complaint...

    Sounds like a close call. Odd that the door was "ajar".
