    Had it been the PO-LICE that made that error, folks would be screaming. Sounds like someone needs to do their homework before taking action, as I would expect from law enforcement as well. It would behoove all parties involved to make sure you have your ducks in a row before showing up armed at someone's door.

    I have often wondered about oversight when it comes to bounty hunters actions. Yes, I know LEOs make mistakes to, but I am much less concerned when it comes to LEOs.

    This is quite eye opening.

    I'm going to be a lot more skeptical of things I read on Facebook!

    Do you think it's possible chain emails may not be reliable either???

    In part I agree with you, but I believe that the only people who should have the authority to forcibly breach a home are law enforcement. I am concerned with anyone forcibly entering the wrong home, police or not. A bullet from a cop's gun will kill you just as dead as the bullet from that bounty hunter's gun. Force your way into the wrong home, it should be your ass, LEO or not. People who "SWAT" someone should be charged with attempted murder, as a minimum.

    Just going by the always complete and factual reporting that news outlets always provide the more bizarre part of the story to me is the Chief coming out in his boxers with only a baton.

    Did they forget to mention that his name was Chuck Norris?

    Wonder when the last time he qualified with his duty gun as chief? And to open the door in his tighty-whities with only a baton says tons about his tactical skills when he knew there were a ton of guys outside, especially when his "significant other" was already on the phone with 911. Kinda embarrassing for Phoenix PD.

    Must have thought they were Jehovah Witnesses. I always wanted to answer the door in my underwear with a shotgun, tucked in my tighty whiteys so I couldn't be accused of brandishing.

    I figure they must have a do not call list, it's just a matter of figuring out how to get on it.

    I like my odds.
