Verifing it's the police on the other side of your locked bedroom door.
There is a current WWYD thread that has alot of people locking them selves in thier bedrooms and waiting it out. I answered that I would also do that in my response.
Ok. Your blessed and the BG decided to leave. The police show up and are on the other side of your BR door but you are still locked in and you don't know that it's the GG's in fact on the other side of the door.
I personally would think that I would still have 911 on the line. I am sure that the police would announce their presence, would I be out of line to ask the dispatcher for the name of the responding officers and then ask the officers what their names are before unlocking the door? Or would i just be ******* the cops off?
Theoretical situations pale in comparison to a real situation
Well if the cops showed up I'd call 9-11 to make sure...
cops are for my protection, gotta love and respect that, but until they get there to protect me the guy on the other side of the door has to be assumed hostile.
I'd prob call the dispatch
but I am pretty positive that the cops are trained to deal with this sort of situation, so all should be good in the end and I hope to god that I never have to be in a situation to grab my gun and defend my life or wonder who exactly IS on the other side of that door...
