You're at home watching soaps in your underwear when 2 men break through your front door. They instantly see you, you have no idea what their intentions are.
Of course, this is during the day, you're sure a neighbor watched these men break into your home. You decide to calmly wait for the police to arrive. This is the neighbor's call: YouTube - 911 Caller: 'They Were Pushing the Door In' .
You'll be ok, right?
Crime should be outlawed.
OK, I'm at home in my underwear with a Kimber in my hand as two individuals kick in my door.
(Immediately the two individuals will be confronted by the sight of me in my underwear and my Kimber...either one is pretty scary.)
As my gun is always near me at home, and no neighbors or relatives would dare kick in my door (they know why), I will be stopping the threat as the molding starts flying.
When you start kicking my door, I already know that your intentions are to do great bodily harm...no questions need be asked.

I think you are all missing the point no one was home at the house, the woman is a by-stander a neighbor, she does not have a dog in the hunt. This is the recent situation with Professor Henry Louis Gates, Jr breaking into his own home.

Never argue with an idiot - they'll bring you down to their level then beat you with experience.
To be honest, any further discussion about the meat of the matter here would probably violate the "no politics" rule.
I don't think that this situation is at all political...how the press handled it on the other hand...
If I see a couple of guys forcing their way into a home you had better believe that they will be visited by the boys in blue. If I am seen "forcing" my way into my own home I would hope that more than one of my neighbors would see it and call 911. When the police arrive, I would simply do as they say and when asked what I am doing there I would tell them what I was doing...I was "stupid (word used intentionaly and that may be political) for locking myself out of my own home and I doublt that my neighbors would call 911 if they saw someone get the spare key from under the fake rock (not where mine is BTW) and proceed to calmly enter the house and turn on lights.
The actions that caused the call were EXACTLY actions that warrent a call to 911. PERIOD and this is regaurdless of what side of the isle you are on.
Pray for our nations leaders!
Story ends with free beer
(well, taxpayer-bought beer. So probably the most expensive beer ever. But free for the drinkers.)
