    OK................ballance of this as I got it, again 3rd party.
    Was a legit township LEO came in cleared the house and left......yeah, left her shaken. The reason for the alarm going off was undetermined as was the noise outside.........could have been due to the windy conditions and cold here lately.....Still some show for a single older age woman alone at home.

    !

    In my house he wouldn't have dared walk in because there is no way I'm going to get between the door and my dogs. Had this LEO tried to barge in my home with a mask on and a gun drawn, I'm afraid he'd have been puppy chow.
    And had he gotten past my fanged friends, he'd had a 12 GA in his nose.

    She should have had 911 on the phone before she ever opened the door.

    His Supervisors need to sit this dude down and talk to him. I too am suspicious of this story. I am thinking the LEO was casing the joint (or playing peeping tom) and got caught by the alarms. Forcing him to play his Badge trump card.

    He should have known no BG's were inside the house with the dogs raising hell.

    Something’s fishy.

    Can LEO search you home with out a warrant or your consent?

    Maybe I missed something here, but this account just does not sound right to me.

    There is a lot missing from this story. If it does not make sense, it probably is untrue or has a few missing links.

    Cop made a bad tactical error. You look like a thug and you have a gun, you barge into the house and don't announce you're LE/identification until afterwards.

    Nobody would make it that far into my house if all I knew was they had a black ski mask on and a gun, regardless of whether it was pointed at me or not.

    There was no search of the home without consent. If story is taken at face value, the officer responded to the circumstance of a crime apparently in progress. She opened the door and let him in. That isn't an illegal search or even a search.

    Hopyard:
    I agree.........what most aren't getting her is IMO, older age women living alone do not think the way we do in this forum. She was obviously taken back by the pace of what happened at night and her living alone there.......inexperience, lack of SA and no means of self-defense.........Strike 1, 2 and 3............your out.

    There in front of her is a man in a dark coat with a ski mask pulled down over his head and face with a gun in his hand pointed in her direction.....he opens the door and just walks in and says look out.......She scared to death almost literaly.

    Turns out it was a cop answering the alarm call.......she was still shaking this morining at work. She asked my wife if she should call the P.D. and tell them how freightened she was due to his appearance and no warning.......the mask and gun.....is that beautiful or what ?
    And what is the REST OF THE STORY? What did he do after entering the home, etc ....

    Good Day.

    Bingo! A video feed would indeed be the best solution. Back when I thought my neighborhood was crime free, I had a triple-pane full length semi-frosted front door installed. It looks great and it costs me an arm and a leg! I can see through it but the people outside can see me too! I’d prefer a video slaved to my Mac, and my entrance area is set-up for it but I’m now sorta financially lazy.

    Cops identify themselves as police officers even when in uniform here in Texas. I know this is Jersey but why would this one not identify himself when he had a mask pulled down over his face which made him appear as a threat?

    She needs motion lights and peep whole in door.

    If this is not a real cop or a cop gone bad, he most likely will be back.

    Why was he waring a mask and was he along and did he every show her his face or badge # ?

    It is possible that this could be the start of something very very bad!!!
    TO me it sounds like the cop tripped the alarm and was looking for something he didn't have...(a woman to play doctor with) or it was a BG that tripped the alarm realized it and then pretended to be the police as so he would not get attacked by the dogs JMO

    and no cop needs to wear a ski mask...because like another post says the last thing he would have seen was a flash.....

    Accuracy ALWAYS WINS! So carry what you can hit with.

    If you find yourself in a fair fight your tactics stink.
