"A heavily armed citizenry is not about overthrowing the government; it is about preventing the government from overthrowing liberty. A people stripped of their right of self defense is defenseless against their own government." -source
First of all, since this is a forum with names and no faces we have no idea what your true lifestyle is really like.
However, if you are truly a genuine law abiding citizen who never so much as gets a speeding ticket or "rolling stop sign ticket" in your daily lives, have no idea what a traffic stop is like because you've never been pulled over before type of citizen, then you are highly unlikely to be a target of LEO's.
Likewise, if you have no children who are in the drug scene and are honor role students who have never given you any problems, then again, you are unlikely going to be a target of LEO's.
That leaves the possibility of them getting your house by mistake. So, who are your neighbors? You have dirtbags living next door? People you know who have had run in's with the law? Neighbors or people on your block who you suspect deal, or use drugs or manufacture meth? If the answer is NO, then you are probably unlikely to have real LEO's kick in your door even by accident.
Therefore, by probability, if some group of heavily armed people all of a sudden start trying to kick in your door yelling "Police-Search Warrant" then you may be pretty safe to believe you are victim of a "Fake LEO Home Invasion Squad."
If you have neighbors on your block or directly on either side of you or across the street, who you know are problem people, then you may want to use an increased level of caution before you engage the folks who claim to be LEO's coming in... Because there is a chance, they may have gotten your house by mistake.
Bear in mind, if they are the real police and you start shooting, it will likely be your last stand on earth... Because they won't flee... they will kill you... and it really won't matter anymore whether they were at the wrong house or not. Right?
So, if you open fire, and find yourself still alive in the aftermath and no more "police" in your house.... Then it was probably a Fake LEO Home Invasion Squad and you're likely to get a medal for surviving.
"The gun is the great equalizer... For it is the gun, that allows the meek to repel the monsters; Whom are bigger, stronger and without conscience, prey on those who without one, would surely perish."
Home invaders pretending to be cops, Or Cops at the wrong address. I think you would have a bettor chance with home invaders. Sometimes the police can get an address wrong. If a team of police bust your door in and you have a gun in hand you will not survive. This is in stone. Don't kid yourself on this one. At least with a home invader or 3 or 4 you at least have a chance.
I've also been a uniformed officer looking for addresses knocking on doors for whatever reason at 0 dark thirty with unsuspecting homeowners answering the door.
The biggest thing you can do is alleviate the annoyance of not having your address clearly marked. This doesn't matter much for a search warrant, but it does matter for day to day stuff. Tiny letters above your garage door or on your porch is not clearly marked. The address marked on your mailbox when there is a bank of mailboxes or it is across the street is not clearly marked. Sounds simple, but it could save your life... or at least save you a headache.
Second, if their is an LEO knocking on your door, they should have a uniformed officer with them. Take the time to learn and know your local LEO's uniforms.
If in doubt, there is no harm in calling to see if the LEO is legit or not.
A real LEO will have both a badge and ID card. If both are not there, its a no go.
I'm not sure why "No knock" warrants even entered this conversation, but if one is properly done at your location, don't worry. It will be largely over before you know it. It will be obvious that it is real LEO, and there will be lots of them, not just a few goofs.
"Just blame Sixto"
I have been on lots of ride alongs over the years but have never seen any innocent people victimized by LEOs like I have read lately. Being a LEO used to mean protect & serve not victimize & cover-up.
If I misunderstood your comment I apologize.
