Another reason I prefer to "hunker down"
If you've got a home invasion going on... it might be best to stay in the bedroom, door locked, 911 called, and wait for LEO.
We don't know the full story here, but... LEO shoots unarmed home owner
Don't know why the LEO shot the homeowner... maybe LEO thought homeowner was a "brazen crook."
"I'm the homeowner here chump, I called you! I ain't gettin' down on the floor, you go find the guy that broke in!"
Officer shot who he thought was the perp to stop a felony in progress?
I do know this... I got an attempt to break in... If I ain't in the bedroom, I'm headed there... and so is anyone in the house with me... I'm reasonably fortified in there, I have access to a hardline phone and a cel phone. I have my HD weaponry in the bedroom...
I'll communicate with 911
I'll stay on line until LEO arrives
I'll request a pass phrase before I open the door for LEO.
