A compliance officer is not a law enforcement officer. He is one step above garbage collector. He illegally entered her house. He needed to be fired and prosecuted for B & E . He didn't get what he deserved, luckily for him. The city owes her big-time.
Grass too long? You've got to be kidding me.

Yes it might just be that certain types of folks like to nit pick how other people live. It might also be that many towns go looking for these people and hire them for just that reason. Around here when hired they are told that they must bring in enough in fines to cover their own salaries and make money for the town. else they would be terminated. The last cop my little town hired was strongly given that same impression at the meeting when he was hired.
Sometimes the individual we like to blame is only doing what the city that hired him instructed him to do.
Call me greedy and heartless. But, I want everyone involved to go down when something like this happens. I want it all.
Between my dogs and my Mossburger....... Mr. Compliance officer would've been in a 'bad' way.
Lock your DOORS! Hopefully the homeowner learned that lesson.

-Blackstone’s Commentaries 145–146, n. 42 (1803) in District of Columbia v. Heller, 554 U.S. 570 (2008)Americans understood the right of self-preservation as permitting a citizen to repel force by force
when the intervention of society... may be too late to prevent an injury.
Am I off base here - or does the article make it seem like the c.officer was fired for lying to his supervisor, not for the actual illegal entry? If that is truely the case, then there is more wrong here than the original infraction IMO.
