The take away there is don't have an alarm company and know your target. We have a long driveway so LEO's would drive up to the house. I always check what the vehicle is before answering the door. Unless I see it's an officer then we talk thru the door and I don't stand directly behind it but off to the side behind cover.

As a side note that was a bright light the Deputy had.

My only two encounters with our present county sheriffs was them waiting at my gate and asking permission to enter. If someone knocks on my door, especially my back door, I greet them with gun in hand.

Just watched. My opinion is that there was a serious lack of communication. The home owner was an idiot, putting himself in view, and drawing down on someone who was still outside the home. He obviously couldn't idenify a target, the uniformed deputy. Supposedly the alarm company and 911 both called the cell phone. Why didn't anyone answer?

The officer was overly agressive. He could have angled out of the line of fire. Maybe waited for backup. Used the lights on the cruiser to clearly show it was LE. Did he have a bullhorn to communicate at a distance?

I think both sides made some bad mistakes.

I can't believe the homeowner was directly in front of the door & in full view of the window.

Great take away Bcatter.

Also, I don't recall the Sheriff securing the firearm after asking where the gun was.

I wouldn't like the front door area not having curtains, doesn't anyone walk around their home half nekked? LOL

Did anyone else find the wife's behavior odd? At first she was hysterically yelling, then sat calmly on the stairs and never flinched. She never tried to address her husband's wounds, hold his hand or call 911, call a relative/neighbor/friend. I found it very weird behavior.

Now for the conspiracy...

The homeowner claimed not to have any type of security, but someone sent a needing medical assistance call to the security company.

Did the wife make this call to set her husband up for this situation? "Honey wake up I hear something downstairs." She knew that he'd grab his gun and go downstairs to investigate. When 911 & security company called back she didn't answer knowing the police would respond.

Her behavior has my radar up. LOL I'd love to know who's phone that call came from.

The homeowner should file a federal civil rights lawsuit, and that is my take away from this.
