he still refused to leave, saying it was his property--he owned it.

If it was on his property the cops should obey his request.

On what grounds?

You two definitely have outlined the two poles of the argument. Guess we'll just have to see how this unfolds.

The article said that the standoff was near the Unser's property, not on it.

Wow! That's the kind of post that keeps libertarians with 2% of the vote. Police don't need a warrant if they have probable cause, and a guy running around with a sawed off shotgun is probable cause. They can also order people to a safe area when they're putting themselves in danger, and yes, it's all settled case law.

I've even been known to have a guy dragged out of a burning building who was going back in to rescue his cat. Yes, we rescued the cat, and no we didn't have to do CPR on it.

Obey never. Request maybe but...

The scene of a serious crime is always controlled by authorities for all kinds of logical reasons. No one has a right to ignore lawful orders made by legal authorities at the scene.

"Don't you know who I am" tells me all I need to know about who to support in this incident. And those words tell me everything about the person mouthing those words.
