Several years ago a home owner was shot and killed by a deputy that entered a home with an opened door. It was at night. The deputy entered the home and was confronted by the owner, armed with a fireplace poker. The deputy stated that he attempted to identify himself, before shooting the home owner. The deputy was cleared of wrongdoing.
Entering a home in the dead of night isn’t going to result in anything good.
This cop is a hitman.
