“We have a warrant, sir, may we come in?”

The suspect DID have a shotgun.

How were the police to know that the response to their polite query would NOT have been a 12 gauge round exploding through the front door? A reasonable question.

If he has no prior violent offenses, or is not being arrested for a violent offense, they have to give him the benefit of the doubt. He’s still legally innocent, until after the trial, ya know.

“Dynamic entry” should be for a situation where life is immediately danger or for a known violent offender.

Uhhh, being a cop is a potentially dangerous job. If they're too much of pu$$ies to take that chance, they really shouldn't be on the force.
