From a friend and experienced LEO in the LA area:Read the whole thing...then practice what John preaches!
“Last night, the home of one of our LAPD officers was invaded by three armed-robbery suspects. The officer was roughed up, and his car, a television set, and at least one of his guns was stolen.
Our officer, alone in his home at the time, answered a knock at his front door at 11:00pm. One of three suspects sprayed him with OC, and then all three pushed their way into the house. The selection of the house was random, so far as anyone knows.
It is fortunate indeed that the officer’s wife and family were not home at the time.
The newspaper headline read: ‘LAPD Officer is victim of robbery at home’”
The headline should have read: “Three home-invasion suspects shot to death as they attempted break-in at LAPD officer’s house”
It should be a standard rule: Don’t open your door to people you don’t know, particularly at night. When people come to your house claiming to need help, keep the door closed and locked as you tell them you are calling the police, who will provide them with all the help they need..."
