Castle Doctrine Kills Cops (and Other Humans)

via The Truth About Guns, where incredibly you can read any number of complaints about what this police chief has to say.  One thing they couldn't say is that the upper management of the police department is comprised of political appointees who don't really know what they're talking about. Tim Dolan worked SWAT for 27 years.


  1. Castle Doctrine matters neither one way nor the other when it comes criminals shooting at police.

  2. Yeah, right AztecRed. The only problem is we're talking about cops getting shot for knocking on doors. Everyone knows that's not condoned, but it happens because guys like you keep justifying the maximum extension of the sick "castle doctrine mentality."

  3. Cops get shot knocking on doors without the Castle Doctrine. That's an occupational hazard, not a legislation problem.

  4. You mean now the police will need to announce their presence, wear uniforms, and probably serve warrants during the day instead of the middle of the night.

    Sounds like a better standard of practice to me. The police will adjust and now do it right.

    Consider their have been cases where police have picked the wrong address. This is a good thing and will probably save the lives of police officers in the future.
