So anonymous strangers can break down the door and come at you for no good reason and you would greet them with smiles and danish. Just checking.

" body camera footage shows the officers yelling "Police! Search warrant" and "Get on the ******* ground!"

That is from your own post. So are you being deliberately argumentative?

- you ignore your own post that shows he knew they were police
- you avoided the practical implications that pulling guns on police officers and pointing it at them (is the height of stupidity and likely to get you killed).
- you didn't address any of the ways I mentioned one could deal with it.

If you want to taunt, feel free. It lacks meaning when you utterly ignore/ avoid the issues in your own post / ideas.

Are you looking for discussion about rights and wrongs, or just looking for agreement?

@vikorr,
I am saying when somebody breaks into your home like that you are not going to react as you would for a traffic stop. You are in a dangerous situation and your reactions are according and you are not your normal self. These cops know that and they are prepared to shoot going in. No knock entries are a violation of human rights.

I did ask if your issue was with no-knock search warrants. And mentioned there is argument for such.

@vikorr,
My main issue is the police pointing guns at innocent people.

@edgarblythe,
I've an issue with that as well.

Mind you - I also don't understand what it is like to be a police officer in the US, with the prevalence of gun violence. It seems around 458 officers were killed in 2021 https://www.dailywire.com/news/police-officer-deaths-surged-in-2021-report-shows. I've an inkling that I'd be very nervous as well, and I'm not given to nerves much.

Many of the videos I've seen of US Police Officers killing people show a lack of communications training too. That said - communications training when you are dealing with: suicidal people, mental health (in its many different forms), drug affected people (in the many different forms), arrogant/nasty/embecilic etc people...would require maybe 1-2 weeks per year per cop to accomplish a true improvement (perhaps more training time than that, but very unlikely to be less).

A single deputy now costs taxpayers $358,000 annually. There are 60 in the 2-square miles of West Hollywood.
