If he saw that they had weapons prior to opening the door, then he should have called 911. If he just opened the door to them with gun aimed at whoever was there, then he wasn't defending himself as he was just threatening the person right outside his door. He had no true way to know the knocker's intention when he opened the door, so his proper response should not have been open the door, aiming a gun at whoever was out there. Either leave the door closed and ask for identification and/or call the police or, if you feel truly brave, open the door with gun in hand but not aimed at whoever is on the other side.
    The point I made earlier was concerning what was legal, not what he should have done or what a "proper response" might be. He had no intention of shooting anyone. He was trying to scare away whoever it was pounding on his door at 2AM.

    If they were concerned to the point of drawing guns, thinking there was an armed suspect in the apartment, I'd be hard pressed to think of a more stupid way to go about apprehending him than having a couple of officers knock on the door and wait for him to answer.

    How do you know what his intention was?

    So cops did not identify, interesting. You point a gun at anyone, you do run the risk of being shot. But if someone is on your property, threatening you and you pull a gun and they shoot you...they're murderers. That's the charge they'd face.

    Common sense. First, there are very few people in this world who would kill someone simply for knocking on the door at 2AM. I'm guessing that most of those people have a few screws loose and violent criminal records by the time they're 28. Second, if your intention is to shoot someone, you don't open the door a few inches and wave the muzzle of the gun around. That's the sort of thing you do when you want to scare someone away.

    This is all assuming the deputies report is accurate, which I highly doubt.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    LMAO says who? thats a total guess


    I love the dramatic talk to , weird the few people that think the cops did something wrong use the words POUNDING, BEATING etc on this door.

    When maybe they were simply knocking?

    Lets stick with what we know so far.

    I love when people just make stuff up, this is a pure quess on your part, theres just as much reason to GUESS he was pissed so sombeody was beating the daylights out of his door so he was gonna teach them a lesson. just as much evidence and equally as silly.

    yet it happens every day and the vast majority of people dont open their door point guns at people LMAO

    no matter how much people try to spin this it wont, unless more info comes out

    Its common to look for a suspect by knocking on doors, time dont matter, whether the suspect is there doesnt matter, whether they have thier guns drawn because this suspect might be dangerous doesn't matter, its still COMMON and NORMAL

    its NOT common to open the door without asking who it is and simply point a gun at the person(s) on the outside.

    So being objective and per the story, these cops arent at fault
