ive told my own daughter not to "bang" on the door like that, all it means is loud forceful strike unless you know and can show it factually means something else?
you seem to want it to have some type of merit, therefor you want the official report to say something else or just had to add banging, why?
the answer is its meaningless but since the professionals are neutral and educated they use knock because there was no evidence of attempted forced entry (meaning marks on the door etc) there has been no statments made by the home owner about trying to gain access etc.
He didnt talk to the media they didnt even know who he was in the beginning. Did that come from some official report? do you have a link and quote? where does banging come from? did he say that to police, where you there?
So they use knock based on evidence and the home owners words that they know of.
even more evident of your current bias and or lack of being objective is why did you add "politie" to the word knock?
than say "open hand pounding"? seems you are trying to paint a picture based on the opinion in your mind and not reality
knock has no description it could be violent, it could be polite?
just a question, why did you feel the need to change that word based on nothing official?
again my list is based off of the known officially reports facts not fantasy or colorful suggestive language, could they change, yes, but for now they are current
