    I can see that some people think that the FWPD situation and its resolution is the preferred way to deal with the matter. What I can NOT see is how any rational person would have that preference.
    He said they were on scene for about five minutes -. So less than an hour's worth of time, including both officers and dispatch staff. But point well taken.

    It also impressed me with how simple his approach was - and how much safer. He went to the house armed with the name of the resident, and approached the house in a defensible position with another officer in a position to provide cover. He knew the man was likely home (from his car), and if he encountered someone else, could have asked them for the name. If something was out of place (for example, a stolen car), he could have taken a different approach.

    Again, it was a series of costly rookie mistakes, and an overly aggressive approach, that cost the resident her life in Fort Worth. It will be interesting to see how much is due to the officer just not being in the right job, and how much is due to inadequate training / supervision.

    Actually, if you will check back to Post 740 you will see that that is a false statement.

    I have absolutely no idea what "apdst" has in mind - regardless of what "apdrt" posts.

    Because I wanted to know.

    They would, indeed, have been relevant had they been obtained using identical methodologies. They weren't.

    Because someone else thought that the information was pertinent (for some unfathomable reason) but didn't have it. I also pointed out that the information was (possibly the 'best available") unreliable due to difference in methodologies.

    However, I do thank you, for your contributions to this thread. I always enjoy seeing where random and unrelated thoughts can lead.
    I was told that the best things for me were to eat healthy foods, walk up hills, stop smoking cigars, and cut out drinking Scotch.
    With my record, I don't _DESERVE_ the best. What's second best?

    Interesting "NetNik" you have.

    I know that this doesn't actually apply to you personally, but did you know that there is an "aberration" that involves a desire to be subjugated and forced to undergo humiliating experiences.

    Such an "aberration" might possibly explain the words and/or deeds of some people.
