Another Great Idea

No-knock searches are in the news again.

So is robbers impersonating the police making a no-knock search.

The reason that the robbers are getting away with this tactic is the police are never punished for killing a resident who fights the break-in. So a law abiding homeowner will passively submit if he wants to live.

Here's my great idea: Make the police knock on the door, serve the warrant and do things peacefully until the suspects offer force.

Of course, real justice would be holding the state and its agents to a higher standard than the populace when using lethal force. Remember, when a cop pulls the trigger, it is not an individual person it is an agent of the state. And the state can better afford to lose discrete agents than an individual can lose their only life.
