Don't be a jackass. These officers didn't get up in the morning and say, "Hey, I want to be in a shootout with a law abiding citizen." The dispatcher gave them bad information, and they went to the wrong house, based on the description that they were given. They have a neighbor, claiming to know the homeowner, says they are not home, a suspicious stranger doing unusual things and loitering on the property, recent history of burglaries in the neighborhood, and then the police encounter an open door... it's called exigent circumstances and they have a reasonable reason to believe criminal activity is afoot. If a dog attacks them in the process, and that dog is capable of causing serious injury or death, they are allowed to use deadly force. They don't have to stand around and get mauled.
This was a series of unfortunate events, and the cop haters turn off their intellect and just start hating.
Rabid. Should they have knocked? If there was a dog in the house, and it started barking only when they got close to the house, isn't that evidence that a burglar was not in that particular house?
I say this doesn't pass the smell test. Common sense was not being used by these LEOs, and unfortunately it usually ends up in some kind of death because of who and what they are.
I feel for all LEOs nowadays. It seems that they are constantly being confronted by criminals who feel empowered by the BLM movement and our 'president', among others. They are humans as well, and they want to protect their lives and almost all, I believe, want to protect the innocent. Maybe they need to step back a bit and gather their wits, so to speak, and make sure blunders like this never, ever, occur again.
Fullmetal in this exact screw up knocking and waiting would have been a wrong choice. If there had been an intruder the police could have gotten the homeowner killed. Once inside they should have shouted out.
The suspect was described as a man in his early-to-mid 20s with short hair…
…never would have pictured the perp from this original description

…if just the mentioning of a generic “God” is the “establishment” of a State Religion, then obviously the State Sponsored absence of the mentioning of a generic “God” is even more the ESTABLISHMENT of a State Religion…
Generic "God" is the endorsement of monotheistic religion over polytheistic (Hindu, Wiccan), atheistic (Buddhism), and non-religion (atheist). The lack of mention of a generic god could be the use of an older motto - E Pluribus Unum.
The Constitution does not contain the mention of a generic god, does it establish a state religion? There is a very big difference between secular and atheistic, I suggest you learn it.

(On the other hand,…I heard yesterday that a single tweet from LaBron James is worth over $100,000…imagine Mr. Ailes asking Trump to tweet about Megan just to get her #s up after this “vacation”)

…propaganda to make the American “Pedestrian” population feel better
'In the battle between sex and sex with contraception, sex often wins'
'A decline in teen sexual activity and better contraception use'
'Teen Use of Morning-After Pill Skyrocketed'
Am I the only one to see the irony of this ridiculous article...?!
Sex (without contraception) often wins = better contraception use...
Teen Use of Morning-After Pill Skyrocketed = a decline in teen sexual activity...
Yep...sounds like propaganda to me (for the dumbed-down masses).
