The intruder is a cop - or group of cops misdirected to your address. you kill one or two.

If you live after being shot in your bed , you will be put on trial for killing a cop, convicted and sent to prison for life if you are lucky, given the needle if not.

 

The question I pose, is how, in the middle of the night when you are sound asleep, and someone is coming into your house are you suppose to make that judgement call ?

Something here seems to be missing.

 

No way if I was on jury would I convict a person defending themselves from a no knock to the wrong address a policeman was killed.   Not sure if it would go to court either.  Nothing against the police but what would they do if the tables were turned someone was braking into their home.

You're absolutley right. .Seeweed's logic is tainted by his dislike of the police.
