Surprised this one isn't getting more play...
No-knock comes through the door. Homeowner empties his weapon, assuming he's being jacked/invaded by Bad People. Three and a half years later, after a nine-hour jury deliberation, the man was facing 4 counts of aggravated assault against Po-Po.
No mention of whether LEO found anything in their search or if the guy faced any other charges.
All things considered, he was lucky to live through that night.
The jury came back Not Guilty on all charges. This sets a precedent.
There was a time in this country when masked, armed men coming into your home were shot, and your neighbors helped bury them the next day. Now, even in Texas, Home Invasions under color of law earn you years of courts and lawyers and harassment - if you live through the night.
Adapt or die.
