French Fry I have one question about your story, did you ever see the guy with any type of firearm in his hands when you fired your rounds? I ask this because if he did not, the fact he was reaching in his trunk would not seem a justifiable reason to fire your weapon. I say this only because you were in a position to see down to where he was and you had the tactical advantge if he did try to shoot at you or any one else in your dwelling at the time. You had better cover and concealment by far. And tactically, occuping high ground is always an advantage. Maybe if you did not discharge your weapon that night, things would have been done differently by everyone. I do not where this happened, I do not know the local laws about firearms in your possesion. By no means am I saying what you did gives a a cop the right beat you or steal from you. I despise dirty cops more than anything, because they give all good cops a really bad name. Once a Police department looses the publics trust, things that used to be easy for their job just became so hard that to solve the simplest of crimes is 10 times as hard now.
