The old man was alone in the house. The cops were in a hurry to go out for a few beers.<quoted text>
How would he have lived anyway? He was shooting through the door; that made the cops go all Rambo. Grandpa went nuts; someone call the cops. Period. Otherwise, maybe Grandpa may have killed his family members.
BTW, did you read that Iowa may grant gun carrying to blind people?
When the cops call in SWAT, they are calling for the executioners, trained killers. Is that what taxpayers want?
