I can not believe in 25 seconds the police can break into your house
and kill you and say it is justified. It does not seem like a reasonable time for anyone to realize what is going on.

Just suppose the police went to the wrong house. Would they still be justified. I'm afraid the answer is yes.

Is there really a thin blue line in Virginia

It would appear there is a thin blue line in Virginia.

Suppose the police go to the wrong house would they still be justified? I'm afraid the answer is yes.

Yhank you for your take!!!

Our home was one of the first ones broke into in Dinwiddie. They didn't take much an Ipod that was my daughters only christmas present, a gun and pills. It may not have been much but it is still a shame that you work so hard to get what you have and someone can just come in and take what they want. You think of your home as a safe place, the thoughts that run through your head after are terrible especially at night when you hear something outside. I also hope they break into the wrong house and end up on the lawful side of a gun.

Wow, are we safe nowhere? I have been fortunate thus far, as I have lived in PG County for 21 years with no problems. I have ALWAYS felt safe as I am way back off the hard surface; however, I guess that does not make one safe. Come to think of it - there are no neighbors close enough to hear anything. Hopefully no one will "find it."

I thought I was a member of the community but now that I have filled out the application - I guess that must make it official (smile).
