    That is a discussion for another day

    But the fact remains that dealing in drugs is an illegal act and one surrounded by violence and if you are going to date a drug dealer and have them sleeping in your house do not be surprised if violence follows them there. You place yourself in that danger.

    You mean "if you're going to move money and 'product' for a drug dealer, don't be surprised when YOUR ADDRESS IS ON A WARRANT."

    No, Kenneth Walker fired first. Both accounts from the officers and he himself admit that fact.

    He only was charged because his rounds entered the apartment next door... which he should not have done from outside the residence.

    The other two did nothing wrong. There won't be any more charges.

    Nope.

    But let's follow to where you wanted to go: Something to the effect of "well I pay to subsidize your insurance so I have a vested interest in your health so you can't smoke pot" unless I miss my guess.

    You can have that rationale when you have the government setting your diet for you.

    I forsee the leftists riots rats providing Team Trump with lots of priceless campaign material in Louisville tonight, and it won't cost Trump a penny. It will all be given for free.

    Yes as I said his shots went into the other apartment and THAT was the recklessness. No charges for any of the shots that hit Taylor or for the actions of those two officers. City officials and law enforcement obviously knew this beforehand and were making preparations for the possible if not probable violence that will happen tonight. Looks like they have been doing a pretty good job of keeping the streets clear for now with about 2 dozen arrest so far.

    So how does this work? Do we get 2/3 of the riot we would normally get? No riot? Full riot?

    Actually, the question was offered to get an answer. There wasn't a direction there. You said no. I respect your honesty. there are a lot who wouldn't be so forthright.

    No knock warrants right or wrong are currently legal so the officers involved committed no crime.

    "In addition, the search warrant said Jamarcus Glover used Taylor’s address as his home address and was observed by police picking up a package from her apartment in January before driving to a “known drug house.”

    Eh so far downtown has been quiet. Lots of police.

    Bardstown Rd might burn to the ground tonight, though.

    (Right about where the Walmart Superstore is located, ironically)

    I heard the charges read on the radio, seem perfectly fine. If anyone riots, they should be treated like criminals. If anyone peacefully protests, they should be protected. but throw one brick, light one fire and it is no longer peaceful despite what CNN will tell the minions.

    Someone encounters intruders in their house at dark o'clock. Expecting someone to analyze what the intruders are wearing before exercising self defense options seems like asking them to give up any effective self defense.

    Also, don't most of these would be ninja cops wear black BDUs as their "uniform?" And if someone say wants an FBI windbreaker, sweatshirt, etc. these are sold at vendor stands at tourist locations in Washington DC.

    There is no justification for the fact that over 80,000 SWAT raids are conducted a year in the United States. The war on drugs has turned into a war on Constitutional rights.

    The rioters were organized in advance. These people were hoping the cops got off just so they can riot and destroy things.

    It is too extreme. We need protection from those in power. Who get off on robbing us of personal liberty. No biz of a govt dictating what a free man may consume!!

    Far more cops are killed in the line of duty than innocent people by cops.

    Simple statistics says your perspective is misguided.

    And let the criminals hide or destroy the illegal narcotics or prepare for an ambush creating a hostile and dangerous environment.

    No false dichotomy. Either its by surprise or not.
