This exchange is caught on guy’s security system:
Cop 1: We need you to step outside. One of your neighbors says that you pointed a gun at them, and you need to step outside and give us a statement to prove your innocence.
Guy: Uh, I didn’t do anything and I can answer your questions through the door just fine.
Cop 2: Why are you being so confrontational?
Guy: My entire property is on camera. I can prove I did nothing. Hang on. (closes door)
Cop 2 (says to other cop): He definitely pointed a gun. Well, it was that or a flashlight.
Cop 1: We don’t have enough to charge him.
Cop 2: I don’t care. I’m gonna charge him with something if we don’t.
If I were a juror in this case, I would vote not guilty if a defense attorney played this video in court. Watch closely:
I will repeat: Never talk to the police. They aren’t there to help you. All you can do by speaking to them is give them the evidence they need in order to arrest you. Tell them to go away. Oh, and having plenty of cameras around doesn’t hurt.
Just don’t resist them if they decide to use force. We all know that many cops can’t wait to get their violence on. Say nothing. Hire the best lawyer you can afford. Spare no expense- it’s better to go into bankruptcy than it is to spend the rest of your life in jail. Let the lawyer talk for you. But above all, SHUT THE FUCK UP.

You’re never in more danger than when the cops are around.

Saw that video some weeks back.
Start with Don’t answer the gorram door!!!
Don’t talk through it, don’t open it.
If they have a warrant, they’re coming in anyways.
If they don’t have a warrant, they’ll go away when their knuckles get bloody and sore.
Literally, just let them suck it.
Unless you called them (and sometimes even if you did), they’re not there to help you. Except into handcuffs.
This lesson should be beaten into people before they get a driver’s license.
Even if you beat a rap, the arrest – even a total b.s. one like that cop-chick in the vid was ready to hand out – stays on your record everywhere, forever. Every time you apply for a job. Every time someone does a background check.
Refuse to play.
But if you STFU, before, during, and after, they eventually have to just walk away, 98% of the time.
There’s also nothing illegal about having a laminated card that says in big block letters:
“Please go away. I have nothing to say to you. I’m not in any danger or distress, and I didn’t call you. I refuse to answer any questions, I always refuse unless my attorney is present, and you’re on live video. Please leave. And have a nice day – Somewhere Else.”
Slide it under the door, through the mail slot, or tape it up in the window. Walk away, and don’t say a word.
Go plug in your headphones, put them on, and turn the music up. And don’t say even a single word.
You have no duty whatsoever to respond to anything they say or do, including cop-knocking your door.
They’ll f**k off soon enough.
If you just can’t shut up, call 9-1-1 (the calls are recorded) and tell them you’ve asked the people wearing badges and beating on your door to go away, you don’t wish to answer any questions, and you want them to leave. You don’t have to answer the dispatcher’s questions beyond that either, including not needing to identify yourself in any way (the most I would give up is “I’m the owner/legal resident at this address”), and should not volunteer anything more. Say nothing more than asking that they be told to leave, say thank you, and hang up.
Everything else is just a fishing expedition, and you’re the catch of the day.
No one talks themselves out of handcuffs.
They only talk themselves into them.

I used to have a neighbor that frequently had police at his door, he NEVER ANSWERED their knock. I spoke with several of the cops and was told they could not do anything, no warrant equals no entry. One day another neighbors pitbull got in the first sasswipes back yard and commenced killing his dog. The cops could not go into that yard to save the dog. A woman cop threatened the city animal dispatcher with arrest if an animal control officer wasn’t sent immediately, that dude CAN ENTER YOUR YARD without a warrant. But not the house, that sasswipe never answered the door, nothing was ever done.

SCOTUS has drawn a hard 4th Amendment line around domiciles, which even includes tents in national parks.
When everything you touch will be thrown out of court if you bollocks up the job, and their supervisors will give you a double ration of sh*t for doing that, it focuses their minds tremendously.
Unless they burst into the wrong house and kill someone by mistake.
Then they just say “Sorry” and dare you to sue them.
The victim, unfortunately, is still dead.
Anyone who hasn’t made “Cop-proof door” a home improvement priority is behind the power curve on things.
Think 4x4s in plumbing pipe L-brackets across the door. Also not a bad idea to bolt some steel strapping along the hinge side to prevent 12-ga master keys from being used to gain entry.
