The cops bust into a home without notice, shooting a man who comes out into the hallway with a golf club to see what the fuss is about.   But it’s OK, because the officer who shot the man was following proper procedures.

In the Odgen incident, Sgt. Troy Burnett was found to have handled the situation appropriately, [County Attorney] Smith says. “This was a split-second decision. He acted according to his training.”

And it’s certainly no reason to allow homeowners to shoot illegal intruders in self-defense.
