Re: SC: Bodycam of LEO shooting homeowner through front door.

I want to be fair to the officer but if he lied about the door opening that is problematic. But based only on video and statements in the article,
If I was sitting on a grand jury I don't believe I would indict the officer on criminal charges. Especially as we can't see if the victim pointed his weapon because flashlight washes him out in the video. If sitting on civil jury for damages, I would be inclined to find in favor of the home owner. I think this falls more under possible negligent actions than criminal.

There is a lot to learn from this for LEO's and those of us who think our home is being broken into.
