“This is a situation where the response of police would be questioned almost any way they decided to go…If a person has weapons and police attempt to force entry, that’s dangerous to officers. They might have to use deadly force to disarm someone with an automatic weapon, and that could lead to the same outcome the officers were trying to avoid.”
