Sure glad that the on scene news reporter was able to be so noticibly "objective"... Geez....

It's called exigent circumstances, it allows them to enter a home to check on a person's safety. Just because he was in the military doesn't mean he isn't a wife beater. The Air Force guy who sexually assaulted the lady in the parking lot must be innocent too since he was in the military.

The guy is an Adam Henry who has been watching too many Pollywood versions of the real world. He admitted to a 415 PC!

I totally agree with you JoJo. We are required once called to investigate a domestic. The laws in some states almost require an arrest.

Oh forgot one thing. Who ya going to call, "Ghost Busters"

People, when the police come to your home, resonable people don't resist them. It appears to me that this "subject" is not one of those resonable people. If he had just spoke to police when they arrived instead of being some "I'm a GI, you have no right to come into my house" ass, none of this would have happened. Well, except maybe going to jail for domestic! My experience is that it has to get pretty "ugly" before the nieghbors call the police.

Did the TV "reporter" work for the plaintiff's attorney? What a smear!

One of the necessary but distasteful parts of our job. Both side of this story are not represented, but have merit. What should have been said to the public and Mr. Wood, is that his view might be right (even though it's not in this case) but the proper course of action is to comply and make his argument in court.

I would have just went hands on... idk about the taser app... then again subject should have just been compliant...
