In Baltimore a story comes to us about robbers dressing as police officers, knocking down the door and then robbing the people in the home, three times so far. I heard a real police officer saying on the local radio, that people who have had no contact with police or have to worry about police, shouldn’t expect the police to break down their doors. I thought to myself, how ridiculous to have to explain that, and then I thought of Indiana and how you are not supposed to respond to “police” breaking into your home with deadly force. It would be these types of criminals who are “smarter” then the judges who passed that law. It would be these types of criminals that you would keep a gun in your home to respond to a break in with deadly force. Real Or Not, No One Should Be Breaking Into Your Home Period, It Creates A Deadly Situation
For the third time in a week, city police are investigating a home invasion in which men identifying themselves as police rushed into a home and bound and robbed its occupants.
“We are enormously concerned about this,” said police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi. “This is an egregious violation of the trust that individuals place in police, and we are working very hard to catch them.”
At about 6 a.m., police were called to the 2800 block of W. Garrison Ave. in North Baltimore, where the homeowners said they were sleeping when three men dressed in “police-like clothing” entered the room and placed them in plastic “flex cuff” handcuffs, officials said.
The men took an undisclosed amount of cash and electronics, including a video game system, before fleeing.
The incident comes on the heels of a similar home invasion last Monday, when a 32-year-old man was shot when three suspects pretending to be police entered his home in the 1500 block of Medford Road in Northeast Baltimore and bound him and his wife with flex cuffs.
Then, on Friday morning in the 1600 block of Elkins Lane in South Baltimore, a couple said they were bound and robbed by three men who identified themselves as police.
Guglielmi, the police department’s chief spokesman, said investigators are trying to determine whether the incidents are linked, or if others are copying the robbery method. “There’s no correlation based on geography,” he said.
The second amendment is there for protection of one’s self and family when the police cannot help them. It is dangerous when that right is limited or taken away by the same elected politicians who not only carry themselves but have body guards who do carry.
