>>39399000>has never heard a flashbang before
It's a very temporary effect. And, if you're in the room the flashbang went off in, you're not going to be shooting anybody, hence the flashbang. God gave you eyes for situations like that.>>39399006
See >>39399025>>39399011>How exactly am I going to tell a bunch of home invaders in body armor apart from police when they're kicking my door in
Don't piss off the mafia? This is not a problem for most people. The instances of large groups of well equipped criminals breaking into homes are thankfully quite low.> if I'm somehow magically blind during all of this
Ah, you're retarded, okay. It's inferring you can't see since you seem to believe the only way to identify a police officer is by sound.>Do you think home invaders have never claimed to be police?
Context clues are important. Again, if you're being invaded by a dozen heavily armed tactical criminals, you have issues beyond the scope of your average person and should probably wire your entire house with explosives and napalm.>>39399026
They were there to arrest the guy, collecting evidence is secondary. And, of course, they knocked on the door three separate times before entering, which no-one responded to. Had they answered the door, they would have asked nicely to come in and presented the warrant, but nobody answered the door, which means they check to see if the reason nobody is answering is because:
a. Their perp is hiding in there
b. He might have taken hostages when he realized the police are there (and people absolutely do stupid shit like that over small drug crimes, because war on drugs)
c. Nobody is home
This is important because if b is happening, and someone gets hurt, it was caused by police action and they are therefore potentially liable in civil court.
If your next question is going to be why they knocked on his door in the first place to issue a warrant instead of waiting outside his house for him to show up I'll direct you to >>39399025
