Re: Should the law get away with these things because they are the law?
I was about 8yrs old. Sound asleep, as was my family. It was late at night. I’m startled by my mom as she wakes me and my sister and tells us to follow her into my parents bedroom. In my half awake state I didn’t notice the small 32 pistol in her hand. I ask her what’s wrong and she tells us to lay our heads down and go back to sleep.
Now rewind back about 5 minutes or so before my mom wakes me and my sister.
My parents are awakened to a knock at our front door. My dad gets up (With his 44 long colt in hand). He opens the door…no one is there. On the way back to bed, there is another knock at the door. He opens the door again…no one is there. As he is walking to the back door (he’s going to slip around and check things out), he hears the knock at the front door again. He calls out to my mom to get me and my sister. He slips out the back door and is walking cautiously around to the front of the house. As he is nearing the corner of the house near the front door he sees a shadow coming to the same corner. The person casting the shadow rounds the corner as the hammers is being pulled on the pistol now aimed at the ready. Now this pistol has two distinct clicks as the hammer is cocked. The person casting the shadow now is mere feet away from a cocked and aimed canon. Alarmed the caster of the shadow screams “WOA! POLICE! My dad lowers the canon to the officers relief, and asks, “what are you doing?”
Now what happened was this.
We just moved into a rent house, so it was under a different name for the residence. There was a family disturbance call for the same last name as the real owner of the house. (I really don’t know what happened to cause the address mix-up) The officer came to the door of our rent house and knocked. As he waited he heard his radio go off in his car. He left the door to go to his car. He saw my dad open the door, so he ran to catch him. He didn’t make it and the door was shut when he got to the door. He knocked…and his radio in the car went off again. He walked to get closer to hear the call. I guess he walked too far for my dad to see him in the dark when he opened the door. The officer went to the door again and knocked. He waited awhile the decided he would walk around the house…
Opps!!! “WOA! POLICE!
There are a lot of thankful people that night as to how the circumstance turned out, with no one getting hurt. (Just REALLY scared).
When I say... "I am a Christian", I'm not shouting "I'm clean livin."
I'm whispering "I was lost, Now I'm found and forgiven".
