I'm not sure if anyone besides Cheesecake faults the neighbor--they were, after all, trying to force open a jammed door (not just "fix" it). Although I do find it odd that the neighbor cared enough to call the police about suspicious activity but didn't care enough to know what the man looked like who lived there. The real problem was the police response.
