Said it before, saying it now, I’ll say it again. Nothing illegal going on here. If some shitbag is running from the cops and decides to dive through my window, I expect the cops to do everything short of cannon fire to follow him in. (Shrapnel, I hear, isn’t fun.)
This is more about personal righteousness, it seems. Sit back and consider the “what if’” and how likely they are to apply to you. Sure, it could affect you, but how likely is it?
