So by this logic, if someone steals from me, and runs into the police chief's home, I can blow it up trying to get my belongings back? Somehow I'm thinking that might not go over so well.

I also found this part of the ruling particularly disturbing:
The court acknowledged that this may seem “unfair,” but when police have to protect the public, they can’t be “burdened with the condition” that they compensate whoever is damaged by their actions along the way.
I think we all go by the belief that we are responsible for every bullet that leaves our gun, which means that we are liable if someone is killed or injured by a missed shot, etc. But this seems to imply the opposite, as least as it relates to our employees acting on our behalf (i.e. LEO's).
Goid point by the way!! Its kinda like those Red Flag laws if someone was to call in a Judge as a Threat you think they are going to follow through with it. Nope!!
