TN: DEA Invades Wrong House, Confronts Armed Homeowner, no one killed or shot

"That's why it's really appalling that you would break in or you would execute a search warrant at the wrong house," he said.

"The fear is always that someone is going to get killed."

Renck was armed because he thought the SWAT team was an intruder.

"They had their guns drawn at me and I had my gun, trying to protect my family," he said.

"I didn't know what was going on. I was really close to being killed."

After 20 minutes, Renck said agents realized the problem and found the real suspect next door.

Kudos to the DEA agents who didn't shoot the armed homeowner to doll rags. We need more law officers like them.

Of course it would be better if dynamic entry raids were far less common; they are entirely too full of awful possibilities.

Some where in the US this year, cops chased a man, same truck as the perp, shot and killed the inocent man.
How screwed-up is that!

Almost as bad as an off duty cop pulled a gun on a man he thought stole a candy bar. He paid the clerk for it, but the trigger happy cop missed that!
