Why did the victim point his weapon at the deputies? I can understand bringing your gun to the door when getting some unexpected loud knocking at 1:30 in the middle of the night but was there not enough light to visibly see the deputies' uniforms? I'm assuming the guy would've looked through his peep hole or a side window or maybe opened his door only just partially to see what he could see. I'm trying to think what would I do if this happened to me. I imagine I wouldn't open the door until I made them identify themselves in one of those yelling conversations through the door. Given that they didn't have a warrant, I think (hope) a ram wouldn't come into play if i refused to open the door. I wouldn't be concerned about cooperating after I was convinced it would be safe to do so. Until then, they better prove themselves to me or bring their ram.
