Today, I was sitting at home when the police knocked on my door. They came inside, sat me down and told me that both my parents died in a car crash tonight. I started to cry, but about 10 minutes later, I find out they had the wrong person. I feel bad for the other guy. FML

In what kind of corrupt 3rd world country do you live?

OP: “We had an encounter with an officer that, though mistaken, was friendly. We went our separate ways without quarrel and everything turned out ok.” You: “YOU DID IT COMPLETELY WRONG. YOU SHOULD HAVE MADE THIS ENCOUNTER AS DIFFICULT AS POSSIBLE BECAUSE ‘JUST IN CASE’ REASONS.”

When police knock on your door,the best thing to do is lock the door behind you,step outside and ask "Name and im going to need to see your badge/badge number" -write these down -if they dont not comply to that tell them to get off your property "what reason do you have to be here?" "do you have a warrant" if they say no you can refuse to let them in and by all means you should. If they have a warrant, record everything on camera. When they toss your place and break shit looking for something they didn't find, you want that on camera.

That's the main reason officer encounters end up going badly, because people want to make things as difficult as possible, and not comply with the officer's requests and commands. It's better to just do what they ask, and if needed report it through the proper channels later. Curbside is not the place to try to hold court!

Actually that is how you should be handling it. Just like that person said to do. Don't let them in without a warrant. Record them. Etc...

How is any of that the correct response to a somber looking cop saying something like "Can we come in? We need to talk/have some bad news for you."

What are you doing wrong in your life that you have to worry about things like that??

Not a damn thing. But I know my rights as a human being. Sad that others don't realize this as well.

How is this even relevant to the post? The police didn't trash their home. They had good intentions.

I'm guessing America.

just because these cops had good intentions doesn't mean all interactions with cops will go well, it's best to be cautious.

Dude, that’s really good advice- for almost any other situation involving the cops. In this situation they were there to inform him OF THE DEATH OF HIS PARENTS. They weren’t there to break shit or raid his house or arrest him. It was a house call to notify him of tragedy.

I suppose you’re not expecting much of an inheritance.
