I never ever answer a knock on my front door. The door bell can ring all it wants to, I ain't answering. If I am not expecting company then no one should be out there. People can sit in my driveway and call me. Maybe I'll come out. Family and in-laws come to my back door and politely knock. Most times they still let me know they are coming. The front door is a no-man's land. Only the pizza man will come to my front door. And I am expecting him.
That's how I got arrested years ago. Answering the front door. I ordered pizza. Knock on the front door. I answered. I was arrested.
I was at a Krogers grocery store returning DVD's to a redbox. This is years ago, when they first came out, and redboxes were stationed inside of the store. I parked in a fire zone so that I could dart in and out. When I came out of the store there was a police officer on foot attempting to write me a citation. I drove off leaving him standing there flat-footed. He noted the license plate number.
I ordered pizza. Answered the knock on the front door. And was arrested.
BTW. I won that Court case. The crime scene took place on private property. The police officer may have been pissed, but he lacked jurisdiction (on private property).
