What next, sue his own PD for sending him out on a DV call by himself?
The whole notion is absurd.
No 911 service should rely upon the caller's assessment of conditions and risk levels - or absence of same. Callers are frequently themselves compromised and/or culpable. Consider a 'detrimental reliance' passed down the line' that would endanger LEO safety.
DV generates LODD. Every department knows this and provides training to address the variables. All officers must assume critical information has been left out and prepare conservatively. Proper response is what taxpayers pay for.
This is a highly frivolous law suit.
See both sides of the arguement. Officers often get sued for doing their jobs properly because 'use of force aint pretty'. Maybe a pre-emptive stricke by the deputy in this case.

To quote a remark from the first post of this story I hope he sets a precedent the will send the shyster barristers running to the hills each time a grieved party shows up to sue the pansy police officer.
This one might be interesting to watch and see which direction it may go....
Pansy. Maybe the judge will show the good sense to throw this case out. And maybe the deputy will have the good sense to resign and never pin on a badge again. You wear body armour and a gun and are responding to an assault call, why do you need someone to tell you this might be dangerous?
This article leaves me speechless.
