I wasn't a sworn law enforcement officer with the legal discretion to enter a private residence without a court order. Also, I wasn't trained or equipped or licensed to perform life saving procedures on somebody in a medical emergency (much like our dubiously good Samaritan in this case). If he was genuinely concerned, he should have called somebody with the means to deal with such a situation. Had he called 911 before entering the house I might have more sympathy but since he didn't it looks like he was just looking to rob the place. Lying to his supervisor later makes it look like he was in the habit of doing this on a regular basis. In the surviellance video he was on the phone as he entered the house, and it was probably his buddy with the moving truck.that sucks then! you cared more about your job then someones life! what grounds do you think the cops had to enter that you didnt?
This guy's defense is that there was a funky smell. Do you believe he thought he was going to be the first man in history to bring somebody back from the dead who had been gone so long that they started to stink?
How much faith would you put in an employee who broke into somebody's house and then lied to you about it.
