    I suppose he was supposed to climb out the fire escape ladder.

    The term copper is originally used in Britain to mean "someone who captures". (In British English the term Cop is recorded (Shorter Oxford Dictionary) in the sense of 'To Capture' from 1704, derived from the Latin 'Capere' via the Old French 'Caper'.

    Said intruder turned out to be unarmed. Officially, the homeowner was supposed to hide in his bedroom and call the cops at every bump in the night, and positively ascertain the intruder was an imminent threat to life before employing lethal force. So. flip on the light, and yell "hey dude on the stairs, ya'll got any guns? Cuz I do!" Which is, as I mentioned before, pretty much the exact same standard for use of lethal force outside the home. The law only removes, theoretically, the duty to retreat. In practice, if there's a good chance to escape, you're not facing a particularly imminent threat anyway.""OTOH, when an attempt was made at unarmed robbery when I was delivering pizzas, the officer taking the report asked if he had a weapon. I said, "no, I have a LTC and a .40. If he'd had a weapon, we'd be having this discussion next to his body." The officer snickered, and said "good!"

    Blame the Chinese or Google (or you misspelled it once and it remembered).
