[But if officer safety were paramount...]
Try Plan A:
When [police] were satisfied they had enough evidence to make the arrest, they telephoned the man and asked him to step outside his [apartment].Crazy! It'll never work! But it did in Sweden.So why not try it? It'll work more often than not. If it doesn't work, you can always go to a barricade situation and/or Plan B. Sure you loose the element of surprise, but maybe the trade off is worth it. Wouldn't it be nice if Waco were best known for the Dr. Pepper Museum?
The suspect did as he was told and did not offer resistance.
