Put the remote down before answering the door

Just to avoid  any confusion.

Take heed from the shooting death of a Georgia teen Chrstopher Roupe by a local officer.

As reported by WSB-TV:
A female police officer told GBI investigators that Roupe pointed a gun at her when he opened the door. 
“It just doesn't add up,” said Cole Law who is representing the Roupe family.
Law said Roupe was about to watch a movie. 
“We don't know where that statement came from. The eyewitnesses on the scene clearly state that he had a Wii controller in his hand. He heard a knock at the door. He asked who it was, there was no response so he opened the door and upon opening the door he was immediately shot in the chest,” Law said.
Probably best to put down any phone or kitchen utensil as well before answering a knock from a cop. Just to be safe.
