Think Cleveland. Just because two people say they were fighting doesn't mean they aren't lying, and that others are the ones being abused, but are behind the door.
We can each imagine any number of scary scenarios. But cops are required to base their judgements on their observations and the law, not their imaginations.

In the real world, why not come out and talk to the officer?
Yeah, fine. But the point is they're not required to. I don't know about you, but I have a real problem with this assumption that we as citizens are supposed to yield our rights arbitrarily just because it will make police officers happier. They are our servants, not the other way around.
