This strikes me as a simple political power-grab. SWAT teams give the standard Police force military-like powers, the ever-increasing misuse of SWAT teams in raids where they are not needed puts innocent lives at risk. The fact that SWAT often makes mistakes these “hot entries” can go VERY bad.
I said over there something that makes me very sad:
Sadly I don’t think it’ll stop until the Police kick down the wrong door and the lawful home owner shoots several of the intruders before they are killed.
It will result in the death of MULTIPLE highly-trained Police officers, and at LEAST one more innocent life.
I stand behind that. Also just so you know, anybody can buy a black uniform and shout “POLICE” as they kick down your door, and there have been several cases where criminals have done just that.
I’m off to bed, sleep tight!
