Followed that link, and here is further reading for anybody interested.
At the very least, the ACLU finds, the growing use of battering rams to smash down doors is causing property damage to the homes that are raided. At worst, people are dying or being injured by police teams deploying the techniques of the battlefield. The survey, which covered only a small snapshot of what is going on around the country each year, found seven cases where civilians died in connection with the deployment of the Swat teams, two of which appeared to be suicides. A further 46 civilians were injured, often due to use of force by officers.
Since when is it acceptable to treat that middle class blue collar family of innocents like they're literally domestic terrorists? Surely that's an indicator of how bad things have gotten, if there people killing themselves in the process of these "raids" - which we should just refer to them as home invasions, which is what they really are. Especially if they're throwing military grade suppression elements into rooms with babies and blowing them open. That is a home invasion with malicious wounding (and in my internet level knowledge of things) probably felonious wounding (tacked onto child endangerment).. In short I would think that once the dust settles those home invaders (cops if you will) should get the worst punishments that the system they're so maliciously "enforcing" can dish out.
Then there was Tarika Wilson who was shot dead by Swat officers as she was holding her 14-month-old son in Lima, Ohio; the baby was injured but survived. And Eurie Stamp, a grandfather of 12, who was sitting watching baseball on TV in his pajamas in Farmington, Massachusetts, in January 2011 when a Swat team battered down his door, threw a flashbang device into the room and forced him to lie facedown on the floor. One of the officers’ guns discharged and killed Stamp, who was not the man they had come to apprehend, as he lay there.
So now they're getting away with murder? What the fuck is wrong with these people?
Also in 2011, Jose Guerena, a veteran of the Iraq war, was shot 22 times in his kitchen at home in Tucson, Arizona, by officers in a Swat team that was searching the neighbourhood for drugs. Nothing was found in the Guerena home.
This guy didn't even drugs and they were "searching" the neighborhood. I call bullshit on "searching" I think they were out gunning for a Hispanic to murder and what better in their convoluted minds than a vet? 22 times is a bit excessive, especially because he was innocent and didn't have any drugs or contraband.
Back to the original point though -
A few hours after the raid took place, police located the suspect they had been seeking at a different house in the neighbourhood. The officers knocked on the door, the suspect opened it, and agreed peacefully to come in for questioning.
How the fuck do you get the address wrong?
Sorry this is all a slightly gibbered rant, I'm a tad bit drunk.
