I am entertained by every police officer who dresses as though he is going into combat. A side arm, a back up pistol, pepper spray, a taser, a rifle, a shotgun, a stun gun, ball cap, field boots, bloused trousers, etc. They look like the rich kid in the neighborhood turning out to play war. They carry more armament than I ever did in the Corps.

The images of the SWAT team in Orlando are comical. They are weighed down with more gear for a couple of hours of work than I took to the field for a month.

Finally, their tactics are comical as a whole. I am certain there is a hot shot SWAT team somewhere but on average, the amount of manpower, the amount of ammo expended and their relative ineffectiveness is comical.
