Sort of a reminder bump ... Although we snicker about LEOS taking out the family pet it is an actual outrage in many, many cases.
Not hitting at you - I think that nationwide we need to press for the protection of our pets, kids , etc. during SWAT or swat-like home-invasions by authorities.
We have many state legislatures in our control we could push on this issue. Now is a great time. 2012 we may take everything with the “right”people.
Warrant or no we could establish standards delineating exactly what cop equipment they can bring to bear in a particular situation.
No battering rams for a domestic broken window for instance. Like I say bump for more thoughts tomorrow.
Not a rant - just a thought.;-)
