Excellent read, thanks for the post.
Police are using SWAT teams for all kinds of search warrants now, especially if the warrant is gun-related. The friendly cop strolling the block is not the same as these paramilitary forces.
I’m sorry, but anybody who comes through my front door wearing a uniform and helmet, body armor and combat boots and carrying a full rock-n-roll automatic, that’s a soldier. And if he draws a paycheck from ANY government agency, from local to federal, then that government soldier is a REDCOAT. We didn’t like them before and we’re going to like them a lot less today.
