I shared an apartment off ship in Norfolk. Everyone knew all too well how Virgina was on alcohol especially beer of all things. If you were on your porch drinking a beer the cops would invite themselves onto your property to arrest you. Buying the beer was legal as was stronger drink. But you had to go inside your house and hide from LEO eyes to drink it. However if you walked past an officer smoking a joint they likely wouldn't notice it or care. That was over 30 years ago.
I find the overkill that has become typically SOP by LE, even dealing with non-violent crime as particularly threatening to a society that pays them to protect and serve, not run ram-shod.
The public is being treated as a threat when it isn’t. Overreaction such as breaking down doors in the middle of the night (sometimes at wrong addresses) by SWAT over non-violent offenses creates an unnecessary threat to the public and cops.
Those who cross over the line need to be held accountable.
