Geez Louise. Blottenberger, the air pistol bandit, hardly seems worthy of a FBI SWAT team. Notice also how the use of a snitch results in a bungled operation. Over the years, there have been quite a few stories of bungled raids, (i.e. wrong homes raided, innocent people terrorized), all on the word of an "informant".

The FBI SWAT team is an accident waiting to happen. Do they have a logo? A motto? Something with Skull and crossbones would be fitting. Perhaps a motto of "They're all "clean shoots" sooner or later."

This is a PR spin article, imho. What shows it is that gun detail in the article -- the author goes to great pains to associate it in the reader's mind with a "semi-automatic" handgun, describes the colors, yet never mentions that it is an air gun. At other places in the article there are other "convenient" or spin suggestions -- all to mitigate the FBI's actions.
