http://www.columbiatribune.com/news/2010/feb/23/family-questions-swat-drug-search-that-led-to/ [Broken] Another site with the story: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/russ-belville/columbia-missouri-swat-ki_b_567172.html So the SWAT team just forces itself into the home, shoots at the dogs prior to actually being attacked by them. (well by one... the other was a corgi... that one got shoot to though!!) How can you tell that the dog isn't attacking? Just by the sounds... if the dog had actually attacked one of these officers you would definitely know just from listening. No, they had shot it just because it was a dog inside the home which they had forcefully entered. I mean it did go to attack later on you can hear it's pretty pissed off... but it was already shot once. That's when they killed it but I assure you, if you break into my house yelling and I come to welcome you or check out who you are and you shoot ME I'm gonna be freaking pissed off too. So anyways after that the SWAT team runs around yelling trying to intimidate the family even more (as though their military like presence and automatic rifles and shotguns weren't enough) and they yell at the mans CHILDREN! I mean like REALLY? These kids are just being woken up, flashbanged and hear yelling all over and these men are going to try and yell at the children in an effort to make them comply to their wishes thru intimidation? Absolutely no one resisted (well except the dog after it was shot once but they took care of that!) So why couldn't they just try the good old knock on the door method? Or the good old get him when he leaves his house for work the next morning method? Trying to catch the criminal off his guard!?!? THE MAN ONLY HAD A FEW GRAMS OF MARIJUANA AND A PIPE! They say they came too late but I mean like what the ****? For some marijuana you get this? He wasn't dealing as they found no money... soooo hmmm. This is just absurd! This crime in no way justifies the amount of trauma this family has gone through at all. People try to justify it by saying the police need to protect themselves... FROM WHAT? There were NO reports that this man was heavily armed or would resist. Just ONE informant suggesting he had large amounts of drugs. That's beside the point, I always thought that the police were there to protect and serve US not themselves. Instead of worrying about the family inside the house and the rights of the individuals present the police worried about themselves (even though their worry was unwarranted). What a backwards justice system America has! People absolutely must stand up to this type of aggression. I mean I'm all for the country fighting off other people and taking down the bad guys but you need substantial evidence and it doesn't apply the same way to your own citizens! This wasn't some al Quida cell deep in the American desert plotting to blow up the Whitehouse. This clip is some what violent (you can hear them shoot two dogs one which cries out) so if you don't think you can handle it then don't watch it :tongue:. You guys have any comments? I assume you do and I assume there will be people here who are for the actions of the SWAT team too. I guess if I lived in America and I hated my neighbour I'd just call in saying that he grows marijuana. BAM his annoying dog is taken care of and his family is traumatized for life... maybe they'll even move out. Brilliant.
