1. This freak . . .

. . . is a masterpiece.

I had family that lived in a town of 700. Trying to wrap my head around a SWAT team in that sleepy little town, with its one grocery store, one gas station, one cafe, and a post office the size of my front porch.

Wow.

Pass the lead chips.

2. It would be a regional, volunteer SWAT team?

Had one of them up home - major fiasco ensued. Poor organization, cascade of bad decisions, ended up getting a State cop shot and a parole violator's (drunk, troublemaker, armed) father killed.
Bad news, don't do it..........

16. I started transcribing the newspaper clipping - enuff details for some Googleing..

Report Finds Confusion at Shooting
Muddled Leadership Cited in 2008 Charlestown Death
Mark Davis Valley News Staff Writer

Charlestown, NH Ė The two officials who oversaw a 2008 arrest operation that ended with police killing a Charlestown man communicated poorly and were confused about who was ultimately in charge, according to a report released yesterday.
In August 2008, the New Hampshire Attorney Generalís Office declared that police were justified in killing Anthony Jarvis, who shot at them after they arrested his son and wounded one state trooper. But at the same time, the Attorney Generalís Office documented several law enforcement errors at the scene and called for further review of police actions.
While the New Hampshire Police Standards and Training Council is scheduled to release that review later this month, the Attorney Generalís Office recently released more details from its 2008 investigation, providing a fuller picture of the decisions that preceded the shooting.
The report revealed for the first time that Timothy Julian, head of the special operations unit called to the scene, initially said that he did not have enough trained men to perform the arrest, but relented when Sullivan County Attorney Marc Hathaway told him that his team would play a limited role and would not have to enter the home.
But events quickly escalated, and police officers did have to enter the home. A drunk and armed Jarvis shot and wounded State Police Trooper Phillip Gaiser, who returned fire, fatally hitting Jarvis with several shots.
Police gathered at the Claremont Police Department on the evening of July 26, 2008 to plan the arrest of Jesse Jarvis, a parolee who was wanted for allegedly stealing a Nazi flag, resisting arrest, and violating his parole.

13. I've got a relative in a town like that

He's the police chief, fire captain, school principal, and a teacher at the school. Also owns the only bar in town, and a farmer. If I suggested that he start a SWAT team he'd probably die from laughter. In a town with only a few hundred people, there's never even been a crime that everyone didn't already know who it was, and never anything worse than high school kids stealing tractors.

4. So, let me get this straight

Dude, turns on his webcam, opens up his recording software, presses the big red button, records/edits his rant, uploads it to Youtube...and then has the nerve to claim he wasn't thinking straight?

8. 'Yeager is not a certified instructor. When asked about that,

he said he allowed his license to expire.

The state also said Tactical Response is not a department-certified school.'

so, this guy is basically Joe the Plumber, w/ a gun in place of a plunger...

. . . But I'm not angry any more. I'm in full control of my emotions."
