79. Hey, 1 dimensional mindset man....
The SWAT team was informed that the kid holing up in the bathroom had some sort of weapon.

They chose to enter the bathroom with out employing two options readily available to them before hand.

They chose NOT to toss in a concussion grenade to disable the child before storming the bathroom.

They chose NOT to toss in tear gas and seal the room.

They instead, chose to storm the bathroom, knowing full well that their only option at that point was to eliminate the target if he was still able to aim his weapon (which wouldn't have been possible for him had SWAT used 1 or both of the above options.

So, yes, it is our duty as citizens to question authority in this incident, because they question us every day.
