6. But?
Wasn't a SWAT team used to attempt arrest a woman who had failed to pay her student loan?

Who's more dangerous...someone who reneged on a student loan or a man accused of mudering 19 people?

There was an incident in the Kingstowne section of Alexandria Virginia a few years back. The SWAT team was called in to arrest a man who was alledged to have been gambling...he was an eye doctor with no criminal record.

During this operation he was killed by a SWAT officer...shot in his front yard and he was unarmed! And as usual the officer was guilty of no wrong doing.

Personally I think it's just another way for local LEO's to justify spending money on all the pretty paramilitary toys!
