Government should limit use of SWAT teams
I have respect for law enforcement and the brave people who serve. They are being forced to do things they should not have to do.
This summer, a Wisconsin SWAT team raided an animal shelter and killed a fawn.
This was no accident. It’s what they were sent to do.
The DNR has a SWAT team, dispatched to seize and kill a fawn. You can’t make this stuff up!
Last week in Times Square, NYC cops confronted a disturbed man who was acting strangely and opened fire on him.
They missed him, but they did hit two female bystanders.
Last October, in Billings, Mont., a SWAT team in search of a meth lab raided the home of a Jackie Fasching.
They didn’t find any meth, but they deployed a grenade into a 12-year-old gir’s bedroom, causing her to suffer burns on her back, abdomen and arms while she slept in bed.
Last year, SWAT teams raided Gibson Guitars and shut down the factory.
The alleged crime was improper paperwork on imported wood.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission and the Department of Education now have SWAT teams. This is insane.
A SWAT team could get the wrong information, break down your door and shoot your dog any night. If you resist, they shoot you.
Join me in asking our government to limit the use of force by setting guidelines on who can have and who can use SWAT teams.
Citizens should not have to live in fear of government.
