 This issue is an increasing problem, and I wanted to share. Police departments across the country have increasingly been enacting paramilitary tactics in cases where they never used to. Be sure to go Jimbo's post, his interview, and also the hyperlink for the interview with Mayor Calvo - his personal story is horrific.
 "I am not saying that SWAT teams are bad mmmkay. I am saying I think using them to serve warrants on non-violent offenders is an awful idea"
Good on Jimbo for bringing this to light. He is close to the theory(and practice) of these tactics - this makes him an impeccable critic.
