SWAT team raids: Overkill fit only for a police state

"Back in the heyday of Stalin’s USSR, the very hallmark of its totalitarianism was the dreaded 'midnight knock on the door,' in which the police simply hauled people away, sometimes never to be seen again and often for reasons unrevealed to relatives and acquaintances of the person abducted. To this terrifying scenario, the American state has added the excitement of flash grenades, broken windows, battered doors, and often unnecessary gunfire. This rampant, gratuitous police violence is, to put it mildly, totally out of order in a place that many Americans continue to insist -- however bizarrely -- is a free society." http://ping.fm/ppBaI
