overkill (no casualties)

Local SWAT team deployed because, umm...

Well, it seems like they did use more common sense than the Pima County Sheriffs SWAT Team, but not much. Like, did they sell their Bullhorns to buy Flash Bangs or something? Or how about a Night Stick banging on a wall well away from a Window or Door?

These incompetent Keystone Cops are one reason I moved from Willowick years ago. They have always been good at hassling motorists (especially minorities) and catching kids egging houses, but beyond that they are in over their head. Makes sense, he may shoot himself, so lets go over there quick and see if we can beat him to it. They have a history of forgetting they are tax payer funded.

At least they didn't kick the door in and shoot at him 71 times.

If I weren't very happily married, I'd want the women's name...so I could avoid her.

So if someone has an :issue: just call 911, claim they are suicidal and have those "eveel" black guns...
Thats one way to solve your own "issues" with someone else!!


Cripes....

It appears the unhappy girl-friend knows exactly how to get her revenge on the BF. He's got a CCW, so she "thinks" he has a gun and "maybe" one of those nasty assault weapons and he "might" be suicidal!

He think he might have been giddy with exhilaration at his freedom from the harpy.

And, as an aside, I don't feel obligated to answer either my cell or land-line at any time of the day or night. That's why they call them MINE!

Sure glad the law enforcement folks weren't disturbing anybody's peace in the pre-dawn hours.

They think he didn't seem them because it's dark outside, so they set a flashbang off in his front yard?!

How about turning on those nice, bright, flashing lights every vehicle you have is equipped with, and blowing the siren a few times? That's less likely to get a violent response from a reasonable person than an explosion that could be mistaken for a gunshot!

An explosion/gunshot in my front yard will have me checking it out from a darkened window with a gun in my hand. If all I see are people in dark clothing standing around my house, I am not answering my door unarmed (if at all)!

Twits!!

And some people wonder why so many have so little respect for the police.

There are a lot of vindictive women who use the police as a way to win an argument. It happened to me about 7 years ago:
