Exactly, how is kicking in a door at 3am "safer" than apprehending the guy while he is out driving or mowing his lawn or countless other scenarios that make FAR more sense.

Its all despicable man. IT is. But I refuse to blame the grunt doing his job. In the brief he doesn't have the ability to raise his hand and say "Hey, maybe this is a bad idea and a violation of rights... and potentially endangering civilians and us"... It don't work that way.
We agree on a lot but the culpability of a guy doing his job at the ground level when society accepts this.. we do not agree.
