Mertilla Jones gave a very different account. She said that she had been dozing in and out of sleep on the couch when she was startled by the shattering of glass and the deafening incendiary device hurled through the window. Ms. Jones claims she reached to protect her granddaughter and made no contact with any officer, according to the Detroit Free Press.
if you reach, you're dead. Hair trigger response to any perceived threats is what they train for.
In that case, the training seriously has to change. You don't have to shoot someone dead just because a movement was made. That reeks of amateur, not a professional.
Do they not teach SWAT teams or anyone for that matter to identify a threat before killing someone?
Identify, not invent one.

If he threatened with a gun you can't be sure if anyone else is in the house or if he called the police so he could try and take a few out for fun.
Suicide by SWAT is not as uncommon as you think.
