Every SWAT member resigns from team in Florida over safety concerns and ‘police chief taking a knee’
Police officers across the country are getting tired of their leaders playing political games, while they are out on the street putting their lives at risk for increasingly hostile communities.
In Hallandale Beach, Florida, located between Fort Lauderdale and Miami, the entire SWAT team of the department resigned en masse Friday, the South Florida Sun Sentinel reported.

One of my sons is a senior in college, majoring in LAW ENFORCEMENT. Thankfully, he had already decided to not seek a job in a large city. I'm encouraging him to attend the FBI Training Academy.
I wish him luck and success.

tragically...yet none ever resign after each accidental oops wrong house killing...
where's the empathy then when it comes to dead counts..
they're angry 'accidental' break-ins and killings are off the policy.
they'd rather resign instead of doing better or outline a plan because they recognize the need to do better... true heroes...spare the excuses and the mea culpa.
they all have jobs waiting for them somewhere in the south or Midwest. because accountability and patriotism are mutually exclusive
SWAT teams are required by law to "knock and announce" their presence before entering a suspect's home. One of Bowe's neighbors, Arvis Samuel, 41, claimed the SWAT team burst through Bowe's back door without introducing themselves.
"HBPD SWAT member, Detective Distefano, has stated under oath that he was the officer responsible for announcing the presence of police prior to breaking down the door and that he did not announce the presence of the officers and did not hear anyone else announce or give any commands to Howard Bowe Jr. before he was shot," the family's complaint says.
The family's complaint says that Hallandale Officer Michael McKenzie, who shot Bowe, "knew or should have known, and every reasonable officer in his position would have concluded, that there was no reason to shoot Howard Bowe Jr. who was standing in his own home, in his underwear, unarmed and with both hands clearly visible."

This will get worse before it gets better.
Police have no support so they quit, Businesses have no protection so they leave those cities, Truck drivers are now refusing to deliver to cities with no police force to ensure their safety.
People are now buying out guns and ammo from FFL Dealers for home and self protection, Is this the end of the gun control movement?
Not just in Florida, but I digress.
Result: These cities have no jobs, nor goods and services, ie.. Food. The people leave as some already are from New York, taking the Tax base with them, then these cities collapse.
As they are "mostly" Democrat controlled cities, the people disperse out to Conservative areas and "Hopefully" learn that certain liberal policies simply do not work.
