Aiyana Mo'nay Stanley-Jones was asleep on the sofa when a police SWAT team hurled a flash-bang grenade into the apartment and smashed the front door down. The little girl was hit in the head by a bullet fired by one of the officers, Joseph Weekley, as a television camera crew filmed their exploits for a new show. Critics have accused the Detroit Special Response Team of being influenced by the fact they were on camera.'I'm worried they went Hollywood,' a high-ranking Detroit police official told www.motherjones.com.
'It is not protocol. And I've got to say in all my years in the department, I've never used a flash-bang in a case like this.'

You know in cases like this the police always lay the blame on the victim's family, saying they forced their hand.

Removed from swat? Perhaps they all should face murder charges for killing a 7 year old? Guilt by association???
Sorry if this is police bashing by offering a opinion. When is enough enough? How many innocents have to die before we do something?
You think the courts will offer justice to this kid?
