Oh good grief. They didn't just BURST IN, and fire away. He had ample warning, his wife KNEW they were there, and unless she can't understand the english language OR read english, which seems to be an increasing problem in the US...she KNEW they were police. IN ADDITION, they beat on the door, had giant shields that read POLICE, had SIRENS, YELLED POLICE, and well ANYONE could have known that a giant group of men dressed in black with a SWAT van labelled SWAT, and wearing SWAT uniforms, and sirens, and swat gear, were in fact SWAT!
The soliders death is terrible of course, but he chose to greet this group of men while holding a high powered gun.
If you HAVE to blame someone, blame the people that are coming into Arizona from Mexico, drug cartels etc that are literally killed DOZENS of people
every week, often more. Mass graves of 30 people found almost every other week, heads cut off, tunnels dug under the border, ENTIRE mexican towns
fleeing their own homes from the drug lord of Mexico..and it's ALL spilling over the border. If you were SWAT out on a drug call, and after due
dilligence, were met at the door by a man with a machine gun, what would YOU do?
Not positive of his heritage, but thank god he wasn't black or we'd be hearing how this was racist too.
Or maybe people who do not live along the US borders understand the USA is actually being FORCED to fight a war with criminals, well armed criminals,
para military trained criminals who want drug $$$$ and we have to fight this war with civility, while our enemies kill officers, agents, civilians,
you name it. Ranchers find decapitated Mexicans, raped women killed and tied to trees, etc, but as always people choose to look past the FACTS and
make up their own alternate Universe, in order to pass judgement on the US or the Government, or Law enforcement, etc etc.
