And so many of us saw this type of action happening years ago.
Every incident such as this is used to set precedent and to numb the masses into eventually accepting it as the norm.
killing innocents, military in the street, martial law, rfid on kids in schools, forced vaccinations, gun confiscations, spying, recording, indefinite detentions with no charge/trial, drones overhead, military invasions on any country for gain, NSA, TSA, DHS, FBI, CIA, FEMA, detention centers, prison for profit, fast and furious, ...every citizen can be classified as a terrorist, poisoning of food stocks, agenda 21, water treated as owned by government and corporations...rain water as well...
Well, they just walk into your house because they know that they will receive a paid vacation.
Let's face it, would police 20 yrs ago have done this? No, because they knew that it would never be accepted. Why now? Because they see so many other cops breaking the law, murdering, ignoring the constitution and getting away with it.
whew....need I go on? Is anyone getting the message yet? Those that said only a few years ago that we were all paranoid...still ok with "I ain't doing anything so I'm ok"?
America is only missing the final wall around the entire nation to complete the picture. Probably dubbed something like The Patriot Wall or some such crap.

I've had several run ins with the local pd here, and one run in with the University police. I've told every one of them that if they come to my door without a warrant, kicking in my door will be the absolute last thing they do. No warrant equals an armed home invasion and I will treat them as I would any other home invader. At that point, the only thing that star on their chest does is give me a pretty target to shoot at. (Red dot scope on my AR and it is spot on at 100 yards) As I have also mentioned to them, the 30-06 will go right through their 'bullet-proof' vest and maybe even the next guy coming through the door.
As we used to say in my unit "Want some? Come get some. Don't want none, don't start none."
Don't get me wrong I'm not a cop hater, I just treat others as they treat me.
Until then, stay low, stay off the radar, stay safe.
Well said sir!!!

Where are the checks and balances that ought to be in place to make sure this kind of thing doesn't happen?

...and people still think we don't live in a police state.
Where's the freedom?

I'm sitting here stunned that this actually happened and these officers are not behind bars.
Every citizen in their jurisdiction should be at the courthouse protesting and getting actions taken against those officers involved. If not their next and crying over it then will be their own doing.
Actually this is a state matter when a police force goes astray. Sometimes you have to get out of the protected circles of corruption.
Linda and Michael Mitchell and their son, Anthony Mitchell, refused SWAT officers’ requests to use their homes during an hours-long standoff with the neighbor on July 10, 2011.

Very good questions!
I wonder if there will come a day, where a crime is being committed, when we will be as fearful, of those paid to protect and serve, as we are of those perpetuating the crimes themselves!~?
How did we ever let this happen and how can we now change our lives to bring an end to the tyranny perpetuated by those whom are paid to serve us?

The militarization of our police force scares me. Smells of 1930 Germany and the rise of the SS
