surly though if you think about this makes sense.
Say the police have intelligence you are a drug dealer or other kind of criminal and you also happen to have a small armory of weapons it is only
right they use a SWAT Team.
You wouldn't expect them to send in Officer Bob and his partner with their standard issue side arms because if things go bad those two officers, lets
face it, will probably end up dead.
So for the safety of the officers a SWAT raid probably makes much more sense.
Do they over use SWAT teams, definitely, but when you have a nation with as many guns then its probably necessary.
Your responses very often scare me.
As soon as a call from a neighbour warrants an intrusive raid, you should leave the country, because it is on a fast way down.
You can not ever just believe an [anonymous] call as mostly we are talking people trying to 'get one over'. What should happen is this:
1. Go to the address of said caller, get their details, have someone interview them in order to find out if this is a real concern they are having or
just revenge BS.
2. If there is any substance to the claim. Go to the accused house, knock and have a chat with this person also. A lot of things can be cleared up
with a friendly talk. [If at this point you are worried about the safety of the officer, have two going]
3. If somehow, things seem dubious to an experienced law enforcer and after doing a little more digging, they MAY get a warrant, if no warrant can be
issued, leave people the F alone.
You see, this is what should happen in a civilised society. I am very suspicious of you and your 'goody two shoe' opinions, should I call someone on
