There were 6 other suspects linked to the stolen card, some known to own guns and oftenly get high on methamphetamine, which is quite an unpredictable drug where the safety of the public is concerned - maybe an organised, co-ordinated SWAT raid wasn't so bad at all.
No way am i pro-militarization of the police forces over in the states, but i see little wrong doing here? Heck at least they didn't shoot the dog.
SWAT raids for anything but hostage situations are bogus and are a real threat to public safety. We are simply dealing with highly questionable (low caliber) police management and even lower caliber of policemen.
I also wonder about why it took SO MANY armed cops (looking ready like SWAT) over a stolen credit card/merchandise??? You would have thought they were going into some kind of hostage situation by the looks of it.
