Good Read: Overkill: The Rise of Paramilitary Police Raids in America from the Cato Institute
Over the last 25 years, America has seen a disturbing militarization of its civilian law enforcement, along with a dramatic and unsettling rise in the use of paramilitary police units (most commonly called Special Weapons and Tactics, or SWAT) for routine police work. The most common use of SWAT teams today is to serve narcotics warrants, usually with forced, unannounced entry into the home.

These increasingly frequent raids, 40,000 per year by one estimate, are needlessly subjecting nonviolent drug offenders, bystanders, and wrongly targeted civilians to the terror of having their homes invaded while they’re sleeping, usually by teams of heavily armed paramilitary units dressed not as police officers but as soldiers. These raids bring unnecessary violence and provocation to nonviolent drug offenders, many of whom were guilty of only misdemeanors. The raids terrorize innocents when police mistakenly target the wrong residence. And they have resulted in dozens of needless deaths and injuries, not only of drug offenders, but also of police officers, children, bystanders, and innocent suspects.

Thomas! There will NEVER be a next time for John!!! The police were told that the suspect had a knife. There were 3 of them and one suspect. You don’t think that the 3 police officers were capable of taking down one enraged suspect with a knife. Was it necessary for any of them to shoot?? John and the other victim were running to safety. With all the fear and chaos happening chances are both victims didn’t hear or believe the police were shouting at them. All 3 police officers shot at the victims and in doing so killed an innocent man who had gone to help his neighbors. Yes, I feel badly for those 3 police officers because they made a bad decision and will have to live with John’s death for the rest of their lives. Bottom line an innocent man was killed and we have lost a wonderful human being with a bright future ahead of him. His friends and family will never share another holiday together, see him get married, grandchildren or the big smile, warm hug and infectious laugh he had. Yes, John was a friend of our family and we will miss him terribly!

May-be the next time you HEAR “STOP THIS IS THE POLICE OR SHERIFF OFFICE GET DOWN AND SHOW ME YOUR HANDS” You do it, Because as a Law Enforcement showing up at a active scene seening two men dressed alike running out the door you have the call to in most times a offerder is the one chasing a person out the door so the Deputy was using his or her best judgement. As a Deputy myself you have seconds to make a life or death decision and the press has days to always tear it apart and make the Deputy or Officer look like he or she is a COLD BLOODED KILLER. I wish everyone that thinks they do the job any better become a Law Enforcement Officer it not like TV. I am sorry this young man has died. I wish things didn’t happen the way it did. But I feel so sorry for the Deputy or Officer that had to make the one thing every Deputy or Officer wish they never have to use their Firearm on a Human Being and 95% of Law Enforcement never have to pull their firearm in the line of duty. Please wish everyone wouldstop and look at this Incident and try to look at it in the Deputy or Officers eyes and shoes. Before everyone thinks that they can or do it better or make the Deputy or Officer is guilty and want to hang them. He or She is going to have to go threw so much and thats before they go in front of Grand Jury, and start the Judicial process.i hope everyone feels sorry for the parties involved; the police, the victim and the young man that was in the wrong place at the wrong time.

The police racked up a higher body count than criminal and you’re defending them because… not killing innocent people is apparently too goddamn hard.

What a lowlife scumbag. Your really justifying this guy murdering an unarmed man just because your both law enforcement? And that’s the key words, law enforcement, because as far as I can tell he wasn’t enforcing the law he was taking it into his own hands. And you talk like you feel bad about him going through the judicial process? Well what about johns right to due process? And even if he was the attacker, he didn’t have a weapon at the time he was shot and nobody was in immediate danger so he would have had the right to due process as well. I am usually a big supporter of police and appreciate how hard their job is. But murder is murder and he shouldn’t get special treatment just because he wears a badge. And that’s the bottom line. Justice is blind and no man is above the law.

If I herd screaming from my neighbors apartment, I am sad to say, I don’t think I would go investigate.
I would call for help and try to watch for activity of any kind to relay to 911.
This story just kills me.
