At CFIF, I discuss a superb, and chilling, column by Deroy Murdock on the frightening misuse of SWAT teams nationwide. Dogs killed, for no good reason. People killed by mistake. Tiny children frightened nearly to death — and, in one case, made to lie down for hours next to their dead dog, all after a raid on the wrong house. Is it any wonder that people fear our government? Is it any wonder that people want guns of their own? Please, please read this column. And if you are a local official, please reconsider how you constitute and use SWAT teams, and consider the possibility that you might not really need a SWAT team at all.
