Another case of puppycide.
Judge in California reinstates a $75,000 punitive damages award to a victim of a wrong-door raid.
Law enforcement groups in Ohio rally against a proposed Castle Doctrine law. Presumably, such a law would not include the right to shoot a police officer who enters your home lawfully. So why would they oppose allowing people to defend their homes from criminals?
Here’s a police recruitment video for a department in Georgia. One former police chief I interviewed for my Overkill paper told me when he reluctantly agreed to assemble a SWAT team, he brought his entire department together and asked for volunteers, then immediately disqualified everyone who raised his hand. He explain that the guys dying to be on the SWAT team are the last the guys you want serving on the the SWAT. Contrast that line of thought with the video above, which uses the SWAT team as a recruiting tool for the entire department. Think about the type of people that’s going to draw into your applicant pool.
The Fairfield Minuteman newspaper criticizes the Easton, Connecticut police department for its typical silence following the drug raid shooting death of unarmed Gonzalo Guizan.
Now: Wrong door immigration raids, too. Serves ’em right for looking like people who might be illegal.
