    Overkill: SWAT teams sent to fight poker games, liquor violations. MJS Let's talk

    "The door-busting, guns-drawn tactics can have deadly consequences as reporter Radley Balko details. In a 2006 Virginia case a detective pretended to befriend an optometrist whose crime was betting on football games. The optometrist, Sal Culosi, was shot and killed during a SWAT team raid of his house. His last words, uttered to the cop he thought was his friend: "Dude, what are you doing?"

    Mark Johnson of the Journal Sentinel, Let's talk about this story. Anyone have any stories they'd care to share about the use of SWAT teams -- proper or otherwise?

    Following condemnations by Hillary Clinton, everyone in the world is now trying to define exactly what the Alt-Right is. Most of them are getting it wrong.

    Sending a SWAT team for betting. Sounds a tad overkill (sorry, pun was not intentional).

    I ask sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people except for a few politicians. - George Mason (father of the Bill of Rights and The Virginia Declaration of Rights)
