SWAT and Stone

Of all of the things surrounding the Roger Stone case, the use of the SWAT team at his home is especially outrageous. SWAT should be for someone who poses an active threat to the lives of others – like an active shooter. There was zero justification for using a SWAT team. This is obscene police brutality.

It is too bad, though, that this did not provoke most conservatives to think more clearly about the wider issue of police militarization.
