Something has to break here. People are being terrorized by tech-savvy kids. It’s no longer leaving a flaming bag of poo on a doorstep, toilet-papering trees or ding-dong-ditch. It’s not putting shaving cream on a car door handle or up a tailpipe. This is life and death. This is taxpayer money spent on pranks.
Someone is going to die over this. A homeowner is going to open fire on a SWAT team or a SWAT team is going to kill a high-ranking person in local government or the media. This is not going to end well.
It is the responsibility of the judges and the LEO to prevent what you astutely described. They better get their shite together or get prepared to meet a mass protest who will be better armed and enthused about saving our freedom from this all to often Swat mess.
It ended at least 20 years ago. We are in a true police state and most of us love it.
Where the heck have you been for the past two decades?
