    Cedardale, thank you for providing the link to the informational and very well written affidavit for the search warrant. It would appear that this "fine upstanding young man" and his cohorts were...shall we say...not exactly living at the foot of the cross. The information in the affidavit would certainly indicate an extreme possibility of drug related activity. As for the comment about whether SWAT's identification could be heard inside the house...maybe it could...maybe not. I would present to you that, since this "good Marine" had a fully loaded AR-15 handy, he was expecting some sort of trouble. I have one myself...it stays locked in my safe. As for serving his country....maybe so. But, some time ago, there was a news article, with video, of gangs who "volunteer" for the military service simply for the training....and then when discharged, they bring that training right back home to their turf. That may or may not be the case here....but it does happen. Cut away all the fluff about his "service to the country " and whatever you think the SWAT team did wrong, the fact remains that he presented a deadly threat to sworn officers....and that threat was met with deadly force.

    Yeah Cedar, that sure does show he was a thug.Doesn't say how long ago the arrests were made,how much he was carrying (and apparently not much, since it didn't amount to a felony arrest),and sure SWAT identified themselves while they were approaching the house,but was it loud enough for the occupants inside to hear? Because, I know if they were outside my house, I wouldn't hear them.
