    Further thoughts: I would prefer to be called a citizen, not a civilian. I wave at the local cops WITH a vet cap on and rarely get a wave back. What gives? -- Doc

    Reminds me of the raid at the beginning of the movie Brazil.

    "...the Department of Education's SWAT team bungled a raid on a woman who was initially reported to be under investigation for not paying her student loans..."

    Very interesting article especially today when more and more people do not differentiate between local state and federal agencies. I have to say that I have found myself thinking like some older and retired LEO's mentioned in the article. I do remember once turning down a grant because I just could not help but think strings somewhere or somehow were attached. This should start an interesting discussion.
