Great job SWAT team!!! Anytime a drug dealer is taken off the streets for good is a win for the good guys. We all know that if the suspect is not white then we can expect the rent a mobs to come protest.

It's funny how you come to say great job, but then make a racist remark. You are ignorant. First, the real true FACTS need to come out, it is funny how four reports I just read, and non of them are not the same story.

"...it is funny how four reports I just read, and non of them are not the same story."

HUH? You got me with that statement.

I don't believe Josh was so much racist as noticing that too often the criminal's race is more important than the crime and his victims (and the criminals race is usually not given).

It is a shame that police think that "dynamic entry" is a good thing. It is also a shame that police think they are justified in this insane war on drugs that cost the american taxpayer 75 billion dollars a year and fills our prisons proving that this is in fact NOT a free country at all. It is a police state with a prison industrial complex to feed. It is a shame that it was the suspect that got killed.
