Another success of the War on Drugs. When will these idiots learn.

No knock raids are pants on head retarded.

Depends on how you look at the problem. If you look at it from the perspective of someone who thinks that individuals have rights which must be protected, then it's retarded. If you look it from the perspective of someone who thinks that individuals are tax cattle who need to be pushed around a bit every now and again, it makes perfect sense and the only problem is that people can fight back.

And this man dared to do so, even in the heat of the moment, and they're going to fucking crucify him. The terrorist officer who died got a big medal presented to his family from the governor himself. Like he died fighting a heroic cause. Our elected officials are psychopaths.

If it makes you feel any better, Indiana recently recently passed a law (roughly) stating that if someone just busts into your house, you can shoot their fucking ass. Being cops notwithstanding.

As a Texan, No knock raids in Texas are doubly retarded. Liberals in Texas have more firearms than conservatives in New York.

Complaining about a cop being shot on a knock raid here are like complaining you look like Pin-head after motor-boating a porcupine.

The cops were climbing into his house through the fucking window. They deserve to get shot for that. Someone should come to their senses and give this man a medal and let him out of jail.

Black or not, a public defender with half a brain cell can give a resonable defense: They are effectively intruders entering in a suspicious manner and unannounced.

The detail of the raid not turning up any evidence only helps the defense.

It seems that government is gearing itself towards the assumption that the average citizen does not own a gun. It is a preemtive precedent that powers that be are pushing because they want the average citizen not to have a gun, in hopes that these policies will work when gun seizures are completed, and these incidents are isolated. They hope these incidents will dissapear once the plan is complete. It won't though. As a matter of fact it will get worse. No gun zones simply do not work. Condolences to the family, I hope he is saved from his personal hell. He did the right thing.

The U.S. government doesn't seem to care if you have a gun or not, the assumption is that yes you can have a legal firearm license but you're just as likely to have one illegally anyway (they assume you are a criminal to begin with). No knock warrants are a shock and awe tactic designed to be so fast and quick that you wouldn't have a chance to arm yourself, even if you do arm yourself and kill a police officer do you really think the U.S. government gives a fuck about that?

War on drugs is all about creating a legalized slave trade in prison factories, so what if the police die in these encounters. Its not like a privately run prison gives a shit, they get their livestock anyway.

If you participate in a no knock raid against someone growing marijuana in their closet you deserve to get shot.

They're pretenses to use their shiny new toys and make believe that they're spies or soldiers, as well as to justify spending millions of tax dollars on all their SWAT gear. Im glad that pig is dead, he was breaking and entering and got what he deserved.

Every No-knock raid should expect to be shot at. From their side they are entering a location used for criminal activity with the intent of capturing said person against their will. If they are right or wrong about the location that is what they say they are doing, beign shot at is the expected outcome of that situation.

All of this over goddamn weed laws too. Fuck you Texas for being low information redneck sons of bitches who'd put a cop in danger over a good damn weed. Fuck you for being pussies about it after the fact. You cunts are just little redneck stooges, you let the Mexican horde cross Texas and infect our nation, but you're all about being big pussies that play soldier over weed. Wow, fuck you.

My disillusionment about the 'great State of Texas' couldn't be more complete. Oh well, what's new? Let's add that to the complete disillusionment that this country is a 'democracy' when exposed to the machinations of this election cycle.

The thing is they aren't as competent. One has to wonder if they had any clue of many people were in the house and where exactly. For instance, it the person is alone, why the fuck just not knock and THAT'S IT? announce yourself as a random civilian or whatever, and then when the person comes out you just subdue him and search the house? Instead they fucking climb the windows and get shot...

It questions if the intruders had identified as police officers, we'll shit, anyone can claim to be police.
