I recently filed an open records request with the city of Dallas. I asked for “information on how often, if ever, the Dallas SWAT team or Dallas Police, has entered the wrong house while serving a warrant.” I asked for all incidents since 2002.
Homeland security? The transition from peace officers to law enforcement is complete when we give our police millitary gear and adopt war on terror rhetoric. I wonder if Dallas SWAT believes they are “protecting the homeland” when they go on poker raids?
