Another example of sterling FBI marksmanship at body-odor distance


Once again, the FBI fails to live up to their Hollywood image. 

A 15-agent FBI Swat Team stages an early-morning no-knock search-warrant raid on a Maryland home.  Once inside, one agent spots an 18-year-old female standing outside her bedroom door and shouts, “She has a gun!”  She survives the ensuing gunfire, all of which was from the FBI Agent(s); neither she nor any of the other occupants of the house were armed. 

Thank goodness their shooting skills suck as much as their reflex-judgment.  I believe at least one Swat Team member deserves dismissal with prejudice and that federal lawmakers should investigate this incident.  Yes, I believe that the onus is on law enforcement officers not to screw up, and I am interested in voting for major-party politicians who share that belief.
