UPDATE: Long Past Time To End SWAT Night-time Raids

And no-knocks.

See if you believe this story out of Tucson. And note that after the ambulance shows up, the police keep them from working on the veteran (that they shot 60 times) for an hour.

This is insane. There is no justification for this.

Be sure to let the video keep playing, there’s more similar stories.

UPDATE: Here’s more of a followup. I believe I agree with this assessment:

Only, Guereña never fired his weapon. Awoken by his wife with screams that men with guns were invading his home and threatening his family, Jose Guereña armed himself with a AR-15 rifle and crouched in the hallway. The SWAT team unloaded upon Guereña on sight. He apparently recognized the home invaders as police. He took 60 rounds, but never — as the Pima County Sheriff’s Department was forced to admit — took off his weapon’s safety as he was being killed
