I finished a paper last week about the Guerena shooting, being a Marine myself I’ve been following the story since it happened. Remarkable how leaky the Sheriff’s story is, it would be prime for a 20/20 or something like that investigation.
Swat’s raid on Guerena was also disgustingly amateurish. Keep in mind though, even with poor training, they will still learn when things pick up. However, there are some buildings that just can’t be taken down without HE. Makes me wonder if they’d go that far…
What we need are more cops with real military combat experience and fewer cops just out of high school. Think about it – combat vets are, I believe, as a group, going to be less trigger happy and less jumpy because they know what actual gunfighting is, what to expect, how it starts, how it ends.
The issue I and many of my friends have is not wanting to work for the gov’t again. With the growing power of the federal gov’t i think most of us are content with playing the grayman and staying up on our skills.

News story here. He is a member of the Mississippi Preparedness Project, and I am told he may have been [...]
I went back and added this stuff toward the beginning of “Prosecutorial Discretion.” *** The phone rang in the small security office in the lobby of the Missouri Hazardous Materials Agency building located in the sprawling Militia Drive complex of government buildings just east of Jeffersn City. “State Hazmat Office, watch officer Phillips speaking, how [...

“Despite voting to hold Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. in contempt ofCongress, there’s little House Republicans can do in the short term to compel him to turn over documents — unless it wanted to revisit a long-dormant power and arrest him. The thought is shocking, and conjures up a Hollywood-ready standoff scene between House police and the FBI agents […]
I’ve taken down some of the older PD posts and am re-working the story as a short novel to be published, at a minimum, as an e-book. I’m still working on it just about every day off that I have, and I think that those who like the story will like the additions and changes [...]
