Marcus Aurelius: "It was totally unforeseen, totally unplanned and extremely regrettable," St. John said. "We certainly did not want a juvenile, or anyone else for that matter, to get injured."Who could possibly know that throwing a grenade at people would cause injuries? This is regrettable, but could have been avoided if these people had simply moved to another country where the police don't act like filthy animals.
Kit Fister: Cops in the 1950s:[www.policemotorunits.com image 440x604]Cops today:[4.bp.blogspot.com image 566x425]Since when did we turn loose the National Guard on the US?
phrawgh: You can't make an omelet without breaking a few eggs. While this incident is regrettable, something has to be done to bring these meth heads and dopers under control so they stop preying on our children. It may be cliche but 'if you are doing nothing wrong, you have nothing to worry about' applies. Apparently the police found evidence of other illegal activity anyway. Police have a hard job to do and we should support them rather than question their every move.
Hale-Bopp: Yeah, that poor girl is likely going to have PTSD for the rest of her life.
Smallberries: WHO the HELL throws a flash bang into a METH LAB?
serial_crusher: protip: don't live nextdoor to a meth lab.
UNAUTHORIZED FINGER: SirDigbyChickenCaesar: We cool? Fist bump?*Bump*
SirDigbyChickenCaesar: We cool? Fist bump?
SirDigbyChickenCaesar: UNAUTHORIZED FINGER: I don't disagree with your comment about meth users and dealers, but you contradicted yourself as you claimed that you doubted the accuracy of the report that they were looking for a meth lab. Either they were, or they weren't. I'm sure the details were in the warrant. And I agree with everything that relcec said, except for calling you an asshole. He gets passionate sometimes. But these are passionate timesAgain, you are assuming they were looking for a meth lab. That is what she said. Based on the description of events, they were looking for a dealer...there is nothing in that report that says they didn't find them.
vodka: "blew the nails out of the drywall," Fasching said.Who the fark uses nails for drywall? Screws are the norm.
Marine1: Meth makes you do some farked up shiat that you probably wouldn't do if you weren't speeding your ass off.Example:
Marine1: No company wants to be in charge of making a consumer product that turns people batshiat insane and removes the clarity of mind to the point that you can murder someone after one dose.
MilkIt: phrawgh: Bathia_Mapes: phrawgh: You can't make an omelet without breaking a few eggs.

It may be cliche but 'if you are doing nothing wrong, you have nothing to worry about' applies. Apparently the police found evidence of other illegal activity anyway. Police have a hard job to do and we should support them rather than question their every move.You do realize that if there had been a meth lab present in the home the flash grenade could have caused it to explode, right? The explosion would have very likely caused significant injury to both the family members in the home AND the police officers.We have to win the war on drugs as the future of America and our children depend on it. As in any war there will always be innocent casualties. I do not care if there was a roach in the ash tray, the entire household should be incarcerated and receive outreach counseling from local religious organizations so these people have a chance at turning their lives around. For all we know the girl had one of those portable meth labs near her causing the burns. The police are in the middle of the investigation so they can't come out with all the facts and possibly mess up the case. Once all this blows over and the media attention dies down, I'm sure the police will be able to do what they need to do without the prying eyes and ridicule of the public and dopeheads.The stupid...it burns sooooo much like a flash-bang in a little girl's bed.
Marine1: There's still the problem of people using it. In that case, it'd be without the possibility of punishment.Again. Weed's fine. Meth is not.
UNAUTHORIZED FINGER: Why was jigger's post and image removed? It was a photo FROM THE ARTICLE.
Marine1: Indubitably: Drug war needs to be over, now.Marijuana? Sure.Meth? No.Meth makes you do some farked up shiat that you probably wouldn't do if you weren't speeding your ass off.
Marine1: Indubitably: Drug war needs to be over, now.Marijuana? Sure.Meth? No.Meth makes you do some farked up shiat that you probably wouldn't do if you weren't speeding your ass off.Example: go to a house with the intention of having sex with a young engaged mother, suffocate her half-sister (who is also a young mother) when she asks you what you're doing at the house at 4 in the morning, beat young mother number one to death, try to have sex with her body, and dump their bodies out in a field in rural Western Missouri.Like this asshole did.
Keizer_Ghidorah: So, the proper response to a suspected meth lab is to send in SWAT and toss grenades into the house as the first course of action?And they wonder why we think police and SWAT are assholes.
M11618: How does a swat officer not know there is a delay on a flash bang? One of the1st things i learned in the military was how to properly toss a grenade. This is piss poor training, have they never heard of a cordon and knock? Bored small town cops is what this is.
