    If they have the gear, they will misuse that gear.  It's that simple.  Same goes for SWAT.  The way it is now, SWAT is serving almost every single arrest warrant, all no knock, beat the door down types.

    I disagree, the cops do not need to be in an arms race with the top 0.1% of all criminals.  Those events are so rare, it's not worth the daily shootings we get in return.
