Weird And Pissed Off shares with us a story he had to get from the BBC.
(So much for OUR media! – sorry Biff)
On Wednesday, BBC News reported the indefensible discovery that the D.C. Capitol Police’s SWAT team was ready to neutralize the Navy Yard mass shooting.
But, the highly trained and heavily armed, elite tactical group was, instead, ordered to stand down and leave the scene. The Capitol Police promised a full investigation.
Today, BBC News reported more disturbing information. No one has talked to the SWAT team members. Not even for the protocol debriefing. But, not only have members of the SWAT team not been contacted,the department “has installed a new leader”. Without explanation.
Now, I’m not paranoid (or am I?) but this kind of thing smacks of pushing a political agenda through allowing violence to continue.
In an unarmed, target-rich environment for the bad guy!
And, it makes me sick. And more paranoid.
