"When you need help, you call the police. But when the police needs help, they call S.W.A.T."
|"Hold back guys, he's just killing fags."|
In my youth there was a instructive TV program titled S.W.A.T. that perfectly captured G. Ford's America. In those days no one knew what a S.W.A.T. team was - the whole concept was brand new - but under the leadership of Lt. Dan "Hondo" Harrelson (Steve Forrest) America met a team of dedicated professionals who shot first and asked questions later. I doubt that the psych profile of most S.W.A.T. leaders has changed much over the past 40 years which means someone "higher up" had their foot slammed on the breaks in Orlando. Who? Hand wringing over gun control, which is exactly the same thing the politicians and press did after San Bernardino, is useless until we get answers on how the cops can let a homocidal maniac leisurely kill defenseless civilians for hours without stopping him? It appears that the US Attorney General is determined to keep the US
citizens subjects in blissful ignorance on that question.
U.S. officials will release partial transcripts of three phone conversations that the gunman who killed 49 people in a Florida gay club had with law enforcement during the massacre, Attorney General Loretta Lynch said on Sunday.
When it comes to fighting terror and protecting the American people I'll take Lt. "Hondo" over Gen. Lynch every time. The Orlando terror attack is the reason S.W.A.T. teams exist - it's why they're paid the big bucks and train relentlessly to protect citizens and kill bad guys. They're the bad ass cops the police call when the police can't handle the situation. Why does the US Attorney General exist?
