RL - No Worries brother. It came off a bit funny, but I didn't take as such. I was just asking for clarification.
My point was only to make that they guys have fancy gear, and they get to do all sorts of cool stuff - that part is true, but they are people first. Nobody can predict what these "ordinary" guys will do when ordered to do something they don't agree with personally.
Spending time around a lot of them, I can tell you, they are all regular guys. They whistle at hot chicks, they hate to see people who are complete dirtbags make obscene amounts of money ( either legally or illegally ), they all feel that there could be better leadership from the local level to up on high, they pay their taxes, they bitch about paying their taxes, etc. etc. etc.
I personally don't want a SWAT unit driving their armored HumVee right across my lawn and into my neighbor's house as a first ditch effort
at conflict resolution. I don't want snipers to be green lit at the first sight of a badguy who happens to be in the house across the street from where my fiancee' is working if there are other alternatives.
Sometimes mistakes are made. Yeah, time was wasted. Perhaps too much time, but even if a good SWAT guy puts down the worst bad guy out there, there is an aftermath for that team member. And at the end of the day, that Team Member is still just a guy like you, me or the rest of the blokes on the forum.
