Overkill??

returned home after work today to a helicopter circling above and the SWAT team surrounding a house 2 doors over.
Seems this guy had a parole violation warrant served.
They seemed to be taking it pretty seriously
Nice to be cautious and take no chances and these guys were obviously "loaded for Bear"!!
Wonder why the US has got such a reputation
cheers Dal

Looking at the clothing it's apparent that they've cornered the mutant toddler from Hell.

He's 20 months old, but weighs 200 pounds - they're right to take no chances.

Thats a bit harsh for a unpaid speeding fine.
