Anyone else hearing automatic machines going off last night around 8:00-9:00 on the north side of 380? I thought a war was going on and called the non emergency police, they said "Oh thats just the swat team practicing" Really at this time of night? I think they should get an indoor shooting range to practice at. Should I assume next time its the swat team and not some kids really killing each other?

Generally speaking,you want to practice in an environment that closely resembles the environment where you will put all your time practicing into action. Most times when SWAT will be called upon, they wont be needed in the sterile confines of an indoor range in the daylight. Hopefully I'll never be in a situation where SWAT will be needed, but if I am, I'll appreciate the fact that they were training in a "real world" scenario. In the future, rest assured that if you hear automatic gunfire that there is a 99.99% chance that it isn't kids killing each other. In the remote instance where it really is kids, we should be hoping that they are actually killing each other.

Hope you can get over it soon. Maybe ask your physician for some meds.

My kids thought it was some kind of firefight so we called - the dispatcher wasn't aware of any training - there were many reports, she urged us to stay in the house and go to the area that is farthest from the street. What am I Supposed to think?
In this day and age it makes sense to manage the expectations of the public, it sounded like some psycho losing it at the Samaritan Inn to me....

"...the dispatcher wasn't aware of any training..."

because the MPD SWAT team does not have any, they "make it up on their own", as public records show. Completely unsurprising that one hand doesn't know what the other hand is doing (the latter wasting time, money and endangering the public playing soldiers).

"...it sounded like some psycho(s) losing it ..."

Couldn't agree with you more.

Ignorant Hillbilly's with automatic military weapons, not what "police officers protecting and serving" are supposed to be.

We don't have "peace officers" anymore, we have fascist pigs, a term I hate to use; but it is true.

They've gone for drones before and got shot down. Ya know, morons flying drones around the air patterns of McKinney Airport not to mention Love, DFW and more that fly directly over our homes, schools, etc. in McKinney.

Drones, even those flown by actual trained military personnel with an actual reason to use them, crash all the time.

But they will have them soon, because they need them because,"umm, uhh, well, I think, well because there could be a Boogey Man out there. Not saying there is but ya know there could be, so we'd better prepare".

Just watch. What's that Geico commercial that's on TV, something about "when pigs fly"?

And you will foot the bills.

That's a fact. They've already tried .... just like Roach wanted his own personal SWAT team. Because after all "it is my (his) money!".

As usual, scum like him forget that they have no money, except that which they take from us, the taxpayers.

What a waste of our budget money, get rid of these guys. Sent them to Afghanistan, that way they can play army against other armies instead of U.S. citizens.

But I doubt they'd want to do that, because that would be dangerous for them.

Yes these guys are a for real disaster waiting to happen (again). Wonder why the DA's office has not gone after them?
