I happen to know that this is a load of crap. The youth in question had gotten into an argument with his mother over the phone, and she called the police t escort her into the home because there was a firearm in the house registered to the boys father The Rockyhill police department proceeded to then completely overreact and send in multiple towns and a state swat tank. Only to find out the boy was playing xbox at his friend's house. nice job rockyhill pd.

OK let's analyze the original phonecall from the mother:
She was afraid to go into the house after an argument with her son and SHE HERSELF was afraid and concerned about a firearm in the house.
Now, the MOTHER should know MUCH MORE about her own son's mental stability than the police who DON'T EVEN KNOW HIM, correct?.....CORRECT. So listen carefully now....if SHE honestly believes he might have conceivably used the gun (because she was afraid to enter) then the police HAVE TO take that information SERIOUSLY and are MANDATED to take STANDARD NECESSARY precautions and follow STANDARD PROTOCOL in case the mother's fears are true. They acted STRICTLY BY THE BOOK to eliminate ANY chance of a shooting incident. Remember, the MOTHER has known her son ALL HIS LIFE!....they DON'T.
Now, let's take another VERY POSSIBLE scenario:
The mother calls in the same info. The police do what YOU would want them to do....and that is to NOT take it seriously and NOT "over-react" (YOUR words NOT mine). When they walk in the door, the son aims the gun at the officer and pulls the trigger. A police officer is dead because they UNDER-REACTED.
If that had happened, you would probably be the FIRST person to SLAM the police for not taking the PROPER, MANDATED action.
Understand now? I thought so.....

You obviously didn't read my reply did you? Read it and think seriously about it before you make stupid comments about "over-reacting" (your words) with shiny hummers and assault vehicles.

IDIOT!

Police State? WOW....you liberals are really handing our country to anyone aren't you?

Here's an idea....if you don't like the police interfering with your criminal goings on, then stop breaking the law! A police state to you is simply the, enforcing the laws that are made to protect the general public.....even idiots like you.

You obviously have had run-ins with the police before, otherwise you'd respect what they do like most NORMAL, LAW ABIDING, citizens do, but since you hate them so much it is apparent that they have arrested you in the past (probably multiple times) and you're mad that you got CAUGHT!

Try making yourself a productive part of society instead of blaming the police for stopping CRIMINALS from breaking the law.

MORON!

LMAO!!! Republitards like you keep pissing on the Constitution in such quantities as to rend most of the Bill of Rights useless(except of course for the 2nd Amendment). Ben Franklin had you and your ilk in mind when he wrote,"They who would trade liberty for security soon have none and deserve neither." Keep bending over for the police. They love morons like you.

You can keep changing your name but you're the same person who keeps posting. Why don't you pick one name and stick to it? Are you trying to make it appear that others are siding with you? Hmmmm

I have very eloquently and accurately explained why the response was the CORRECT one per policies and procedures that are in place for the GENERAL PUBLIC'S SAFETY. You, on the other hand, simply want to attack the police (calling them a police state) and then keep changing your name to fake support from others.

If you take an UNBIASED, HONEST poll (not one conducted by MSNBC, CNN or any other liberal media), you will find that the VAST majority of citizens (not illegals) in this country STRONGLY support security, safety and police protection.

Again, I have no idea why you are so dead-set against the police but it certainly appears that you have had run-ins with them, otherwise you would want safety also.....

Blah blah blah blah blah blah .... yawn... I have never stated I was against the police. It's their over reaction that bothers me and many many many citizens. You on the other hand have no problem with your fellow citizens tased to death, beaten etc.
