Someone please explain how the serving of the warrant had to be done in the manner in which it was carried out.. I know, I know how "this is the way it's done" and "we do it this way all the time"! It is also the way 4 or 5 good cops could have been killed and how the town could have been burned down more than it was.

What's so important he couldn't have been served after returning from being out of the building? Same situation as Waco which could have been handled in such a way as to prevent loss of all those lives and burning it to the ground.

No one wants to take a common sense approach to doing such business. They'd rather do it the cowboy way with all guns blazing and lives lost. Do any of those in authority have any sense, common or otherwise? C'mon, give it a try. Please explain why safer methods (potentially life saving methods) can't be employed in such cases

Don't waste your time. I know that I am outta here. Next they will tell you, "you shore gotta perty mouth...squeal like a pig." Get out while you can!

Like I said, it's a simple question. Oughta be a simple answer. We just don't do it that way is NOT an intelligent answer. Could have very easily been 5 dead. If that's the only way to do it, just continue to do it that way. I thought "Blue Lives Matter"!

Must be a very complicated answer....something "normal" people wouldn't understand. Get a group of men together, someone yell charge and bust in to a store. Works well doesn't it?

"The major takeaway from Waco is to avoid making the situation worse by the unnecessary use of force" the study goes on to say ""It's likely that had Koresh been apprehended away from the compound, he could have been arrested (served in this case) and the entire seige (shootout & fire in this case) could have been avoided."

Excerpt from study - simply google"25 years after the event, what are the lessons of the Waco seige".

The truth of the matter is, with a bit of common sense downtown Talihina did not have to burn, there did not have to be a shootout, 1 person did not have to die, and 4 troopers did not have to get shot (and they were lucky they did not get killed).

Think about it folks and especially law enforcement that had to do it cowboy style! It is a simple question, perhaps too simple.

Fact remains - if he was so law abiding this would not have happened- I’m sure the reason it was done that way is Bc he was so dangerous ( as he proved) and if he were to be apprehended in some public place - what would have happened - how do you know he would not have had a concealed weapon and shot who knows how many people? The blame goes on him NOT—

When you have such a small town, you cannot absorb other ways of thinking. If going full cowboy style and assaulting a peacefull man at 6 a.m. is acceptable in Talahina, you can assure that small town will stay that small and more inbred. If the town doesn't grow in size, ever, we must question why are people leaving? Because its crooked there

wrong - the blame goes on Oklahoma Law Enforcement, which didn't learn a damn thing from what went on in Waco. Had the Troopers been killed (and thank God they were not), the Okies might have learned something.....might not.

You'd think Bob Ricks might have learned something at Waco and implemented common sense safety precautions in handling situations such as Talihina during his long tenure at the top of Oklahoma law enforcement.

Be careful troopers and other law enforcement officials. They think nothing of you guys and gals getting shot up or blown up or burned up. Let the one hollering charge go in first!!!!!

People love to hate more than they love the truth and more than the effort that it takes to critically analyze the facts.

I didn't see much safety coming from that unnecessary, half-baked, poorly executed, based on questionable information terrorist style infringement on our town.

Anyone see how they captured Whitey Bulger? A armed dangerous fugitive. No shots fired. No one hurt. No property damage. They did it with smarts.

Damn, you're dumb - it's the one's giving the orders I am bitching about. The Okie Law Enforcement Braintrust learned absolutely nothing from WACO and one of the top WACO culprits, Bob Ricks, was head of the Oklahoma Department of Public Safety for years. The Okie Law Enforcement Braintrust is precisely who put the troopers in harm's way. Get a clue, get a life - don't just follow aimlessly! Damn.

I'm not upset over him dying - I'm upset that 4 good guys were shot and could be dead because of stupidity: the kind of stupidity exhibited by you and others of your ilk! Some of you are too ignorant to be on a computer.
