Never let an opportunity to deploy the S.W.A.T pass. SWAT causes more damage and heartache than good when they go too-often to the wrong house. You would think something so important and so potentially deadly would be managed better.

In this case all went okay...however, I don't see why the citizen/subject had anything to apologize for; no law against swearing and banging on your lawnmower blade...yet.
