Lighting the building a SUSPECT has barricaded himself into on fire is not an appropriate law enforcement response.
Surround and contain and starve him out, but you don't light the place on fire.
It was CONVENIENT to let him burn. Officer safety, AGAIN. Can't send a SWAT team in, because he's dangerous.
Can't just wait him out because WE HAVE TO SOMETHING, AND BURNING HIM ALIVE IS SOMETHING, WE MUST DO THAT!
I am disgusted by the pro rights people who are cheering the Waco-like conclusion to this story.
If we discard our rights because it's expeditious to officer safety, they are not rights at all.
So many of you are so damn familiar with the 1st and 2nd amendments you've seem to have forgotten the 6th and 8th. For shame.
It's nice to see I am not alone.
