    What kinda idiots run these swat teams, murder by cop happens way too often in situations like this
    Total bullshit

  2. Exile1981 says:

    Illegal to threaten to kill yourself but ok for the police to kill you. That makes perfect sense -sarc

  3. Unclezip says:

    Who the fuck sends a SWAT to a mental health call? This shit is out of control. Broke in to save her – bullshit. They broke in to put an end to sitting around in hot tacticool gear.

  4. Chris Mallory says:

    Turn off the water, turn off the power and WAIT. The cops get paid no matter what they are doing. Standing in a circle around the woman’s house is probably a more productive use of their time as anything else they are doing.

  5. Larry says:

    “We had to kill the woman in order to save her.”

    sarc/ “No officer was harmed, but most importantly,they all went home at the end of their tour.”

    Well if she’s catholic, she doesn’t go to hell now.
    Technicalities Matter.

      Or if she follows the Norse traditions.

      Killed in battle – go to Asgard and to Odin’s or Thor’s halls (or some of the other gods’ halls), fight all day, drink all night, repeat until Ragnarok.

      Any other death, suicide, old age, drowning, and you are consigned to the Cold Plains under the care of Hel, daughter of Loki, who is half white/half black, literally. One side of her body is white, the other is black. And she takes care of her charges.

      Or, if you’re an evil soul, there are worse fates for you.

      • Heathen says:

        Either Odin’s hall or Freya’s for those selected in battle.

        Helheim for those who die a “straw death. Hel’s two sides are one side alive & beautiful, the other a rotting corpse.

        Ran’s for those drowned.

        Nifelhel for nithlings.

        You are your deeds.

    To Exile1981: the AAR will conclude, “Good Shoot!”

    There are guys that get a hard on just talking about getting out the SWAT gear.
    I swear the cop I was talking to was rubbing one out under the table!
    I have a problem with them going all gung-ho on nonviolent offenders much less a suicide call…

    • Odgreen says:

      Yeah, the freakin’ pigs helped her alright, helped her add a few holes she wasn’t born with. A$$#@£€$.

  12. Cavguy says:

    Stupid fucking cops at it again! Never call them, avoid them, never ever ever talk to the cops, on or off duty. These slime are not to be trusted.

  13. Sanders says:

    Dang, that gal was EOD and an EMT? Talk about wound up tight!

    She was summarily executed in the field for the heinous crime of “Kontempt of Kop”.

  14. Padawan says:

    Local 10 reported that she was pronounced dead at the scene, and that officers told the station that they sent the most well-trained officers they could to help Ambury.

    In other words they sent in the cops the higher ups knew have itchy trigger fingers.

    I wasn’t there and neither were y’all.
    Jumping to conclusions based almost NO details is a Halfass democrat politician and media trick and most of y’all should be ashamed to put that in writing.

    Having said that, I’m seeing way too much swat killing people.

    And I agree that a perimeter and negotiator should have been step 1.
    That could last a day or two before step 2.

    • Wirecutter says:

      Nope, we weren’t there but every one of us came to the same conclusion you did in your last paragraph, so basically you’re condemning us and agreeing with us in the same statement.

      • Jeffery in Alabama says:

        Mark’s comment sounds like it came straight from the mouth of a “master politician”.

    Dumb fucks playing solider.

If your comment 'disappears', don't trip - it went to my trash folder and I will restore it when I moderate.
