I'll save my outrage for when I have all the facts, and find some related perspective, thanks.
So the few facts that we have, that of door-kickers with guns raiding homes on behalf of the Department of Education, is not enough to spur outrage for you?
Maybe now that Balko is watching the watchers as a member of the HuffPo staff instead of with the libertarian crackpots at Reason, some liberals might finally start to notice that the US has morphed into a shockingly militarized police state over the past 20 years.
SWAT raids for non-violent offenders is pretty much the opposite of what I would call "law and order." It's a government of thuggery.
