Learning points for SWAT Teams. Have to go back to what is the objective of the SWAT operators on scene and what was their mission; SWAT Teams have an overall mission set to save lives; did their actions that day save lives; the SWAT Team being on-site is a discussion for another day. Did they escalate the situation and place themselves in a position of risk, What was there training like; 18 rounds in the middle of several baton rounds; sympathetic gunfire. I would like to see there training records when working with less-lethal.
