    Navy Yard: Swat Team 'Stood Down' at mass shooting scene[W:13]

    One of the first teams of heavily armed police to respond to Monday's shooting in Washington DC was ordered to stand down by superiors, the BBC can reveal.

    A tactical response team of the Capitol Police, a force that guards the US Capitol complex, was told to leave the scene by a supervisor instead of aiding municipal officers.

    Figures, sounds like Benghazi all over again.
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    This would be hard to criticize, in my opinion. They may have felt they had enough response -- or had no way for everyone deployed to communicate with everyone else. THAT short-coming could spell disaster.

    No criticism here without more information.
    The devil whispered in my ear, "You cannot withstand the storm." I whispered back, "I am ​the storm."

    When they say "One of the first teams of heavily armed police to respond to Monday's shooting " does that mean they were part of other teams arriving there initially?

    I guess it needs to be establish if other tactical arrived at the same time. If they were the only tactical team to arrive it seems odd they would call them back.

    I have a question for you: do you think the BBC is mainstream media?
