    I think their may have been good reason for it depending on what other agencies were on site or on the way. If local police or other security personel were on site I wouldn't want the SWAT team busting in and mistaking the good guys for bad guys. I don't know what the real reasons were but that would make sense to me.

    Greetings, apdst.
    Who knows? I think an investigation should be conducted to find out.

    Yes, obviously. But getting Congress involves just turns it into a partisan witch hunt. Somehow I suspect the Representative from Texas is more interest in making this stick to Democrats than actually saving lives in the future.

    Greetings, apdst.
    It is not out of the ordinary. SWAT does not charge in like the cavalry. They come in with a prepared plan. Yes, that means that they will hold back in an ongoing incident rather than charging in like rambo and find a proper moment to come in. Yes, that is even if people are being brutally killed while they sit and wait. That is not out of the ordinary at all, and i am not surprised to hear they did that.

    Sounds like BS to me

    Some unnamed cop says they received a stand down order? This cop tells the media and a congressperson, but doesn't say who gave the stand down order?

    What, is there some sort of ambiguity about the chain of command there?

    Looks like stand down orders from unnamed commanders is the new boogieman of the wingnuts

    In view of the fact that SWAT usually does come in like the cavalry, and we expect them to do so and get the messes cleaned up, exactly when might we expect to be told what plans they might have for future problems? For you to state that it's reasonable for them to stand down and watch while people are being slaughtered doesn't even make sense! Has it become "every man for himself, because I was told to stand down?" My God! There are grieving families involved here...what if it was your son or another member of your family? Shades of Benghazi becoming the norm! I hope I misunderstood your post!

    Greetings, tererun.

    And any Democrat that gets involved will be more interested in protecting Obama's messianic image than saving lives.
