Round up the usual suspects. I always laugh when blacks and liberal white apologists complain about the high rate of incarceration for black criminals. Commit the crime, do the time. What else needs to be said, other than stop the hand wringing and imprison the criminals.

Why were SWAT teams deployed to execute a warrant?

Use of a SWAT team may be as a result of the tragedy that occurred in Santa Cruz earlier this year. Better to be safe than dead.

Lets hope they stay in jail for a long time vs. 8 year sentence to be out in 5. If we had a legal system that held thugs accountable, our issues would be minimized.
