Another Drug Warrior is Dead, another Victim Likely Going to Jail

Police knew Robert Korbe fought with officers before, but they didn't consider him heavily armed.

So federal agents and local police officers weren't wearing full SWAT tactical gear when they broke down the door of Korbe's Indiana Township home early Wednesday to arrest him on drug trafficking charges.

Here's a crazy idea: If somebody is not considered dangerous enough for home invaders to put on a full GI Joe costume, neither Federal agents nor local police officers should initiate violence by breaking into their house in the wee hours of the morning! Of course, if the suspect is actually considered that dangerous, any non-suicidal agent will try to figure out how to avoid a confrontation.

Generally speaking most people would agree that it's a bad idea for cops to attack families at home during the night. Something about the drug war turns people into retards.
