SWAT training videos...

Over at The Agitator, Radley has a SWAT training video for warrant service.  He points out a couple significant flaws with the training depicted from a civil rights perspective.  Among others, the identification of the team as police officers is not made until after the door has been smashed in with a battering ram.  The officers do appear to be in uniform, but the uniform does not appear to have any indication that the officers are actually police -- it's basically camoflage under body armor.  That by itself has dangerous military implications.
