EPA sends armed SWAT team on raid to enforce... suspected dirty water

You know, if a local business is polluting the local water supply, my first though would be that it's probably accidental, or possibly that new regulations have been issued to make a practice previously considered safe illegal. I would expect to see a letter sent to the company on official Environmental Protection Agency letterhead, possibly with a scientist conducting a local inspection in a lab coat, followed by lawyers in suits if the problem is not corrected. Such disputes can and usually are worked out in court with relative ease and peaceful behavior.

If the EPA's first choice of enforcement method is a SWAT team, we are living in a police state.
