Militarization of the police: Confront police brutality through organized mass action
Nazila Bijari
Wearing full body armor and armed with assault weapons, SWAT teams’ tactics make it much more likely that people will be killed. Using no-knock raids, they rush into a resident’s home by breaking the door. Immediately upon entry, they commonly use “flash-bang” grenades, which render people temporarily blind and deaf. Naturally, the targets of such raids might assume that their home is under attack by criminals. If the residents are armed and try to defend themselves, they are likely to be killed by the SWAT team.
