A SWAT team busted up a poker game of seniors. One cop and one gambler were shot.
This is not what SWAT teams are for. Actually, unfortunately, it is what SWAT teams are for. So let me rephrase: this is not what SWAT teams should be for.
The shot 72-year old reportedly said, “Why didn’t you tell me it was the cops?” According to WYFF (South Carolina), "After the exchange of gunfire, a standoff ensued that lasted about 20 minutes." The 12 people in the home were ticketed for unlawful betting and released.
Just think, if we legalize gambling... uh, it could lead to dancing? (That's the punchline to joke I can't remember--oh wait, here it is. See the last comment).
