Comment: Stupid thing to shout.

(See in situ)


Stupid thing to shout.

The girl yelled "Nobody here is armed. Nobody has a gun." And there's 15 SWAT goons in the room with her, all yelling something themselves. So it just takes one moron to mis-understand what she's saying as: "(somebody) HAS A GUN!" And they start shooting.

Better chance of surviving the encounter if you just raise your hands, fingers spread wide open. SWAT teams are looking for obedience and submission first; don't try to argue with them until they've decided you're not about to shoot back. They are trained to be bullies and cowards -- a very dangerous combination.
