Must-See: Doraville, GA’s Insane SWAT Team Video
Jon Stokes 08.19.14
I’m not trying to get on a Ferguson thing here, but this is so awesome it deserves to be shared more widely. Via Radley Balko at the Washington Post comes the following slice of 2014 American insanity:
The images at the beginning and end are from The Punisher, the fictional character described by Wikipedia as ‘a vigilante who employs murder, kidnapping, extortion, coercion, threats of violence, and torture in his war on crime.’ The audio is the song ‘Die Motherf—-r Die’ by Dope.
Doraville is a town of about 8,500 people, in the northeast suburbs of Atlanta. It last saw a murder in 2009 (at least through the end of 2012, the last year for which I can find statistics).
I laughed. I cried.
