Yet more on US police - the Boston Tea Party has a lot to answer for

Three in a row is probably enough, but you shouldn't miss the story about the family who got a morning visit from a SWAT team because they drink loose-leaf tea. Full story here. At least one can be confident that that wouldn't happen in the UK.

I'm not the only right-wing extremist who doesn't like that kind of thing. Mark Steyn, from whom I got this story, notes "the five-to-seven officers required to kill a 95-year old veteran for refusing to take his medication; the multiple law-enforcement agencies needed to off a confused woman with a baby on board who drove too near King Barack's palace - and who earned the cheers of Congress for so dispatching her. In recent days, a mentally ill homeless man was shot dead for "illegally camping" in the Albuquerque foothills, and at a traffic stop in South Carolina a 70-year old veteran was shot by an officer who thought the man was reaching for a gun. It was his cane."
