~1 Out Of Every 208 Homes Have Been SWAT Raided

Rough back-of-the-envelope calculation:

117,538,000 households in the US.

It’s reported that 50,000 to 80,000 SWAT raids have occurred per year since the mid 2000’s; so let’s use 2004 as a starting point for a 10 year span of time.

That works out to around 1 out of every 235 households on the low end.  Assuming there have been 80,000 SWAT raids per year, that would be around one out of every 146 households.

The average being 208 households.

During this period of expanded police military actions, the violent crime rate by civilians has plummeted substantially.

    Police State… And in Texas No Knock Raids!! Where cops get shot because people think criminals have burst into the house… Well they did actually because no law supercedes our 4th Amendment.
