So wait, someone called and said someone might harm themselves...and the police are in a standoff with 2 tactical teams?
This does not compute. I've seen all kinds of shut-in type things, but there's more to the story.
Well they didn't call SWAT until three hours later. Apparently, the guy isn't leaving.
To be honest, the reason they probably called the Swat team was because of this:
btw, that's a good family friend
Why should he leave? If it's his home they've got no reason to make him leave.
Again, there's something the media isn't telling here. I've seen numerous shut in stories and the police don't usually bother going all out like this unless the guy claims to have his house wired with enough explosives to replicate Hiroshima or something akin to that.
its a suicide threat...... its america (its IL)........ connect the dots
I fucking hate suicide laws, the most asinine thing ever put to paper.
agreed. let the fucker kill himself. better odds at him not taking anyone with him when he's alone
