So I understand law enforcement has it's dangers. Being prior military, having several friends in the LEO community and testing to become one myself I get that. Kind of goes with the job. This seemed a little extreme and ill orchestrated (Man with pellet gun arrested after police move in with armored truck | Local & Regional News | Eugene News, Weather, Sports, Breaking News | KVAL CBS 13) and I can say this as I witnessed it unfold 100 yards away with binoculars. Of course local media is twisting the story and details to where nothing makes sense. One sentence the guy is in his front yard loading a pellet gun (while it points at his neighbors yard opposed to a busy road) then it says he is charged with discharging a firearm. From my vantage point there were 5 LEO's hanging out behind a neighbors truck and no one approached the house until SWAT came out. As soon as the SWAT van pulled into the driveway a female came out appearing confused about what was going on and shortly followed by a male who appeared to obey commands to get down, turn around, and spread his arms out. If police are going to start responding to all civil/domestic disturbances this way it only makes you wonder what they would have done if it was a real firearm.
