Jas, I'll try to find the article on the Swat team, but it was a few years ago.
From what I remember is that the Swat team had a warrant to go and arrest the guy who lived in the house, which happened to be his grandma's house, and his grandma was sitting inside waiting for the police to come in.
As to the pepper spray Tiger... you can't spray that stuff in a hospital. If anyone has any experience with pepper spray, it shouldn't require too much thinking to realize how many problems would arise with other patients throughout the hospital, especially if it got into the ventilation.
The guy was weilding a weapon and wouldn't drop it. Who knows what he would do with it and if he would hurt someone. As said before, he was delusional and you can't guess what he will do with that knife. Oh my bad, a "Pocket" knife. Then again, a plastic fork or Spork is more dangerous than this...
EDIT: Jas, the video of the speech of President Bush....that is the job of the secret service. You can't have people coming up to the President of the United States like that. They have no idea who she is, or what she will do. Maybe she will just speak and yell like she was doing, but the Secret Service's job is to protect the President. The woman charging the stage where Bush is at, they have no idea what she is going to do. They have the right to free speech, but you can't start yelling at the President while running at him.
"When I hear athletes call themselves warriors, it does bother me a little bit. When I think of a warrior, I think of the Marines I've led in combat, those Marines that sacrificed so much...no showers, little food, no contact with their family, all for their love for their brother Marine and for their love for their country. That's a warrior, willing to lay his life on the line. I've had Marines that have laid their lives on the line for the man next to him, and for their family and country. That's a warrior. The guy who goes into some athletic contest who has no war experience, in my eyes, really has no right to call himself that. That's a coveted thing to call someone, and that's what I call my Marines. Those are warriors." - Brian Stann
