No, I did not. NHCS paid because Long made a serious error. My point, however, is that were Strickland not a punk, thug, violent robber, (or whatever you want to call him) the ERT would not have even been there.
Second point, had they opened the door immediately, there would have been no reason to use the battering ram that spooked Long.
As far as arresting him at Cape Fear, you do not arrest a suspect AWAY from the location for which you also have search warrants. That's common sense....and they WERE serving search warrants as well. You bust Strickland downtown, one of his compadres calls his roommate and the eveidence is suddenly gone.
Don't let your predjudice toward law enforcement officers switch your brain into neutral, Sailboat. Unless you have served warrants, you have no idea what is involved in the planning and execution.
