Are we getting into issues of inter-agency cooperation and its implications for custodial interrogation?
Probably, he never does spoilers so let’s just wait and see.
Do S.W.A.T. teams usually stand in a single-file line as they break down a door?
I believe they’re lined up oblique to the wall/door, rather than perpendicular to it.
Last time I saw a SWAT team break down a door (Meth Lab) they were on both sides of it.
& under the windows ready to pop up like deadly Jack-in-the-boxes.
Second time I read that (“both sides”), I figured out you meant right and left sides. The FIRST time I read it I thought it was in and out sides.
I would _assume_ that whenever SWAT teams are on both sides of a door they are breaking down, they are armed with paintball guns and doing some sort of training exercise. However, it would not shock me if there has been some terrible accident where this was not the case.
I would find that a bit surprising. Sure, SWAT teams can be sneaky when preparing to breach, but once they’re in a place, they’re rather unsubtle. The idea of another team moving on the same location without spotting the first is a bit far-fetched.
Gotta watch the fatal funnel. One bad guy with a rifle will ruin a whole bunch of days.
Did the… did the FBI and state cops just work together without argument?
The obvious question being whether the artistic licence is on your end or the rest of the media.
(I suspect it’s somewhere in between, although you’d probably know better than I)
If it’s just a bunch of geeks playing D&D again I’m gonna be disappointed.
Actually, I do believe we’re about to see The Big Cheese get arrested.
What about a party of nerds playing Shadowrun? Or a cabal of dorks playing Warhammer? Or a clique of dweebs playing GURPS?
Oh, that’d be bad.
Can you imagine being arrested for conspiracy to steal blueprints from one of the R&D departments of Fuchi?
Or worse. Saedar-Krupp. I do believe that one exists.
Do you really think Lofwyr would use search warrant papers and policemen to deal with such a thing?
Actually I do. The only thing runners can’t handle is lawyers.
A lawyer who is also familiar with Shadowrun? This just got interesting.
We’re more common than you think. ;)
“Watch the face, Matt”
Is Matt the guy holding the RAM? or the guy pointing a rifle at his head?
I have a horrible feeling in the pit of my stomach that Matt will not watch the face.
If we’re nitipicking (and when aren’t we), I love the standardization of the SWAT team’s armaments. We’ve got an MP5, an M16, and a… say, what model is that gun on the far left? ;)
Special weapons wouldn’t be special if they all carried the same thing. I want to imagine the last one is carrying a blowgun.
