I’ve talked to a few Dallas cops about Marisela Villa getting her bail reduced from $1 million to $250,000. Villa’s the woman who shot and injured a SWAT officer during a no-knock raid where officers kicked in the doors and threw flash-bang grenades through the windows, despite the fact there were children present. Most of the officers, out of understandable blue loyalty, aren’t thrilled. But one raised a good point. He asked:
How can anyone claim she knew it was the police when the whole point of a pre-dawn, dynamic entry is to disorient the target?
