    Good article. I have found the Cato Institute to be a very good place for "conservative" information.

    Some sound thoughts there Tony and I agree with this one too -

    Tighten search warrant standards.

    Too many of the several hundred botched raids I've researched happened because police collected tips from shady confidential informants, then failed to do enough corroborating investigation to verify the information.

    It doesn't take much evidence to procure a conventional search warrant. Using a SWAT team to kick down someone's door ought to require a bit more. Mere possession of an illicit substance should never be enough to merit these kinds of tactics.

    If we must use SWAT teams to serve drug warrants, it should only be in cases where it's clear the suspect is distributing, is armed and is likely to react to a warrant with violence.
