This.

Although, I'd remove the word "rapidly" from that statement. It would otherwise mean that you're in transition. Which you're not.

I say we are. I say we just crossed the threshold, when what was effectively a military operation (involving over 9,000 "troops", many equipped and even uniformed like soldiers) was just carried out in our domestic territory, just to capture one guy.

Where in what I said did you read I don't want him to be held accountable for his actions?
As for the rest I think it's a problem that shoot first ask questions later ins't seen as a measure of last resort and is commonly and trivially accepted. Don't get me wrong I know full well that sometimes (including this incident) it's the only thing to do even though I'd rather people are captured alive.

You seemed to be agreeing with notageek, whose post was phrased as though it was intended as a disagreement with mine (although it was pretty much off on a different tangent). I was trying to comprehend.
