After reading your story about the SWAT team being called out (“SWAT team called to Collins Lane apartment after man barricades self,” May 11), I have to wonder if that wasn't a serious overreaction. The story did not mention anything about him having any weapons or being a threat to anyone.
Is this the way the Frankfort Police Department de-escalates? Sounds more like being impatient on the part of the police. The crisis negotiation team should have been given all of the time needed.
Calling a SWAT team, adding more weapons to the scene, this could have went wrong in so many ways. You see it on the news all of the time.
