Destroying a house is excessive force outside of a warzone...and sometimes even excessive inside one. We didn't even burn down Bin Laden's house!
Thank you! These tactical operations are what they are trained to carry out.
Right, we didn't burn Bin Laden's house down but he was responsible for about 2,996 more deaths than Dorner.
