When I got up this morning, there were several alerts on Facebook about a veteran in Kentucky being involved in a stand-off with the local Sheriff Department’s SWAT Team. I don’t have any real details, so the following will be predicated on the minimal information available from the local news sources’ websites.
Apparently, the man in question allegedly made some comment or comments on Facebook.
“ A man triggered a response from multiple SWAT teams Saturday evening after making a bizarre, vague post on Facebook.“Important announcement at 6pm.” the first post from the suspect said.
Covington Police eventually responded to a home on Michigan Avenue after being informed of a possible emotional crisis.” (Source: River City News)
This of course, resulted in the local Sheriff’s Department being contacted by someone, and them responding with a SWAT roll-out. Of course, the local media is saying it’s for the children, because he had his kids at home.
While the subject’s name hasn’t been released, so there’s no way to find out what his FB posts actually said, one of the alleged quotes cited by River City News resulted in the funniest part of the whole mess (if it can be called funny under the circumstances):
“Shots fired at my house,” the man posted. “Ensure (sic) to thank Senator Rand Paul and his assistant…for their help. SWAT team is here. See how well they do when I have night vision, too.”
